Raincoast’s Research Vessel
Our dedicated research vessel, Achiever, is a coast guard certified 70 ft, steel hulled sloop that operates seven months a year on the BC coast. The boat can be fit to provide observer platforms, oceanographic equipment, freezer space, and other research specific requirements. It can accommodate up to 10 people and has substantial water and fuel capacity. We undertake our own research programs and we partner with other research organizations such as the Institute of Ocean Sciences, the University of British Columbia, and Simon Fraser University.
