The project

We want to sail a new ship in the Central Mediterranean to provide life-saving assistance to anyone in danger at sea – often women, children and men fleeing from wars, tyranny, climate change and extreme poverty. 

Support us

A new SAR vessel
in the Mediterranean…

…to save lives of whoever needs help, in accordance with the non-negotiable humanitarian principles of Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence and Humanity. 

Operations at sea and on land


How much will it cost?

We are mainly (but not only) counting on a crowdfunding campaign, the method that best embodies the desire to set sail a civil society ship, a ship for everyone.


This is the minimum amount we need to buy and equip a new Search and Rescue vessel that can safely sail in the Central Mediterranean Sea.

€1 million

Once we reach this goal, we’ll be able to cover the costs of the ship and the operating costs for the first 3 months of activities at sea.

€2,5 million

This amount will enable us to purchase and renovate the vessel and and to cover all the operating costs for one year of activities at sea, including the crew, fuel, berth hire and other necessary expenses.
