The Ship

A modern, efficient, multi-purpose maritime workhorse vessel, powered by the sun and the wind.

The Greenheart ship is the world’s first completely open source, small-scale, solar-sail working ship designed specifically with the challenges of least developed regions in mind. It is not the traditional, square-rigged tall ship of the nineteenth century, but a new vessel, combining traditional elements, modern sail technologies, and solar-electrics to create a 21st century multi-purpose maritime workhorse, powered by wind and sun.
