It's coming! Our very own research vessel!

So we are really excited about this. To further our research capabilities at the Maru we have started constructing our own research vessel!  It will be fully equipped with a small laboratory, dive compressor and scuba gear, kitchen, lounge, solar electricity and beds for 8 researchers.  There are so many unexplored places in Lake Malawi, particularly in the north, and with this new boat we will be able to comfortably and afford-ably visit them like no one has!  As you can see from the picture it is still very much under construction but we hope to have our first researchers, interns, and volunteers move in in 2 months time.  Watch this space as we will be updating regularly with new pictures.
