THE PAN­GAEA

The Peak (Singapore) - - The Hot Seat -

This ship can nav­i­gate through the trop­ics and small rivers as eas­ily as it can the po­lar re­gions. It was de­signed to leave min­i­mal car­bon foot­print, so its two en­gines were made to be used only as a nec­es­sary al­ter­na­tive to the 35m mast with 600 sq m of sail­cloth. In ad­di­tion, the ves­sel is equipped with large nets to col­lect bot­tles and plas­tic bags from the wa­ters. The hull is left de­lib­er­ately un­painted, so that when the ship has to break through ice, no paint flecks would break off and be toxic to the en­vi­ron­ment.
