M/V Synergy

The M/V Synergy, ex M/V Betsy, is a 63’ aluminum catamaran that was previously used as a pilot boat in San Diego. Her Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull (SWATH) design and side thrusters are considered to be ideal for scallop aquaculture research, which is why the Synergy is in Fanny Bay – she is being imported into Canada by Island Scallops and RKS Laboratories Ltd for long line research in Baynes Sound.
