Piratas do Amor
Meet Raissa and Christof, the hearts and minds behind Piratas do Amor. Launched in 2018, their sailing society orchestrates unforgettable sea voyages that blend their shared love for the ocean, the magic of genuine connections, and life-altering experiences. While they come from very different backgrounds, Brazil and Liechtenstein, they possess surprisingly congruent values. Navigating the challenges of their (open) relationship aboard a boat, they continuously re-invent and shape their vision of the world. Inspired by their unique "pirate code", they live as embodiments of the change they envision, crafting each journey as a tale of love, freedom, and evolution. Join us as we set sail on their intriguing tale.
A boat is seen as a symbol of unbridled freedom, but it can ironically be one of the most unfree places.So, you identify as "pirates." Is that just a catchy title, or is it a mantle you wear with pride? RAISSA: For us, adopting the term "pirates" is more than just a quirky name. It speaks volumes about our beliefs, our ethos. 'Piratas do Amor,' which means 'Pirates of Love' in Portuguese, truly resonates with our spirit. During the golden age of piracy in the late 16th century, pirates represented freedom amidst an oppressive world. Despite their notorious reputation, they were pioneers of certain progressive ideas – equality, democracy, and even a form of social security. The narrative about them has been largely shaped by those in power, but pirates were more than just rogues. They were strategic, with a community-driven approach that emphasized equality and unity. Their spirit of rebellion, their artistic expressions and the way they lived in a horizontal social community is what inspired us in shaping our culture of beliefs for Pirates do Amor.
