LADY CHEBUCTO is a unique offering. She was built for the Canadian government as a fisheries patrol vessel with a duty range that included the Arctic Circle. She remained in active service through 1998. A significant refit was completed in 1988 which addressed every area of the vessel excepting the Fairbanks Morse main engines, which were later overhauled in 1997. During the 1988 refit, the deckhouse and superstructure were removed and replaced, the entire vessel was rewired and three new Cat generators were installed, all asbestos was removed and all coatings were replaced upon clean steel.

She would serve very well as a research vessel with few, if any modifications.

As a "shadow" or support vessel, LADY CHEBUCTO may require some deck modifications to create additional helicopter and/or small yacht storage space.

She is a very suitable candidate for yacht conversion. Preliminary conversion studies were conducted on site by Tom Fexas Associates with the conclusion that the current stability profile would support a much larger superstructure. In addition, it is expected that the propulsion system is sufficiently reliable to provide decades of servicce. The electrical and generator system was replaced in 1988 and offers appropriate reserve capacity for a conversion scenario.

Of specific importance is the vessel's speed capability: in keeping with her original design brief, she was charged with enforcement of fisheries regulations. Her logs note 550 successful interdictions. She has operated at sustained speeds of 17.5 knots while still maintaining suitable reserve power.

Maintenance currently underway includes the painting of decks and deckhouse. Vessel was last dry-docked in Spring of 2008, bottom coatings were renewed. Her owner currently lives aboard.
