The above catamaran is a special research vessel intended for interdisciplinary (biological, chemical, physical and geological) research of Baltic environment and nature. Apart from laboratories, observatories and a seminar room will be on it for classes for students of oceanography and other departments. The board will accommodate up to 20 persons
Thanks to the special scientific equipment “Oceanograf” will be one of the most modern vessels with Polish flag. Due to the wide range of research that will be carried out, it will combine functions of different types of vessels.
The catamaran is 49.5 m long and 14 m wide and can reach speed of 12 knots. Double-hulled construction minimizes the angle of tilt, what is especially important during research at the sea because every unintended movement of the vessel can interfere with measurements.
