The future of climate friendly shipping

Since 2007 Fairtransport's mission has been to raise awareness of climate-friendly transportation and to minimize our communal carbon footprint. With our engineless sailing fleet, Tres Hombres and Nordlys, we trade organic and traditionally crafted goods, and ship sustainable cargo overseas by wind power alone.

Become a trainee in 2022!

Sail along! Our engineless ships provide an ideal situation for training young and experienced seafarers. Due to the rigors and challenges of 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 are taught the history of sail, the physics of sail theory, and navigation. Completing a full round-trip of at least half a year with Tres Hombres is just as rewarding and adventurous as a European voyage of a couple of days on board the 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.
