304 Aerojet-General Ex Oceanographer 1966 Details:

M/Y Sahara (formerly: ‘Protector’ and before that: ‘Oceanographer’) was built by the Gibbs-Jacksonville Shipyard under contract with Aerojet General for the US government. It would eventually be the flagship of the NOAA fleet and travel more than 2 million miles through all of the earth’s oceans during her 30 years of service as a research ship.
Sahara was decommissioned in 1996. A $50 million superyacht conversion was started a few years ago but circumstances changed and now a new owner can pick up this gorgeous ship along with the in-progress works and choose their own plan for completion.
Several designs have been drawn depicting her proposed conversion into an exquisite global luxury yacht / small cruise ship. Contact the broker to explore options for the development of the vessel into a seagoing hotel or a bespoke luxury superyacht. Various intriguing superstructure design plans and GA drawings are available.
Sahara is a beautiful vessel, with excellent bones. The boat was built to withstand the toughest seas for her scientist crew. She was built to the most rigorous ‘ice class’ standards and reproducing her would likely cost between two and three hundred million dollars today. This translates to an enormous value for a discerning buyer who wants to shave several million dollars and many months off the process of the construction of a beautiful and rugged expedition vessel.
