Vessel Specifications

ANGARI Foundation owns and operates a 65-foot research vessel, which serves as an ideal platform for marine science research. The vessel is outfitted with indoor and outdoor workspaces and optimally set up for SCUBA diving. R/V ANGARI is well equipped for a variety of oceanographic research needs, and the vessel’s multipurpose workspaces leave plenty of room for custom setup and organization of personal gear and equipment. The research vessel ANGARI is available for charter to science and film teams for day and overnight research expeditions. 

R/V ANGARI currently operates along the U.S. East Coast, the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas, the Gulf of Mexico and the northern Caribbean.
