The future of climate friendly shipping

Since 2007, Fairtransport's mission is to raise awareness for climate friendly transportation and to minimize our communal carbon footprint. With our engine-less sailing fleet, Tres Hombres and Nordlys, we trade organic and traditionally crafted goods and ship sustainable cargo overseas with only the power of wind.

Become a trainee in 2020/2021!

Sail along! Our engine-less ships provide an ideal situation to train young and experienced seafarers. Due to the rigors and challenges incurred by sailing cargo, sailors learn a wide range of skills and disciplines that can only be acquired by traditional sail training. Alongside this hands on learning of marlinspike seamanship, those who are interested will be taught the history of sail, the physics of sail theory as well as navigation. Completing a full round trip of at least half a year with Tres Hombres is just as rewarding adventurous as a European voyage of a couple of days on board of world’s oldest sailing cargo ship Nordlys!

Want to sail along?
Taking our planet into account is not a temporary hype for Fairtransport but a way of life!
With the help of our wonderful ships Tres Hombres & Nordlys our crews ensure clean transport by sea
and the spreading of awareness that we all have to take better care of nature.
