Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is excited to unveil the new design of our vessel, the M/V Farley Mowat! The former U.S. Coast Guard cutter, one of two January 2015 additions to the Sea Shepherd fleet including the M/V Jules Verne, has been given a new look, painted in white with black lettering and details, the Jolly Roger logo for which Sea Shepherd is well known around the world, and the name “Farley Mowat” proudly displayed on its hull. See the Farley’s brand new look to the right!

The new Farley Mowat replaces the original Farley Mowat vessel that Sea Shepherd purchased in 1997 and retired in 2008. The new vessel was purchased with a bequest left to Sea Shepherd by longtime friend, Sea Shepherd International Chair and famed Canadian writer and environmentalist, Farley Mowat, who passed away in 2014.

Prior to arriving in Tampa, the Farley Mowat was docked with the Jules Verne in Key West, where the vessels underwent initial repairs and preparations, and the crew welcomed supporters aboard for tours of the newest additions to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s ocean-defending fleet, which also includes research sailing vessel, the R/V Martin Sheen. Sea Shepherd thanks all who stopped by to meet our crew and show their support!

Our Crew Needs You! The Farley Mowat is now in dry dock in Tampa, Florida, where it is undergoing final preparations to head to sea. Our dedicated volunteer crew is now completing all repairs, gathering of supplies, and preparations needed to have the Farley fully equipped and ready to defend our clients!

But we couldn’t do what we do without you “onboard,” helping us get our ship in ship-shape!

When dry dock is complete, the Farley Mowat will depart Tampa, en route to a destination soon to be announced by Sea Shepherd, to defend imperiled ocean wildlife. Please stay tuned – and thank you, as always, for helping to get our ships on the frontlines to do what Sea Shepherd does best — protect ocean wildlife and habitats worldwide!
