Yesterday in Bremerhaven, Gremany Greenpeace launched the new Rainbow Warrior III. She’s a purpose-built motor-assisted sailing yacht specifically designed for environmental campaigning. She’s one of the greenest ships afloat now – all materials, from the paintwork to the insulation, have been chosen with a view to sustainability, and each component has been supplied with transparent ethical sourcing. At full sail she can travel at 14 knots.
She’s a beautiful ship and it was great to be at the ceremony. I hope one day to be able to sail with her!
54 meters of mast!
