OKEANOS VAKA MOTU’S
The Vaka Motu’s give back the power of own transportation to the people in Pacific countries. Like in the old days, when hundreds of smaller vessels where sailing between the islands, the Vaka Motu reintroduces this long forgotten independence to the Pacific. The Vaka Motu’s are an initiative of the Okeanos Foundation.
The propulsion systems of the Vaka Motu’s feature a unique and sustainable parallel hybrid combination of electric propulsion paired with a Diesel engine capable of running on coconut oil. While offering great redundancy out on the ocean, this also helps remote island communities to become fossil fuel independent.
The Vaka Motu’s are the next step in the Okeanos Foundation’s mission and committed of helping the people of Pacific islands to become economically resilient. The ever growing fleet of Vaka Motu’s brings sustainable change to the most remote places on the planet.
