Beyond innovation. Nature.

Our lives depend on The Ocean* which represents our planet’s largest habitat.

It covers 70% of the earth's surface and accounts for 97% of the water on Earth. Its surface area exceeds 360 million km², while the global surface area of planet Earth is 500 million km². The Ocean regulates the climate. However, over the last 50 years, it has been warming up, acidifying, rising, being polluted and loses its biodiversity and biomass.

Our maritime activities must evolve towards more ecological solutions and therefore less polluting.
At all costs. A new world is possible. It is already showing. It’s 3.8 billion years old.

*The Ocean, also known as the World Ocean, is the largest unbroken expanse of salt water encircling continents and archipelagos.

Towards a profound evolution

It's hard to imagine a port where the water would be clear, the atmosphere calm and silent, the air steeped in salt and not diesel. It is even more difficult to imagine seas where motorized pleasure boats have no detrimental effect on flora and fauna and are in harmony with marine ecosystems. FinX wants to help make this vision a reality, using a unique technology that reduced carbon and energy impact.

This will be FinX’s goal and revolution, the new propeller-less boat engine, applicable to small, medium and large powers, electric (soon to be hydrogen), bio-inspired.

New Fin is ready to race.

The Ocean will soon have its Mustang.

Innovating through bio-inspiration

FinX is committed to taking nautical propulsion in a new direction, looking at the Ocean with respect and humility. Time has come to be thankful for what nature offers us rather than just enjoy it for utilitarian purposes. Aurélien Barrau, in his latest book Le plus grand défi de l'Histoire de l'humanité, calls for a necessary step back and awareness: "Nature is often thought of solely through the prism of what it 'brings back', of what it 'dispenses' to us. Perhaps this would be an opportunity to think of it for itself. Is it necessary to continue to see the places we invest as being "available"? A whole subtle ecosystem pre-exists there. It is not a simple resource. It should no longer be perceived in this way. It is valuable for what it is and not for what it gives us. The problem of the mass death of animals and plants is almost always presented from the point of view of its negative (often real) effects on human life. But is it not in itself catastrophic? The world exists independently of its role for our comfort. The "law of the strongest" is not only ethically indefensible, it almost always turns against those who abuse it."

Vision of its founder

"Driven by the passion for boating and very concerned about the energy transition, our team is proud to participate in the emergence of a more responsible nautical mobility. The unprecedented times our civilization is facing accelerates the rise of our collective consciousness. We can transform it into an ode to the living. The boating industry must be profoundly revolutionized and we are firmly convinced that by federating talents, we will all succeed together. Deeptech is a way to take the path of new possibilities, in an urgent and necessary harmony with nature. The ardent desire to live in a better, gentler world never stopped motivating us. For tomorrow. For nature. For us. "

Tomorrow

The FinX thruster is made up of several parts. It does not contain a crankshaft, a reduction gear, nor a rotating joint. Only the membrane and the magnets in direct contact with it oscillate. No need for gasoline or oil. The results: no smell, no oil stains, no fuel or exhaust gases released into the water. The life of the membrane is guaranteed for 2 years and can be replaced in a few minutes.
BaseX is the think tank for FinX, launched in Spring 2020, in the midst of the health crisis. Through this initiative, we give a voice to personalities who are committed to work for a better world. Through regular interviews published on our networks, engineers, sailors, artists, politicians, philosophers (etc.) address major societal topics (energy transition, transport, biomimicry, etc.) and testify on their way of acting, offering a more lenient future, in harmony with nature.
BaseX is the desire to raise awareness by echoing the growing forest. It is also the desire to steer FinX on its path for a nautical and maritime revolution. FinX is entering a sector that is absolutely crucial for the future. BaseX, by surrounding itself with renowned and cutting-edge personalities, can allow FinX to refine its vision. BaseX carries the message of biomimicry as a response to planetary issues, emphasizing that humans are nature, and that everything is interdependent.
BaseX is a virtuous think tank, without being a media. Interviews are often detailed. Savoir pour Agir is the first BaseX book, to be published in 2021, built as a collection of interviews.
FinX wishes to make BaseX grow, to eventually become FinX’s foundation.
Everyone working for the common good is welcome to join the conversation. All talents from all sectors can act for tomorrow. We need anyone willing to act for a more sustainable tomorrow.
