We are extremely happy to announce our first big investor has confirmed participation up to half million dollars, meaning we will start building a 1:10 model THIS SUMMER!!!
Plastique of Fanø
Tradition meet innovation in Fanø, creating new design concepts in vessel hulls constructions, starting with a 56 meter long and 20 meter wide next trend in sailing party platform cruise vessel.
What: Foil sailing quare rigged GRP Amiblu pipe catamaran with plastic scooping and treatment plant.
Why: Collect platics from our oceans while cruising and promoting Nautical Tourism.
When: Pending funding /crowdfunding already 2019 1st Quarter.
Who: A group of young people from Southen Denmark University and experienced Danish boatbuilders
Where: Build at Esbjerg windmill harbour to cruise the world.
How to be involved: Register your interest in below form and we will come back to you.
Plastique is a daring project to build a unique catamaran to circumnavigate the world to participate in the next step in nautical tourism and making awareness of plastics good and bad impacts on our world. Our objective is to create the best events and sailing vessel to sail, party and participate in harbor cities, beach or nautical events around in the nautical world.
By combining a tall ship rigging, a copy of the sail training tall ship Danmark, and a GRP pipe based construction reinforced by carbon structure the vessel will be unique in beauty, speed and innovation. Using ordinary GRP water pipes, in a 10 foil catamaran hull concept and spars of composite, we'll make a very fast and relatively inexpensive totally different sailing cruise vessel.
With sleeping space for 100 “tourists” and dorms for 20 trainees/crew, our voyage program will also have intense sailing experience and social interaction as objective, besides the nautical and sailing community events participation. During voyage a net contraption between hulls will collect plastics and other debris from the water.
Why Fanø Denmark, well it has a prominent place in the history of shipping and was in the end of 1800 center of "Great Danes" in the worldwide shipping, before the engine started taking sailing ships away from the ocean. Also the island boost a prime location of wind and sailing weather on inland sail condition in the Wadden Sea, and numbers in turism economy of Denmark, only second to Copenhagen. Our nearby Esbjerg we find a international community of students on the technical universities to help us and it is the home of offshore windfarm industry, where the fiber/carbon wings were inspiration. Here carbon fiber and fiber constructions in the blades are world leading.
Inspiration also comes from carbon fiber hulls production, by Tuco (www.tuco.dk), that have proven the future of carbon fiber ship hulls, maybe the future are in our concept of winded pipe construction. With the technology and know-how in GRP and carbon fibers, Tuco have proven that many big hulls of different types vessels can be of carbon fiber. It may be a plastic but it's a highly sophisticated building material that are three times stronger than steel and half the weight of aluminum and as such a solution 99% recyclable.
By combining the GRP and carbon fiber in a light catamaran pipe hull design, with the tall ship furling rigging done with carbon fiber spars, a new combination in tall ship sailing will be tested. Adding foil sailing capacities may just mean game changing in the sailing cruising world. New technoogy in infusion of fibers and double winding pipe production, may also make construction price very atractable.
Besides nautical events participating income, the marketing income on our huge sail area, where we are starting out with famous artists painting exhibition by laser projection fore invited artists. The cruise planning will take into consideration big events, city celebrations, special holiday events like Rio Carnival, Chinese Newyear, ARC, Vendee etc worldwide.
In financing we turn to a event and crowdfunding account setup, which again will give first rights on cruise tickets, and of course only when we reach completed “critical mass” in budgets, the Plastique project will start constructing and recieve funding.
