We chartered a boat to use as a "base camp" for our team of four geologists working in the D'Entrecasteaux Islands. Our research involved mapping and collecting rock samples to determine the geologic and tectonic evolution of the region.

We needed to cover a lot of ground in a relatively short period of time. The experienced crew got us where we needed to go, provided safe accommodation and delicious meals.

As a result we were able to concentrate solely on accomplishing our research goals and had a very successful field season. I highly recommend using this boat for small research teams in need of efficient, reliable transport and accommodation while conducting research in Papua New Guinea.

Recommendation :

Dr. Dan A. Polhemus - National Museum of Natural History
Smithsonian Institution - Washington, DC

Turned out to be an excellent mobile base of operations for our biological research project in eastern New Guinea. Large enough to sleep six with comfort and allow onboard analysis of collections, yet compact enough to navigate twisting reef passages and narrow inlets, the vessel provided a perfect balance of comfort and practicality.
