Three years ago, we travelled and surfed our way through Middle and South America for seven months. Upon resuming our lives in Hamburg, Mareen founded her ethical swimwear line, MYMARINI, and William went back to working as a mechanical engineer. As time went on, our desire to go on another adventure became impossible to ignore and thus we made a life-changing decision.
In the spring of 2015, a 16-year-old motorhome basically fell into our laps by chance and we ended up buying it although it was much larger than what we had originally been looking for. After a few first trips to Denmark, France and Spain, it proved to be the best home on wheels we could have found! Little did we know then what other great adventures we would embark on in the future – such as this adventure that is just beginning.
MYMARINI was founded in 2013 by Mareen, and many crazy things have happened in the last three years. One of these crazy things is William quitting his job as an engineer and us choosing to move forward with the swimwear line together… And take a step away from the fast paced world we have been living in to live a more conscious and moderate life. As this new life begins now in our home on wheels, we are also faced with new challenges. How do we run a successful business while always moving around and having limited space? What and how much do we really need to take with us?
From surfing we have learned that focusing and trusting can lead you to perfect wave. We want to find out how much of this experience we can use in our lives out of water.
Our daily work business is now finding beautiful places, perfect waves, snowy mountains, and delicious food. We will keep you posted on our search for new shops and concept stores and we invite you to join us on this journey as rolling seafarers!

We come from Hamburg, have an ethical swimwear line, and live in our mobile home – we are the Rolling Seafarers.
“Hamburg ist ein derber Beat und schön und schmuddelig.
Und der Hafen der ist das Herz, die Bassline
Fuck Internet, wir war’n schon immer mit der Welt eins.
International, weite Seen und weiter Horizont,
in Deutschland sind wir damit fast allein wie Robinson”
