Since its inception, the International SeaKeepers’ Society (ISKS) has worked to promote research and conservation of marine ecosystems. The recently introduced Scientific Vessel of Opportunity Program (SVOP) seeks to expand these efforts by encouraging scientists and the yachting community to work in partnership.
The International SeaKeepers Society is looking for a few good yachts for a good cause. The group, long associated with installation of ocean data gathering instruments on superyachts, has announced the creation of what it calls the Scientific Vessel of Opportunity yacht fleet. The program offers yacht owners and crew the opportunity to host leading scientists on vital research missions aboard their yachts.
