The MY Ocean Warrior is a cutter class vessel owned and operated by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as research/survey patrol vessel. She is being used in their direct action campaigns against whaling and against illegal fisheries activities.

Overview[edit]

On January 26, 2015, at the annual Goed Geld Gala (Good Money Gala)[7][8][9] in Amsterdam, Sea Shepherd received a donation of €8.3 million ($9.4 million) from the postcode lotteries in the Netherlands,[10] Sweden[11] and the United Kingdom[12][13] to purchase a new vessel for Sea Shepherd's submitted dream project "Stop Illegal Fishing in the Southern Ocean". The vessel was custom-built by Dutch ship builder Damen Group in Turkey,[14] with a final cost of $12 million.[1] This custom-built ship is a Damen Stan patrol vessel 50 m long and 9 m wide. She was laid down in 2015 and was launched in September 2016.[6][13]

Ocean Warrior has four engines, additional long-range fuel tanks, and a helicopter landing pad.[1] Her maiden voyage was part of Operation Nemesis in the Southern Ocean.
