A Shipyard for Coastal Communities

AstilleroVerde (Spanish for “Green Shipyard”), produces world-class wooden vessels that support the organic and economic growth of coastal communities. AstilleroVerde provides educational opportunities for all members of our community and protects the ocean and environment through regenerative development.

Our community outreach includes support through donations, apprenticeships, internships, and working with Women’s Associations. Available for free to members of our community, we run courses that encourage meaningful work and provide opportunities such as:

- Sustainable, wooden boat building
- English classes
- Blacksmithing and tool making
- Sailmaking

Our reforestation program on degraded properties promotes green, nature based, planet oriented solutions, carbon sequestration, and principles of a circular economy. Planting trees works towards:

- Conservation
- Climate change mitigation
- Water purification
- Soil regeneration
- Biological connectivity

AstilleroVerde is an eco-shipyard bordered by mangroves, also home to Ceiba, a cargo sailing tall ship, where SAILCARGO INC. is embarking on an emission free, shipbuilding pursuit.

If you would like to learn more or are considering a larger donation and would like additional information or supportive documents, we work hard to create comprehensive, compelling storytelling and engaging content.
