The 112' Steel Passenger Research Vessel, Enhydra, formerly known as the Niagara Clipper, represents a cutting-edge maritime exploration platform designed to facilitate scientific research and accommodate passengers. With its sturdy steel construction, the vessel is well-equipped to navigate a variety of marine environments, ensuring both safety and stability during research missions. Enhydra boasts a length of 112 feet, providing ample space for scientific equipment, laboratories, and comfortable accommodations for passengers interested in participating in research activities.

Originally named the Niagara Clipper, the vessel underwent a transformation and was rebranded as Enhydra, aligning with its focus on research and environmental exploration. This shift underscores the vessel's commitment to advancing marine science and fostering educational opportunities.

In 2022, the Enhydra secured funding from the state of California to undergo a comprehensive repowering initiative. This project involved the installation of two new engines and two generators, a crucial step to ensure compliance with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Type 3 Regulations. By upgrading its propulsion system and power generation capabilities, Enhydra not only meets the current regulatory standards but also positions herself as a technologically advanced vessel ready to navigate evolving environmental regulations in the future.

The repowering efforts underscore Enhydra's commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. By adhering to CARB Type 3 Regulations, the vessel minimizes its carbon footprint and contributes to the broader goal of reducing emissions in the maritime industry. This strategic investment in compliance not only enhances the vessel's environmental credentials but also reflects a forward-looking approach, ensuring that Enhydra remains at the forefront of regulatory requirements, making her a reliable and environmentally conscious player in the maritime sector for years to come.
