Looking spectacular at the wharf!

Check out the photo of Australia’s new Marine National Facility research vessel, Investigator, from the port side.

I wonder where they took this photo from?

  1. This ship is absolutely beautiful. It seems like a ship like this is really sturdy and would be perfect for the military. I wonder how much it would cost to build a ship like this. I know that well built ships like this tend to be really expensive to make, but it is definitely worth it.

      Hello Hedley

      In 2009 the Australian Government allocated $120 million to build Investigator and she was delivered on budget in late 2014.

    The Investigator is simply one beautiful ship. It’s great that there is funding for a research vessel like this.

    Hi Sarah, Dale Crisp here, specialist maritime journalist and writer. Would it be possible to get a hi-res version of this pic – or any of INVESTIGATOR on sea trials – to use in the next edition of the Nautical Association of Australia (www.nautical.asn.au) journal The Log?

    Most grateful for any help.

    Kind regards
    Dale Crisp

    PS: Pleased if you could keep us up to date on progress with the SS book, too
