The dream of a revolutionary new catamaran designed and built specifically for disabled people has been turned into reality thanks to Scott Bader, a business wholly-owned by its employees and a member of Co-operatives.

Launched in London on Saturday, April 19 the £238,000 boat was made possible by donation of almost £60,000 worth of polyester resins and employee-time from Scott Bader, a respected world-player in the supply of polymers, resins and coatings, with headquarters in Wollaston, Northamptonshire.

The construction of the 10.7m (35ft) catamaran called “Spirit of Scott Bader”, was co-ordinated by and for The Disabled Sailors Association. It will be used for day sailing, holidays and training for sailors with disabilities and is the first boat of its kind in the world.

Scott Bader is recognised for its generous charitable giving, coming in at number two in the Business in the Community ‘Per Cent Club’ league table of charitable givers.
