Oceanographic Research Vessel for sale

We can now offer exclusively an ex.NOAA research vessel in good condition and now well priced ($1.9m).

The OCEAN STARR provides a broad range of scientific research capabilities with temperature-controlled aquaria and live specimen wells, walk-in freezer, dark room, data processing laboratory, and an underwater observation chamber in the bow and port side for studying fish behavior at sea. She has been used for many expeditions such as the ‘Mega Expedition’ with The Ocean Cleanup in August 2015 to observe the swirling Pacific garbage patch. A team of 15 international scientists was on board to develop techniques to remove the plastic from our oceans. Also last year she went to a whale research expedition to conduct a population survey of the Vaquita in the Upper Gulf of California, a species endemic to the region that is on the verge of extinction.
