This paper presents the results of a study of sustainable technologies that could be used in the design of an inland leisure craft carried out with particular reference to the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads. The first phase of the study involved identifying the appropriate technologies and ranking them using stakeholder consultation and expert opinion. Subsequently life cycle analysis and life cycle costing were carried out for a hypothetical fleet of leisure craft utilizing the identified high-ranking technologies. On the basis of the outcome of the analyses, cost effective eco-friendly technologies have been identified for leisure craft design within specified scenarios. © IMechE 2007.
