Reimagined as the ultimate support vessel, UMBRA underwent an extensive refit that left no piece of her untouched. A complete paint job and new garage are the most visible of the additions but by far not the only ones. The upgrades were done with the crew and performance in mind. Creating not just a beautiful vessel but a usable one as well.
UMBRA’s ample deck space, large garage, and heavy duty crane allow her to carry a wide offering of tenders and toys including two Triton submarines (available for purchase seperately). She also features a full dive department with dive compressor, deck workshop in the air conditioned garage, and a 7m x 2m storage mezzanine.
UMBRA sleeps 19 crew in seven cabins consisting of a two four berth cabins, 2 twin cabins, one triple cabin and separate cabins for the captain and chief engineer each with a large double beds, all with en-suite shower facilities. The galley, crew mess, walk-in refrigerator and freezer are located on the lower decks. All cabins feature new phone system and apple TVs. The IT system received a complete renewal Mid 2019 providing wired and WIFI connectivity throughout the vessel. A new bridge screen switching system was also added creating mission changeable informational set-ups on the helm area.
Power comes from (4x) MTU 1,320hp diesel engines and 3 generators allowing an excess range of 4,500 nautical miles. For underway and anchored comfort she is also fitted with Quantum zero speed stabilizers.
Donating your vessel can immediately eliminate your ownership cost and considerably reduce your income tax burden. Besides convenience being the primary incentive, many donors express their desire to further philanthropic goals by contributing to global ocean issues. Yacht donations go towards scientific expeditions, citizen science, and educational outreach events. SeaKeepers recommends that yacht/boat owners considering making a donation first consult their tax advisor.
