One-Stop-Shop for Floating and Special Economic Zone Projects.
A sustainable future can be achieved on water. But at Seaphia we know that before we can have floating cities, we have to start with specific business cases. Short and medium-term floating developments based on on-the-water-real-estate and blue technologies and with –and without– the right special regulatory framework provide the way forward.
Our business development services target tomorrow’s needs with engineering and legal tools that are at hand. We bring together a unique skill set and experience that knows, better than anyone, the political, economic, environmental, social and legal complexity of floating projects.
Let us explain in simple terms what makes us unique

A Word By Our CEO
Seaphia is interested in floating cities because we see the yearly growth of floating building initiatives; from floating homes to floating cities. We acknowledge that this is a growing tendency that cannot be overlooked, and believe in the value of the various urban, demographic, and climate reasons that have made this such a rich, growing space. Therefore, at Seaphia we acknowledge that developing projects in an integrated fashion can provide informed, multi-stakeholder urgent solutions, built from the ground up, to a future in the making.
Dr. Nathalie Mezza-Garcia
Seaphia is the result of 5 years strategizing how to best plan and execute innovative floating projects. After completing a PhD on creating floating special economic zones governed using blockchain technologies in the UK, the company's founder saw the need for a one-stop-shop service provider for this growing industry.
From there that we understand the social, environmental, political, legal and economic complexity of floating and new Zone developments better than anyone. Today, Seaphia connects project developers, zones and marinas to floating architects/engineers and innovative legal teams.
