Show Notes: Ep #33 Coboat – Work. Sail. Explore.
About the Episode
Co-founders Karsten Knorr and Gerald Schombs share how they got this idea off the ground and how they overcame obstacles to create the first-ever floating coworking space.
Coboat is an 82ft retrofitted sailing catamaran and floating coworking space. Circumnavigating the globe and exploring uncharted waters, Coboat will be home and office for up to 20 digital nomads as they collectively set out on a sea-faring adventure combining life, work and play.
Collaborate, innovate and create with fellow Coboaters aboard one of the most inspirational coworking environments in the world. Detach from land. Free your mind. Immerse yourself in nature. Boost your productivity on the high seas. Open yourself up to visionary solutions.
Imagine a multi-cultural group of like-minded creatives and techies, leaving behind their successful careers to embark on a Coboat voyage of discovery. This is where all the good stuff happens!
Designed for self sustainability, Coboat will use desalinated seawater and employ fishery practices with little impact on the ocean’s marine population and surrounding environment.
Whenever possible, we will sail. If the winds die down, we will power up our engines – using stored energy. Clean and quiet. Just like our electricity. As green as it gets. No oils or fossil fuels on board.
