This vessel is 6 times the tonnage of the Pacific Link and it’s value was estimated to be $11million. It has been a scientific research and supply vessel in Antarctica & has been cared for well. The ship is sailing from Tasmania, Australia, north up to Townsville, Australia. She should arrive on or about March 24th!

Phase 1 of the financial need for this vessel to become ours was $400,000 USD. As of Friday March 17th, we have seen $400,000 USD committed towards this goal. Thank you for standing with us!
Phase 2 will be to re task her from a science & research vessel to a floating hospital. We will be needing $500,000 for the refit this coming fall. Would you consider partnering with us to make the necessary changes?
