Both veteran NOAA oceanographic research vessels Ka’imimoana and the McArthur have been sold to Sabbart Maritime in Seattle and are destined for Seattle. Reports say Sabbart will renovate and then charter them to various oceanographic institutions worldwide.

The vessels are expected to be eventually replaced with a different class of vessels which can accommodate a wider range of oceanographic research missions. The NOAA docks are expected to remain busy due to a number of ocean research institutions that routinely direct their vessels in for supplies along with conducting crew and scientific entourage change-overs.
