Motor Yacht Pi - Row for cleaner oceans


We are duty-bound as seafarers to respect the oceans as we earn our living travelling across the seven seas. With our combined experience of travelling over the whole globe over the course of many years, we have seen the effect of plastic pollution first hand. Having once experienced pristine environments full of marine life, it is demoralising and heartbreaking to see how much these remote places have been destroyed in recent years by plastic pollution. 

As an industry, we are aware of the impact that our daily choices have on the environment and as a crew, we are committed to reducing our impact in any way that we can.  We have eradicated the use of single-use plastics where ever possible, we have been very conscious of our recycling efforts and we take the utmost care not to pollute our marine environment as a common practice.  Furthermore, as many seafarers are passionate about the environment we work in, the crew onboard MY Pi have taken it upon themselves to raise money and awareness for The Ocean Cleanup Initiative.

We are aiming to row continuously for 12 hours each day for the duration of the 3-week crossing from Amsterdam, Netherlands to the Panama Canal. We are welcoming all donations, whether you think we will do 3km per hour or you think we will match the 5,500 Nautical Miles across the Atlantic, all we can guarantee is that we will give it our all and make your donations worth it!
