After spending most of his life in Denmark, Rasmus’ family brought him up around maritime lifestyle and culture from childhood. He lived on a yacht and was introduced to an alternative way of life including a macrobiotic diet and lifestyle – avoiding animal proteins, processed foods and unsaturated fats in the knowledge that it is better for the planet. Since he was young, he has had this environmentally-friendly approach, and now runs his business in an eco-friendly manner, knowing that success doesn’t equal harming the planet. His new adventure with the three-masted schooner Linden is a flagship for his eco-profile which he is always striving to improve.
Rasmus has worked on the oceans for over 30 years on galleons, square rigs and various cargo and passenger ships. He has also worked with charters on the square-rigger MS Sørlandet. Since 2007, Rasmus has been a commercial shipowner, and his fleet has included ships for ocean research and ocean windmills in the North Sea.
Now based in Svendborg, Denmark, Rasmus takes every opportunity he can to get out on the ocean or on land to hike and hunt.
