The story of Albatross Designs begins with a deep passion for sailing and for the sea. In the world of sailing, the Albatross bird has long inspired sailors with its magnificence, and is widely considered to be a symbol of good luck. Albatross was founded on the ideal that if we give nature the respect it deserves, good fortune will follow. To the founders, sailing is a metaphor for the bigger picture. At sea, a sailor must respect the value of the limited resources that surround them such as food, water, and fuel. Also, a sailor must know how his boat works and how to fix it if it breaks.

The lessons and skills that are learned at sea turned into the philosophy that Albatross was built upon. With resource conservation in mind, the founders of Albatross looked to their design skills to create the lifestyle of the future by creating impactful sustainability solutions.
