Join us and explore the Oceans

What would you do, if somebody offered you a entirely self sustained sailboat with accommodations for 8 people and equipped with a little Laboratory?
We want to give people with great ideas and big goals a platform to work from: Research at sea can be pricey business-we want to make it accessible for everyone
The Oceans are an incredible eco system worth protecting and exploring. So let's go get out on the water and work on projects, research and spread the word.
The key to protecting the oceans is to understand them and the systems inside them and spread the word!
It is everyones blue planet and everyones resources we keep fishing out of there. Given the opportunity to make a change - What are you going to do?

Sustainable Boating

Boating and sailing in particular are getting more and more popular. And even though the feel of sailing is a very clean one - there are quite a few polluting factors to it. Part of this project is to spread the knowledge on how to make your (sail)boat as environmental friendly as possible and influence the water around you as little as you can.

For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it.

Marine Conservation

The second leg of Project Manaia will be to take people out on the water and spread the fascination for this amazing environment. Take students, divers and interested people on long cruises and under water, to show them what is really going on beneath that glassy surface. The vessel for this purpose is yet to be found but will be outfitted with a number of features that make it possible to sail it on a minimal footprint - even on long voyages!
