UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography’s research vessel, the R/V Savannah, is a platform for scientific research and education along the East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico. The ship is a member of the University-National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS), the nation’s academic research fleet, and is the only such vessel between Miami and Delaware. The R/V Savannah is used by UGA scientists as well as national and international researchers, with operations primarily supported through federally funded research. Users pay a day rate that provides funds for operations and maintenance of the vessel. The R/V Savannah typically spends 150 days at sea each year on research and education missions.
