Pachamama is an Inca word that means much more than “Mother Earth”. It suggests a lifestyle in harmony with nature.
Pachamama serves as a reference for the cruising world. Bernard Nivelt designed this 50 feet aluminium sloop especially for this extraordinary expedition. The design objective and concept of Pachamama was to develop a vessel that can operate sustainably and fully autonomously (renewable energies) with maximum safety in the toughest marine environments. With Pachamama, we set new limits and give another example that great goals can be achieved in harmony with nature. Several world-leading companies around the globe are participating to outfit Pachamama with state of the art technologies and products.
