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.
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.
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.
Advisors & Ambassadors
Captain & Ambassador
We firmly believe that we express our potential through our cooperation with others. Through our relationships we can influence the world, leading to solutions which are greater than those an individual may perceive.
We are connecting the world’s continents and local economies with a mode of transport that is ethical, sustainable and profitable.
Marijke de Jong
We believe in creating one multi-purpose design of a prototype ship, to be developed and tested in detail. Which then can be tweaked and adjusted to be fit for different markets and trading areas.
Ambassador / Marketing
I have joined the EcoClipper team because I believe in the absolute necessity to change, at any times but now more than ever, and I’m confident the EcoClipper will make its contribution to a better and healthier planet.
The sea is as vast as the human spirit, from calm to turbulent like our emotions, and still widely uncharted and open for exploration. The sailor represents all of our hopes and dreams upon the vast expanse of water, which is our spirit.
Being involved in the next step in engineless cargo sailing is exiting, inspiring and enriching. Happy to be on board!
