Things you probably didn’t know

USCGC Healy is a US Coast Guard icebreaking/research vessel, and is the only ship of her class. 21 feet longer than the Polar Class icebreakers Polar Star and Polar Sea, the Healy is currently the largest vessel that is operated by the Coast Guard.

The Healy’s research labs and accommodations designed for long term deployments make this an ideal platform for conducting research in the polar regions.
