  • Description


    Hi, my name is Borja, Im Naval Architect, YAcht Designer and Marine Engineer and lived linked to the sea ever since I was born.

    It is already 26 year aboard and many different people has already contributed to the seaworthiness of this 11.6m cruising yacht. 10 years ago it started a new phase onboard, we decided to start a project and transformed it into a nomad sailing boat meaning that we gathered together the renewable energies technologies and the electric propulsion developments put them together and since 2016 we have been enjoying life onboard.

    Each day is an adventure and we are constantly evolving; after 10 years and can say more intensively 2 years ago many has come onboard to share their knowledge and their willing to contribute to this idea of gathering just the enough energy around us to live and sail as ethereal as possible.

    Due to the nature of this project at present time we are looking for techies mainly, amperes, volts, farads, programmers, and always carpenters and painters but due to limited space onboard and the focus of attention now in high skilled project requirements the profile of newcoming sailors is desired to be as said, techpeople. Nevertheless and depending on each day we open to receive any soul willing to change things.

    It is a friends & family sailing boat and her technology is part of our also own created company which soon will have a partner new company we are creating in Vizcaya.
