Motor Yacht “Defiance” Participates in Water Sampling Study

View Motor Yacht DEFIANCE on Youtube
72′ Motor Yacht DEFIANCE is participating in our “water sampling” project. Leaving New York City, she will travel 1,114 nautical miles down the Atlantic Coast to Miami, Florida taking water samples each day to track water climate change. We are also offsetting her Carbon Footprint by tracking her fuel consumption.

Captain Sandy Yawn is a seasoned captain (having been on large yachts such as the 142′ LADY J) , she is committed to practicing her passion – by agreeing to assist us in taking a manual reading, recording her location and sending to Christopher Swain of One Healthy Ocean. “This is incredible knowledge that we gather – using portable equipment vs. hard wired into the hull like other yachts may have. The yacht is a perfect size to get into the inland waterways.” says One Healthy Ocean’s Christopher Swain.
