This vessel is made for long range expeditions. It was once a private yacht made to sail the open waters. In 1991 it was bought and turned into a research vessel. This boat was used to track the migration patterns and study whales and has been recorded on several documentaries for TV. It went on a five and half year journey around the world. It is a beautiful boat that has always been maintained. There is ample amount of room on deck with its eighty foot deck length. It has sleeping capacity for eight guest and four crew members.

This vessel has a reverse osmosis machine on board to make fresh water for those long trips at sea.
