It starts with imagining what is possible: the
basis for a unique concept was laid by Foundation⁰ - the build of
a completely fossil free operating sailing yacht.
Project Zero, as the initiative is known, seeks to unlock new
zero-emission energy sources, rethinking fundamental issues
regarding energy harvesting, savings, storage and energy management
on the path to develop a new standard for marine travelling.
Commissioned by Foundation⁰, a team of renowned industry experts
has assembled to bring this project to life, including Dykstra
Naval Architects, Vripack Yacht Design and Vitters Shipyard. Today,
we are proud to announce that after 11 months of construction,
project 3094, has made her first and preliminary splash. Vitters
Shipyard has subcontracted the hull to 'Jacht en Scheepswerf
Gouwerok' in Aalsmeer, The Netherlands. For this classic ketch
Dykstra Naval Architects is responsible for the Naval Architecture
where Vripack took on the challenge for the exterior and interior
styling. Owner's Representative MCM Newport.
Throughout the project numerous important milestones will pass
on all levels of the development, which will be captured and shared
with the general public. In line with Foundation⁰'s mission, all
data will be made available through open source, to those who are
interested and for all to benefit from. Ultimately contributing to
positive impact by changing the maritime industry.
