3Ship Oesterreichischer Lloyd Cruises is primarily about a sustainable project that is looking for investors who want to participate in future projects with a lighthouse character.

The itinerary was selected based on three criteria.

First, the latitudes of the route are about 20° North/ 20° South from the equator, going east.

Secondly, the wind directions as well as the ocean currents.

Thirdly, the attractiveness of the destinations over the 7 years that a ship goes on a voyage before returning to the marina in Limassol to be serviced.

Starting in 2025, the first flotilla of three SUNREEF ECO SAIL 80 catamarans (80 feet in length or 24 meters) will leave the GDANSK shipyard for the Mediterranean. Via Kiel and Hamburg, the first fotilla arrive with a stop in Lisbon along the Atlantic coast passing Faro, Gibraltar to Mallorca on the Balearic Islands. The first part of the journey takes approx. 130 days.

From Mallorca, they travel via Marseille and Cannes along the French coast of the Mediterranean with a stop in Cagliari (Italy) to Corfu and Crete in Greece before arriving in Rhodes – the last stop before the home port of Limassol in Cyprus.
