Tres Hombres

Sailing ambassador for cleaner maritime

Tres Hombres

The Tres Hombres is the only trans-Atlantic sailing freighter without a motor! She is the flagship of Fairtransport and the sailing ambassador for cleaner sea transport. An initiative of the three friends Arjen van der Veen, Jorne Langelaan and Andreas Lackner.

The Tres Hombres sails a sustainable trade route between Europe and the Caribbean. The cargo consists of cocoa beans, chocolate bars, coffee, tea, wine and rum. Those interested can experience the adventurous freight trips of the Tres Hombres as a trainee on board.

In 2015, Fairtransport’s second sailing cargo ship, the Nordlys, went into service. This ship also only transports durable goods on wind force, but then on European waters.
