The Futuristic Bridget Bardot Arrived in Halifax Friday Morning. The vessel is owned by the Sea Shepard Conservation society. I covered a brief history of the vessel, and Sea Shepard in this Herald Column.
Originally named Cable and Wireless Adventurer she was built for the purpose of circumnavigating the world in less than 80 days. This was successfully accomplished in July 1998 in 74 days, 20 hours, 58 minutes. Sea Shepard acquired the vessel in 2010. The 114′ long trimaran is powered by two 500hp engines, and has a top speed of 50km/h.
Sea Shepard has a Halifax Chapter, who can be found on Facebook
