As a scientific organisation operating from a sustainable research vessel, we want to help researchers access data, solving important challenges.
The sailboat Research Vessel (R/V) we are imagining will be able to host up to 4-6 scientists and 3-4 crew, with fuel, food and water to be safely at sea for up to 3 weeks without requiring being in a port for resupply.
Aboard facilities will include comfortable berths, a dry lab with computer and IT system for data transfer and storage, including backup and connectivity. It will also include a wet lab for specimen observation and storage, with ample room for your specific activities.
The R/V will have facilitated viewing and communication between different parts of the ship so your work can be done safely in coordination with our skipper, science manager and expedition director.
A large rear deck with facilitated water entry will allow for deployment of instruments, including for divers and surface work with devices.
Low emissions, silent, robust aluminium build, designed for coastal & open ocean sailing, with a lifting keel for shallow operations is what we have in mind.
We will work with you to obtain additional equipment as necessary and organize specific expedition logistics.
