The motorboat “Blue Dream” and the modular barge “GEO1”.

"Blue Dream"

A vessel owned by GeoPolaris srl, with certification of suitability for special services for use on its own, is equipped with high precision instruments.

Supplied with scientific high-technology instruments, it is ideal for performing bathymetric, sedimentological, geophysical, geo-morphological, magnetometric, and environmental surveys and monitoring coastal and open marine waters.

The vessel is equipped with an aft portal (with R.I.Na. approval) that allows the equipment to be placed in the sea and recovered in full safety.

Its reduced dimensions and high manoeuvrability facilitate use in port areas, causing a very low impact on maritime traffic.
