50m Research and Expedition Vessel
On offer is a very well maintained research and survey vessel that was used for hydrographic surveys mainly in the North Sea. Always government owned she had an extensive maintenance schedule throughout her life. With her large accommodation she represents good potential for conversion to an expeditionary cruiser. As a government vessel she was never classed under a civil society but we can arrange class with BV or similar as she is very well designed and built for service in the North Sea.
