Ocean Starr Supports Research Team in Pacific Trash Gyre
Summer 2015 – Stabbert Maritime’s Research Vessel (R/V) OCEAN STARR worked with The Ocean CleanUp group based out of the Netherlands to develop technology to clean the oceans of the plastic debris that is accumulating. Working with Nor Eastern Trawl Systems, Ocean Services developed specialized trawling nets that were used in the recent research expedition in the Great Pacific Gyre, a location about half way between San Diego and Hawaii. Findings from this expedition are being used to assess the size and mass distribution of the debris in the gyre.

Stabbert Yacht and Ship Scraps Problematic Derelicts
During the summer of 2012, two infamous vessels were in the Seattle area news; the Deep Sea and the Cactus. Both vessels made front page news in the Seattle Times representing the growing problem of derelict vessels in Washington State. This summer the Deep Sea caught fire and sank. At considerable expense to the taxpayers of Washington, the boat was raised by Global Diving and towed to Stabbert Yacht and Ship (SYS) by Global Diving for scrapping. The Cactus, after a career in the Coast Guard and private ownership became derelict in Puget Sound where she collected junk and even broke free several times. Again, Washington State came to the rescue having the boat moved and then scrapped at our shipyard in Ballard. Attached photos copyright The Seattle Times 2012.
SYS Delivers Multi-beam Sonar System
Stabbert Yacht and Ship recently fabricated a state-of-the-art sonar array housing and control van for RESON Corp. This system will be used for oceanographic research mapping and surveying the ocean floor. SYS worked with our client’s engineers to deliver the system that can be fit to various vessels and the entire system can be stored and shipped in its own control center.
