OCEAN STARR is a U.S.- built and U.S.-flagged former NOAA research ship that is in ABS-class and USCG-inspected for 33 persons onboard. It has everything needed for long endurance at sea, including walk-in freezers and refrigerators, plus commercial fishing nets to augment food stores.

Recent 5 year ABS/SOLAS surveys show her to be in ready-to-go-to-sea condition. She has a range of 10,000 miles and with water-makers and commercial fishing capabilities she can stay at sea for many weeks, or even months.  OCEAN STARR can be configured to be a fabulous “under the radar” world cruising platform for family, friends and company.

Ocean Starr, ex David Starr Jordan, has been a work horse for NOAA and science. So far she has spent an estimated 8,949 days at sea and sailed more than 1.3 million miles. Researchers aboard the vessel measured and weighed 1,000 sea turtles, took 27,000 photographs using remotely operated vehicles (ROVS), and conducted 27,000 oceanographic sampling casts, 22,000 plankton tows and 4,700 fish trawls. The ship has participated in expeditions extending from ALASKA to Peru and the Galapagos Islands. This past year, Ocean Starr was chartered to a private non­profit studying the Pacific gyre (floating plastic), base­lining and recording this danger to our oceans.

OCEAN STARR should be seriously considered by the hard core adventurists.

Vessel is in Lake Union in Seattle and easy to see.
