S/Y Avontuur Timbercoast.com
TimberCoast provides wind-powered cargo shipping. Their 1920’s schooner AVONTUUR is sailing in European and Caribbean waters as a tramp cargo service. The AVONTUUR is the missing link between the sustainable producer and the conscientious consumer. The statistics are clear, the current 90,000 plus container ships are destroying our oceans and spewing toxins into our atmosphere. In order for this global dependency to change they believe there must be a collaborative and viable alternative solution.
Work your passage as crew aboard an operational Sailing Cargo Yacht.
S/Y Avontuur was built in 1920 and has worked her whole life crossing oceans.
