We are a company of sailors

ECOCLIPPER

We are a professional shipping company which will offer emission free transport and travel, by making use of engine-less sailing ships.

We believe that the only right way to transport goods, or travel over long distances is by way of the traditional sailing vessel.

 

We believe these sailing vessels ought to be rigged low-tech, because, in circumstances of high stress, adverse weather conditions, and the maritime environment, simplicity has proved stronger, more durable, and more sustainable than complex high-tech systems.

 

We believe in creating one multi purpose design of ship, and tweak this to develop it for different markets and trading areas.

We believe in the pure sailing vessel, without installing mechanical propulsion systems, in our ships. This will safeguard maximum sustainability of the process, and the highest standards of seamanship of our crews and organisation.

 

We strive for becoming and staying the most sustainable transport company in all different aspects and operational processes of  the organisation.

 

Investment

We offer investment opportunities in our emission free sailing cargo ships. By establishing a network of sustainable shipping lines around the world, we will create opportunities for a wealthy future, for yourself, for generations to come and the environment.

So why invest now? Capt. Jorne writes about it on our blog

Design

We’re using first-hand experience in the sailing cargo and passenger business, to design the most practical prototype sailing cargo ships. While operating these ships, we will be constantly analysing their performance, to be able to come up with new and valuable innovations.

Learn more about the design of the ship.

Operate

We will build a strong dedicated team to oversee all aspects of ship management for the future fleet of EcoClipper’s. Our commercial department will establish, oversee and carry out the sales strategy and voyage planning.

To effectively operate cargo sailing ships, we will depend on the finest crews, which is why we place the greatest possible emphasis on selecting, training and retraining the best sailors.

Using a combination of in-house technical management and third-party managers, our engineering specialists ensure the good condition of the vessels and compliance with the international rules, while directing the progress of our fleet building program.

Zero emission transport and travel

It is our intent, with the EcoClipper ship project, to combine the role of a Sail Training Vessel with a Commercial Cargo Ship, which would be capable of carrying freight, instructing trainees and passengers.

The crew

In adittion to having great interest and enthusiasm for sailing cargo and EcoClipper, our international team combines top maritime expertise and decades of experience in business developement and sound management expertise.
