This week, we review vessels in the marine research, training, and survey sectors entering service. These include survey workboats for government agencies in the US and Russia, a modernised training vessel for a Western Australian owner, a hybrid research vessel for an American university, and newbuild training vessels for operation in France and Norway.

Marine Research • Maritime Training • Maritime Archaeology

The French and Norwegian vessels are some of the more notable inclusions in this week’s lineup. In addition to being used for training purposes, they will also perform other roles such as ocean research and fishing. This indicates the versatility of some of the vessels in this sector, allowing operators to do more without necessarily acquiring more assets.
