The Nomad Story

Exploring and Developing Sustainable Marine Projects

Project created in Hong Kong and exported to Indonesia in 2018.

Where it all started ...

When visiting a new place, the least we can do is to preserve it as we found it or contribute to make it better. With this philosophy in mind, we started to imagine how to make an impact in our own way. The head full of dreams, we imagined NOMAD, a boat with the mission of exploring with purpose, showing the value of our ecological heritage in remote world-class natural sites. We were also thinking of a concept of boat accessing remote villages, more intimate and breaking free from massive tourism and its downsides. The project we were dreaming of started becoming real with the engagement of our passionate team and the NOMAD design from Guillaume Chaussade, French naval architect.

Building the foundations

With the help of young and passionate engineering and business school graduates from McGill, Pierre and Jean-Michel designed Nomad Plastic. Quickly the team started to look at a first area to explore and share our vision with as well as applying our model. Not far from the Komodo Park and the main city of Labuan Bajo, we found an isolated coastal village named Rangko: this is where we settled and built our first base. This was the beginning of a challenging journey to start explaining our purpose to local communities.

Preparing for action

With a local team, dedicated to awareness raising, education program preparation and ecosystem mapping, we progressively had a good understanding of the way to approach local communities to be efficient and make progress in terms of consciousness of the value of the environment, the importance of protecting it and as such take actions like sorting waste etc.

Ready now for impact

After now two years of operations in Rangko, our boats are nearly ready and can't wait to explore other remote areas with high potential and threatened by plastic pollution and biodiversity loss. We are aiming at drawing on this first experience and expanding our impact.

With some innovation projects ongoing, we are always keen to join forces and share our experience to make a difference at a higher speed.
