MY Farley Mowat is a cutter owned and operated by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. She is being used in their direct action campaigns against whaling and against illegal fisheries activities.
In January 2015, Sea Shepherd purchased two recently[when?] decommissioned Island-class patrol boats from the United States Coast Guard, capable of a top speed of 30 knots (56 km/h; 35 mph). They were USCGC Block Island and USCGC Pea Island, and were renamed MY Jules Verne and MY Farley Mowat, respectively. The Jules Verne was later renamed the MV John Paul DeJoria after Sea shepherd supporter John Paul DeJoria. They were joined by another ex-USCG island class cutter in December 2017, the MV Sharpie.
