I would like to welcome you to the welcoming of the Rainbow Warrior, She is one of a kind. She is the first ship designed and built specifically for Greenpeace. We would like to welcome her with a flotilla and are inviting you to join us in this.
A fast and reliable vessel
The new Rainbow Warrior is as fast as many industrial vessels, with action
A base for science boats that can be deployed in minutes – even in waves up to 3.5 metres high. Her helicopter landing pad means we can deploy a vital eye in the sky, enabling us to spot illegal fishing operations and shipments of illegal wood.
The ship can carry specialised equipment up to 8 tonnes in weight. It’s designed so that scientists can work on board. By supporting original scientific research we help build understanding of what is happening to our planet’s ecosystems.
A floating communications hub
The on-board satellite communications system – featuring a built-in satellite uplink – means the new Rainbow Warrior is able to stream live footage from the scene of environmental crimes direct to the world’s media.

LOCATION: At the pilot station 4 miles from the Harbour entrance (2 miles north of Green Point)
“She is an icon of non-violent direct action and a beacon of hope for millions of people around the world.”Kumi Naidoo, Greenpeace International’s Executive Director.
