Global Class

The Global Class multidisciplinary research vessel provides a high endurance research platform capable of operating worldwide in seasonal first year ice for 300 days per year.

It offers low underwater radiated noise performance, a unique hull form for low bubble sweepdown with low resistance, and dynamic positioning to Sea State 5. The design is optimized for long-endurance cruises with single staterooms and high bandwidth data transfer. The comprehensive science systems make it the most capable of all research vessel classes.


Each of our vessel concept designs is fully customizable. Contact us to learn more and find out how this design can be adapted to meet the demands of your operation.
