Research vessel Sabella arriving at its home port Helsingborg

The R/V Sabella arriving at its home port yesterday.

The research vessel Sabella (16.35 m x 4.48 m) was built in Mandal, Norway, in 1968 as a trawler. The same year, the ship - which was named Carolina - was acquired by the Lund University for use as a research vessel. In 1982 - 1989 Carolina was owned and operated by the Swedish Geological Survey.

The city of Helsingborg bought the ship in 1989, and renamed it Sabella. Since 1993 Sabella has been privately owned, but connected with the marine biology education programme of the Lund University, Campus Helsingborg. Sabella also offers tours to school classes and others interested in the marine environment.
