About the boat

It was designed to support a wide range of oceanographic and fisheries research, which is the core activity of the Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries. It is equipped with four hydraulic winches, a side-moving crane and a collapsible hydraulic crane, three laboratories (wet, dry, and microbiological laboratory), and a cabin for electronics. There are 6 crew members on board, and it is possible to accommodate up to 18 researchers at the same time. The ship’s autonomy during cruising is 2000 Nm at a cruising speed of 11.8 knots.

Due to the increase in the number and scope of research in the Adriatic Sea, there was a need for a larger, more modern, and better-equipped research vessel. In 2007, with the support of the Ministries of Science, Education, and Sports, the development of project documentation for the new ship began. The project of the general plan of the ship was made by B.Sc. Branko Vuković, taking into account the special requirements of the Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries, the development of the project was done by the Shipping Institute from Zagreb, and the construction and equipment of the ship were carried out by the Shipyard of Special Objects from Split (B.S.O). The institute officially took over the ship on May 10, 2009.

The ship is named BIOS DVA after the Greek word Bios/βίος meaning life, and the word DVA to distinguish it from its predecessor I/B BIOS which for 56 years (1953-2009) faithfully served the Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries for various research of the Adriatic Sea.
