Coral reefs are vital for marine ecosystems, serving as natural barriers against wave impacts from storms. They also have economic value in fishing and tourism, with high economic worth per square kilometer. However, coral reefs are being affected by climate change and human activities. Rising ocean temperatures and acidity are causing coral bleaching as algae die off. This poses a significant threat to the intricate ecosystem of corals and fish. The CCT Yacht is designed with two seating areas, one for customers and one for guides, connected by stairs. The guide controls navigation, reef tours, and reef cleaning, while customers observe and learn about reef preservation. The yacht is equipped with solar panels to minimize pollution during reef cleaning. The project aims to raise awareness about reef challenges through social media and other channels, ultimately benefiting the well-being and prosperity of the coral reefs.
