Electric Ship Website Launch

Electric Ship is a project to redefine shipping by using a modular build concept, with multiple missions, using renewable energy.

The initial goals are to find an investor to build the first prototypes.

The business model is a solar powered electric powered multihull yacht for Swiss and Italian lakes, which have a dual purpose of AirBNB. A minimal crew will operate the yachts, starting at Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) in Switzerland which offers more than 40 km of Swiss and French culture, including the Swiss Riviera. Updated: Unfortunately, Swiss maritime law does not allow overnight sleeping on a vessel.



The electric ship project has been a few years in the making. The basic vessel design has morphed over the past few years and is now becoming a more stable design and mission.

The Electricship website originally started off as a project to develop a comprehensive renewable, affordable, modular electric ship. In my travels, I have met many inspiring people, who encouraged my passion for inventing, and thus led to my developing alternative energy systems and concepts.

I’m a fan of Nikola Tesla, and a innovator in the world of alternative energy, CO2 mitigation, travel reviews (for fun), a commercial pilot, a sailor, and an expert in Filemaker database development. My motto is never stop exploring, and always keep learning. The journey is the destination.

I am developing and designing a eco-electric-ship (multihull) which is fully sustainable for tourism, travel, or small commercial freight/trade, to travel the globe. The modular platform will be able to host a range of missions. Based on the book and community Gaviotas: A Village to Reinvent the World, I hope to evangelize solar technologies, and sustainable tourism, with zero environmental impact (actually will enhance the environment) around the world.

SeaMerlin Project

$100 MILLION Prize Purse: XPRIZE Carbon Removal is aimed at tackling the biggest threat facing humanity - fighting climate change and rebalancing Earth’s carbon cycle. Funded by Elon Musk and the Musk Foundation, this $100M competition is the largest incentive prize in history, an extraordinary milestone.‎ Any carbon negative solution is eligible: nature-based, direct air capture, oceans, mineralization, or anything else that achieves net negative emissions, sequesters CO2 durably, and show a sustainable path to achieving low cost at gigatonne scale.

Our Strategy: Harvest CO2 from the most plentiful source, the sea (where CO2 is most concentrated). This is done by a new gas leverage turbine called the Sea Merlin Engine.
