The vessel is equipped with wet and dry laboratory space, and features a global positioning system, a digital fathometer and a continuously recording suite of sensors that measure temperature, salinity and other water properties.

"Watermen and scientists alike have the ability to take advantage of this ideal opportunity to purchase a vessel at competitive prices."
