CITY of Mandurah will consider three donut BBQ-boats to operate from the Eastern Foreshore jetty at Tuesday’s council meeting.

A recommendation has been made for council to approve a non-exclusive jetty licence for Innospring Pty LTD to operate the BBQ-boats.

Eco BBQ-Boats is a new eco-friendly recreational hire and drive boating business based on a noise and emission-free and solar cell powered circular river cruiser with solar-electric propulsion.

Equipped with a smoke-free gas barbecue with hood and thermometer, mounted on a table in the centre, it offers a unique dining experience while slowly floating around in the picturesque Mandjar Bay.

Practically soundless and easy to operate, the emission-free electric propulsion of the Eco BBQ-Boat helps conserving the natural assets of the marine eco system by keeping the water clean, allowing only gentle and slow cruising with no boat wash and noise.

The solar propulsion system was developed and engineered by Innospiring.

Innospring has requested a 12-month trial of operations from the Eastern Foreshore.

Should the jetty not be accessible due to the construction of the new traffic bridge and the seawall on the Eastern Foreshore, it is proposed the jetty in front of The Stage Door Restaurant be used during these periods.
