A journey of hope on World Ocean Day

"The ocean is the cornerstone of Earth's life support system & shapes its climate and weather. It holds most of life on Earth. 97% of Earth's water is there. It's the blue heart of the planet — we should take care of our heart. It's what makes life possible for us." - Dr Sylvia Earle

Today is World Ocean Day, a movement to bring us together to protect and restore the most important resource we share: the ocean.

Camper & Nicholsons is leading the way in actioning sustainable yachting practices. We have partnered with Mission Blue, Dr Sylvia Earle’s marine protection agency, to bring our technological expertise to a project to map more than 150 Hope Spots, or special places that have been identified as crucial to the health of the ocean.

The database on our website allows yacht Owners and charterers alike to search for experiences focused around zones of high biodiversity, while engaging in marine preservation and wildlife spotting in the area.

From the Arctic to the Atlantic, from coral reefs to majestic fjords, and tropical reefs to rugged coastlines, Hope Spots are sites around the planet that do exactly what they say: provide hope.

A new wave of eco-yachts is also hitting the oceans, such as M/Y Emocean, for charter with Camper & Nicholsons.

When she is delivered next month, Emocean will not only be the first explorer yacht from Rosetti Superyachts but she will also be the world’s most eco-friendly at 38m in length with a 5,000 nm range and only 60l/hr fuel consumption.

Built for an Owner who is a strict vegan and committed to environmentally friendly yachting, materials such as recycled ocean plastics have been used in the place of traditional animal products such as leather in the interior design.
