Relocation Routes

This map shows the approximate operational areas of the first six proposed Green Explorer yachts. The Red circles mark the local summer bases and the blue the winter bases. The radius of the circles show an approximate 800nm 5-day (average 8 knots) operational area. The vessels will stay in both the summer and winter locations for approx. 5 months.

This map shows the approximate operational areas of the first six proposed Green Explorer yachts. The Red circles mark the local summer bases and the blue the winter bases. The radii of the circles show an approximate 800nm 5-day (based on an average speed of 8 knots) operational area. The vessels will stay in both the summer and winter locations for approx. 5 months. The relocation routes are approximately between the centers of the red and blue circles with the same number.

Relocation:
Twice a year each Green Explorer vessel will relocate between the local summer and winter bases in both hemispheres. The red numbered circle centers show their local summer bases and the corresponding numbered blue circle centers show their local winter bases.

Chartered Ocean Passages:
During relocation the vessels can be chartered. Green Explorer Society members will have priority and preferential rates over third parties to charter – or part charter – the vessels for extended ocean passages. The exact routes and stop-overs can be planned – subject only to possible time constraints.

Big Game Fishing:
This gives the owners or third parties the opportunity to experience the unique sensation of long ocean passages under sail with exciting big game fishing and short visits to otherwise rarely visited islands and other locales.

Get Your Yacht Master Ticket:
Relocations are also a great way to build up sea-miles and practical as well as theoretical knowledge for the advanced Yacht Master tickets, such as Yacht Master Offshore or Yacht Master Ocean. Here, the Yacht Master candidate must plan the entire voyage and be the “master of the vessel” for at least a few days during that voyage. Having passed the examination, you can then take command of your own Green Explorer yacht with the possible assistance of a stand-by experienced captain in order to gain confidence and experience.
