Arctic Research or Supply Vessel now available at WC Canada

We can now offer a strong vessel that was built and operated for the Canadian Coast Guard. The ship is ideal for Arctic/antarctic Expeditions or conversion to expeditionary cruiser or Exploreryacht, i.e. for Alaska/Greenland/Iceland/Spitzbergen adventure cruises. The ship was laid up several years ago professionally with all gear functioning. She is still in good condition but will need a full re-activation effort, therefore comes at a bargain price of only: USD$ 250,000 - 'as is where is' near Vancouver, BC, Canada.
