The International Seakeepers Society
Back in February at the 2018 Miami Boat Show, new recruit (at the time) to The International Seakeepers Society, Tony Gilbert broke down exactly what they do and why they do it.
"we facilitate marine research and conservation efforts by linking the yacht owners with researchers and scientists that need to go and do field research."
The elevator pitch - so we facilitate marine research and conservation efforts by linking the yacht owners with researchers and scientists that need to go and do field research. And what we do is we save about 90% of their budget because usually all their money has to go to chartering boats to go out there and do what they gotta do. So, we say, here take this boat for free, you know, maybe they'll pay for fuel, but for the most part we're just trying to donate time on yachts for them to go out and do what they have to do. And it's really important research most of the time.
