Research ship Yantar is the lead Project 22010 oceanographic vessel developed by Almaz Central Design Bureau.

According to the contract, the ship is to be delivered in 2013.

The hull of Yantar has been completely shaped; most of general-purpose equipment, rudder propellers, and lateral thrusters have been installed. Shipwrights continue the construction of the superstructure and fitting of internal equipment.

Although moving of the 2,000-ton hull took less than an hour, it needed thorough preparation. The hull was placed at a pre-launch position to be put afloat in Aug 2012.
