How to get sensitised the hard way

Hurricane Irma, a category 5 disaster

that destroyed our catamaran

Catamaran Catsy a 62 ft, 50 ton catamaran, was lifted, turned up side down and crushed into a house.

Our beautiful catamaran was strapped down securely on land in a hurricane hole in the BVI’s, we had no concerns. Yet when the news started ticking in, we were not that sure anymore.

The next morning we got the message: she was completely damaged.

Time for small changes

We can’t do it all, but we can make sure we do a little. For us, the most obvious and easiest place to start was to minimise the use of fossil fuel. A luxury yacht uses massive(!) amounts of it.

A new project was born

We started to do research on how we could make a greener and greater yacht . This time, we wanted to build a luxury yacht with no compromises on comfort, yet with a complete new way of designing it in order to make sure that we were more in aligned with nature. “Use it, do not abuse it.”
