PROJECT

The EWOL project, whose ambassador is the impressive Way of Life (former Maxi Jena) yacht, started more than 15 years ago from a visionary idea of the famous Slovenian nautical architect, Mr. Andrej Justin. Namely, he designed a world’s biggest carbon based sailing yacht, manufactured by the vacuum infusion technology and aiming to take high performance sailing to the next level.

 

Although being of the best sailing yachts, sports results have never been the only imperative within the project. The yacht itself is acting as a symbol of cross-border cooperation, joining on board the best sailors from different European countries. Over the years, project’s message of technological excellence, team spirit and cooperation gained support from the renowned diplomats, official suppliers and business partners.

 

We are committed to further investments in the yacht as well establishing a variety of programs for the sponsors and partners! Therefore, creating a significant add-on value for all the participants within the project.

 

From September 2018, the EWOL project strives towards empowering business, technological, environmental and sports related initiatives. As such, it acts as a R&D platform for innovations and a global symbol of excellence.
