Pelican 1 is an iconic vessel designed and built specifically for expeditions, marine research and education and has been operating very successfully in this manner since launched. She is being offered as either a going concern with existing contracts and relationships within Australia, but would be just at home for similar usage further afield, such as New Zealand or the Pacific Islands (where she has operated previously). Pelican was designed by her current owners with naval architect Murray Isles and built by Pelican Expeditions for their own use, under the supervision of Marine Safety Victoria. No expense or trouble has been spared. She is a composite construction using only the best materials, West system epoxy resin, cedar planked hulls and end-grain balsa superstructure. She is designed to be maintained and repaired independently of any facilities for long periods and to have back up equipment for every important system on board. She is fast under sail, efficient under engines, and has proven herself on numerous occasions in storm conditions as a safe reliable platform. Every aspect of her design is calculated to maximize safety, flexibility and comfort at sea. Her original survey was 1B-25, 1C-45, 1D-65 persons including crew. Current survey is 2B-18, 1C-33, 1D-45 but she can immediately be returned to her original survey with addition of required safety equipment. Re-surveyed to 1A status is possible but for all purposes to date this has been unnecessary.
