Windschip Project has partnered with Bosgraaf Yacht Design
An important step forward to build a CO2-free freighter: The Windship
Research has shown that, in order to meet the UN Convention to stay below two degrees of global warming, eleven percent of the existing merchant fleet will have to be powered by wind
AMSTERDAM APRIL 15, 2016: Windschip Project is initiated by Ron de Vos. Over the years 2000 to 2014 he wrote three books on the historic development of Dutch sailing ships. It is therefore not surprising that he has developed an innovative CO2-free windship for the merchant navy.
Peter Bosgraaf has been successfully working as an independent ship designer for over 25 years. Being an active sailor on sail- and motorboats, he knows what does and does not work, and he is an acknowledged designer of innovative and comfortable ships. He specializes in durability and light weight constructions.
The collaboration goal is to innovate and to concretize the rigging as well as the hull so when a client wants to build a windship the plan can immediately be worked out.
