This pioneering project is the brainchild of Richard W. Roberts and Simon White, founders of TheYachtMarket.com who were, like so many of us, left devastated by the incredible BBC Blue Planet series presented by Sir David Attenborough and produced by James Honeyborne.
Compelled by the need to do something to tackle the extraordinary plight of our oceans, Richard and Simon began throwing around some ideas with some of the world’s top naval architects and yacht designers, in an attempt to look at new ways to bring together existing technologies to tackle the problem. In a worldwide attack on plastics Ocean Saviour will directly commence the massive undertaking to ensure a cleaner legacy for future generations.
Ocean Saviour is a world-first, self-powering 70m tri-deck clean-up vessel, purposefully engineered to locate, retrieve and recycle plastic from the ocean to preserve one of our most valuable assets for future generations.Read moreGet onboard
“It’s staggering to think that there is currently over five trillion pieces of plastic in the ocean which is having a huge detrimental impact on our ecosystem and the ocean’s biodiversity. It’s essential that we remove plastic before it breaks down into microplastics and, through Ocean Saviour, we aim to eradicate the ocean of this problem.”
