Meet Our Vessel
A floating lab
We use a Hewescraft 220 Ocean Pro for our research and adventures. This vessel has set the Pacific Northwest standard because of its durabilty, capability, 100 gallon fuel tank, spacious deck, safety, and enhanced performance. It is powered by a 200 horsepower Yamaha fuel injected outboard engine, which easily helps us sprint at 40 knots and cruise efficiently and comfortably at 30 knots. The Yamaha 15 HP kicker is tied to the aft steering station and is fully capable as our redundant backup power source. Our enclosed cabin is warm and roomy, with seats for 6 people. There is an emergency toilet and curtain available, if necessary.
We can't wait to get you onboard!
