MNG Flattery

Custom 171' Research Ship

Custom Research Ship 

MNG Flattery IS A VERY SOLID, ECONOMICAL STEEL SHIP THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY ABS CERTIFIED FOR CHARTERS UP TO 18 PASSENGERS. She just came out of 6-month shipyard period and then transited 8,000 nm from Seattle to Singapore, where she awaits a new owner. Recent 5 year ABS/SOLAS surveys show her to have a clean Bill of Health. Originally built by the U.S. Navy for global service in extreme weather, she is currently configured for security duty with ample options for lots of alternative cruising styles. MNG Flattery can be configured to be a fabulous “under the radar” world cruising platform for family, friends and company.

MNG Flattery, ex U.S. Navy and NOAA David Starr Jordan, has been a work horse for NOAA and science. So far she has spent an estimated 8,949 days at sea and sailed more than 1.3 million miles. Researchers aboard the vessel measured and weighed 1,000 sea turtles, took 27,000 photographs using remotely operated vehicles (ROVS), and conducted 27,000 oceanographic sampling casts, 22,000 plankton tows and 4,700 fish trawls. The ship has participated in expeditions extending from ALASKA to Peru and the Galapagos Islands. This past year, Ocean Starr was chartered to a private non­profit studying the Pacific gyre (floating plastic), base­lining and recording this danger to our oceans.

MNG Flattery should be seriously considered by the hard core adventurists. Currently located in Singapore, she can be relocated for new owner to any ocean on the planet.

NOAA History

Custom Expedition Vessel

NOAA History

Built in Sturgeon Bay, Wis., in 1964 and commissioned in 1966, the vessel was designed speciScally to conduct research in tropical and temperate waters. The ship’s operational area included the U.S. West Coast and eastern Tropical PaciSc,

where researchers investigated seasonal variations in ocean temperature, currents and salinity and assessed the status of marine life.

The San Diego, Calif.based ship collected hydrographic and biological data on the California Current System during California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CalCOFI) research cruises. During this project, researchers studied the marine environment oW the coast of California, the management of its living resources, and monitored the indicators of El Niño and climate change with quarterly cruises oW southern and central California.

NOAA Ship David Starr Jordan also played an important role in yellow Sn tuna Sshery research that led to a major reduction in dolphin mortalities.

Data collected on the Jordan were critical in supporting the “dolphinsafe” tuna campaign and labeling requirements.

“The David Starr Jordan was a workhorse for more than 40 years, supporting the management of Ssh, marine mammals and sea turtles,” said Steve Murawski, Ph.D., NOAA’s chief scientist for Ssheries. “We celebrate the crew, scientists and vessel as we look to the future.”

NOAA Ship David Starr Jordan was a Toating laboratory equipped with temperaturecontrolled aquaria and live specimen wells, walkin freezer, dark room, data processing laboratory, and an underwater observation chamber in the bow and port side for studying Ssh behavior at sea. The ship was also equipped with a helicopter pad to support aerial observations and photo survey missions. The ship’s twin 500horsepower diesel engines give the ship a 12knot cruising speed.

The ship is named after David Starr Jordan (18511931), one of the best known naturalists and educators of his time. He wrote more than 50 books and published over 600 scientiSc papers on topics ranging from ichthyology (the branch of zoology dealing with Ssh) to advancing world peace. In 1879, Jordan became president of Indiana University and was selected in 1891 as the Srst president of Stanford University. Jordan was a member of the California State Fish Commission, and his investigations of the exploitation of the salmon and fur seal populations helped save these species.

NOAA’s mission is to understand and predict changes in the Earth's environment, from the depths of the ocean to the surface of the sun, and to conserve and manage our coastal and marine resources.
