Winch Design, a full-service design and architecture studio specializing in exterior and interior design of yachts, aircraft, and residential and commercial properties, Boat International, and the leader in the NFT yachting space Cloud Yachts have created a series of NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain to aid ocean conservation.
Winch Design’s Message in a Bottle NFT series includes three visuals themed around B.O.B. (Bio Observation Bottle) and oceanographic marine research pods.
Artwork #1 showcases the bottle-shaped hull that symbolizes the plastic litter in the water, while the spherical interior embodies Earth and the need to protect it.
Artwork #2 shows B.O.B. on an oil rig to represent the transition from a polluted world dependent on fossil fuels to a more sustainable future.
Artwork #3 displays B.O.B. being transported by HALO – an airship concept created by Winch Design.
HALO is the most ecological way to transport a number of B.O.B.s to the oceans, from where they would self-propel using wind-generated energy. Once reaching its final destination, the vessel would submerge and start cleaning the plastics from the ocean while generating energy through the turbine on top. On land, B.O.B. would act as a static research rig before being transported to the next destination.
The profits will benefit Oceans Without Borders and Yachts for Science.
- Oceans Without Borders is dedicated to marine conservation and community development, working to care for land, wildlife, and people through a partnership between Africa Foundation and &BEYOND.
- Yachts for Science platform connects yacht owners and crew with marine scientists and researchers to create relationships that provide the important information required for decision-makers to bring about the protection and recovery of our oceans.
