A classic long range expedition yacht..Must see!

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. Plenty of navigation equipment, and four fuel tanks plus a day tank with the capacity to carry almost 3,300 gallons of fuel on her. There is a satellite dome for communication as well as a full kitchen with refrigerator, freezer, stove top and oven. Two generators are located in the engine room. The first is a 13 kw and the second is a 22kw. This vessel is ready for an expedition around the world again.

ConditionThis boat has been well maintained while at sea and everything mechanical is fine tuned. The current captain has been with this vessel for years and knows every inch of this boat. All of the woodwork on the boat use to be varnished and kept up with regularly until it became a research vessel. Since then it was finished and then painted over, which could easily sanded and restored to its former glory. Certain areas have been rearranged for research studies. Part of the dinning area now has several work stations set up instead of seating. In the captains cabin there is ample amount of room that have since been used for scientific refrigeration storage, as seen in the pictures.
