A project for self-help and self-sufficient energy supply at sea
A ship as a symbol of another philosophy of life
The word “Cachalote” is Spanish and Portuguese for “sperm whale”. It is also the name of our ship – a 65 foot catamaran designed to sleep 14 people.
Just a fantasy for freaks... ?
We plan and dream to build a 65-foot catamaran with a lugger sail, according to the innovative design and construction plans of Tim Dunn, BigCat, Inc. , in Arlington, Washington (USA).
A unique design
A fast ship. Estimated maximum speed 26 knots.
6 double and 2 single cabins

Let’s continue …
All my life I have seen the use of energy (electricity, gasoline, gas and solar) as controversial, limited availability, polluting and very expensive. Besides, I had to work hard to get it.
It doesn’t have to be like this! …
A tribute to Stephen Davis
The 2 videos made off the coast of Gomera, Spain were created by my old friend Stephen Davis, using the crew’s photo and video footage.
A very special and for us very rare encounter with sperm whales.
Stephen was instrumental in developing the content of this website. Unfortunately, his health no longer allows him to participate in this project. He lives in Arizona, USA.

Entering a port is more than just arriving
The word “harbour” is magic. After a long day of sailing, it means peace, protection, fun, eating and dancing, doing nothing or time for repairs.
Harbor has something spiritual for me too. “Getting to yourself”: Knowing who I am and what my job is. Being able to live out my real abilities is what I feel when I sail into a port.
Do you want to find out for yourself?
“Yes, I have violence in me, but not negative. When a tiger tears its tamer, they say the tiger is violent and puts a bullet in its head. My violence is the violence of the free man who refuses to submit. Creation is violent. Life is violent. Birth is violent. A storm, an earthquake are violent movements of nature. My violence is the violence of life. It is not violence against nature, like the violence of the state, which sends your children to the slaughterhouse, dull your brains and expels your souls!”
– Klaus Kinski, German actor, 1926 – 1991
“A strong mind is not one capable only of strong movements, but one which remains in equilibrium with the strongest movements, so that in spite of the storms in the chest of insight and conviction, like the needle of the compass on the stormy ship, the finest play is permitted.”
– Carl von Clausewitzm, Prussian Major General, 1780 – 1831
