It starts with imagining what is possible: the basis for a unique concept was laid by Foundation⁰ - the build of a completely fossil free operating sailing yacht.

Project Zero, as the initiative is known, seeks to unlock new zero-emission energy sources, rethinking fundamental issues regarding energy harvesting, savings, storage and energy management on the path to develop a new standard for marine travelling. Commissioned by Foundation⁰, a team of renowned industry experts has assembled to bring this project to life, including Dykstra Naval Architects, Vripack Yacht Design and Vitters Shipyard. Today, we are proud to announce that after 11 months of construction, project 3094, has made her first and preliminary splash. Vitters Shipyard has subcontracted the hull to 'Jacht en Scheepswerf Gouwerok' in Aalsmeer, The Netherlands. For this classic ketch Dykstra Naval Architects is responsible for the Naval Architecture where Vripack took on the challenge for the exterior and interior styling. Owner's Representative MCM Newport.

Throughout the project numerous important milestones will pass on all levels of the development, which will be captured and shared with the general public. In line with Foundation⁰'s mission, all data will be made available through open source, to those who are interested and for all to benefit from. Ultimately contributing to positive impact by changing the maritime industry.
