1. E coco-Friendly
Coco would like to impart humanist values through its e-coco-friendly project: Excursions are welcome for diverse groups, including boat trips for female only participants. Our brand endeavors to raise environmental awareness; highlighting upcycling and renovation work, as well as the discovery and preservation of local heritage. Bilingual guides are available.
2. Feminist, inclusive and generous Warm and Inclusive
Generosity and inclusivity are central to our philosophy: Share a dinner realized by a local chef, learn how to sail, listen stories of Marseille, marvel in front of the fauna and flora, and make new acquaintances… Aboard our floating jewel, everything has been formulated with cohesion and social connection in mind.
3. The Mediterranean today
Beyond its beauty and its treasures, The Mediterranean Sea is also charged with tragic stories. Day after day, the Sea morphs into a gloomy marine graveyard, in which men, women, and children endeavor to cross the sea and risking their lives on make-shift boats in search of a better life… For those who succeed, the trauma of the experience persists. Coco strives to assist associations who help these rescued migrants to overcome these distressing experiences, helping individuals to regain confidence at sea.
4. A ship all year at sea
Unfortunately, in the Vieux Port, two thirds of the boats leave the Vieux Port less than 30 days per year. Therefore, 1 500 vessels are inactive for 11 months of each year. We endeavor to reserve one day each month to provide associations and social organizations the opportunity to discover the pleasure of life at sea. We believe that preserving local heritage starts with boosting activity and with operating efficient communication that reaches out to a wider audience. With such a varied program of activities, we are committed to breathing both life and fun back into these traditional fishing boats.
