Our vision

Why this boat? It's quite simple. Less poverty & CO2 in atmosphere. And your freedom to go anywhere.

Photographer: Annelie Pompe

The boat is self-sufficient on energy from the sun and will be financed by micro loans to fishermen in development countries.

Instead of buying fuel, the fisherman's uses his money on paying back the loan. After 3 years the loan is payed back!

The result is:

Saved money for the poor fishermen and less CO2 in our atmosphere! One step closer to fight poverty and save our planet.
