About the RV Braveheart - The RV Braveheart has been the subject of intense interest lately with her recent voyages to South Sandwich and South Georgia and soon to be underway to Heard Island. I thought my readers might find it interesting to learn a little bit more about this ship and her amazingly dedicated crew.

The Braveheart was constructed in Japan for the Japanese Government as a fisheries research vessel. She is 39 meters in length and has an all steel hull. The Braveheart has a massive 1200 HP Niigata engine and a single screw (propeller).

The Braveheart carries a crew of six and twelve passengers. She also carries two smaller boats, a jet boat and a rigid inflatable boat (RIB).

The Braveheart has a crane on the rear deck and a second crane on the second deck. She is a working boat, built not for comfort or speed but for getting there and back. Safety is the most important concept on the Braveheart.
