IMO : 8858790

Build : 1981 by Azow Shipyard -Mariupol in Ukraine, nr ?? as Orbita

The owners call this little vessel a “diving support, pleasure and dwelling craft”, well, I don’t know where the pleasure bit comes in but I guess that’s the part where you actually dive away from it. And as for the dwelling….being inside at least shields you from looking at the exterior of this little ugly vessel. This has been a marine research vessel from the start but a few years ago she was converted to her present state. The cabin just aft of the bridge has been added in her early years…very smoothly incorporated in the original design I must say.

I don’t know about you but if I was in the market to buy a ship to live on (permanent or for holidays) then I would actually look for a vessel that was at least a little bit pleasing to the eye. Also makes you more welcome in marina’s and that kind of places.
