About Fair Winds Trust

Fair Winds Trust is putting transport into the ethical equation with a zero-emissions low-impact cargo sailing ship that can access goods where they are produced.

A Zero Emissions Cargo Ship

This boat can handle rough oceanic weather, is extremely rapid and highly manoeuvrable. Its shallow draft and double hulls allow it to navigate shallow river estuaries and to beach close to where goods are produced. This means we can access goods even in places where there are no roads.

Its ability to load and offload anywhere, from a major port to a beach, permits point-to-point shipping, giving remote communities direct access to world trade and minimising the need for road transport at both ends.

A Zero Emissions Cargo Ship

Shipping may be the most energy-efficient mode of cargo transport, but small ships transporting less than 4% of world cargo contribute 26% of all shipping emissions. Larger ships are making waterborne transport less expensive but at what cost? Most developing countries don’t have the infrastructure to handle these “sea giants” and are thus cut out of the world trade market.
