expedition zero

Unlock the future of sustainable expedition sailing

Purposeful yachts for people and planet

Our Mission

Design, build and lease the world’s lowest environmental impact adventure sailing yachts, optimised for the needs of commercial operators everywhere.

Sailing Operators want to take clients on epic sailing adventures, not crawl around doing maintenance, worrying what might break next. Expedition Zero will give them flexible access to beautiful, modern ultra-low emission vessels that can go anywhere, without compromise.

The first Expedition Zero vessel is planned for launch in early 2025 with an incredible proving voyage through the Northwest Passage.

How to get involved

We are at the start of the journey. Join with us and help us build the future of sustainable adventure sailing.


We have partnerships in place, business plans ready and our first lease customers already lined up. We are now open to speak with investors who can help us scale globally.


There are exciting opportunities to showcase your technology and brand on board our fleet. This can even include full branding of a yacht giving exceptional brand visibility as the fleet undertakes the greatest ocean expeditions world-wide.

Our contribution to the planet


Ultra low environmental impact construction materials throughout, reducing our CO2 footprint compared to traditional materials used in yacht construction.


Upcycling of existing hulls, There are an estimated 24,000 abandoned yachts in Europe alone, unloved and with no “end of life” options except landfill. We will breath new life into these vessels, giving them new purpose.


Zero fossil fuel consumption, all electric propulsion and services. All energy derived from the Sun, Wind and Movement through the water.


All materials used can be recycled at end of life.
