The 32 meter schooner Tres Hombres has been sailing emission free since December 2009. She maintains a sustainable shipping route for general cargo between Europe, the Islands in the Atlantic, the Caribbean and America. In addition to her capacity for 35 tons of cargo, she can accommodate a crew of 7 professionals and 8 trainees.
This brigantine is the prototype vessel for breaking open the market for sailing cargo, and the best part is… you can sail along with her!
Ships sailing under the Fairtransport flag are transporting exotic products, which are organic or crafted traditionally – such as olive oil, coffee, wine and rum – to make them available in the only sustainable way: by the power of the wind. The primary goal of Fairtransport is to raise awareness about the huge amounts of pollution created by the modern shipping industry and to affect positive change in the way goods are shipped around the world.
For 6 years they have been shipping cargo across the ocean by windpower only, and inspired many similar initiatives around the world. Let the revolution continue!
