Greenpeace has baptized a new Rainbow Warrior boat to help in its environmental campaign efforts.
Rainbow Warrior III was designed by a Dutch naval architectural firm and constructed in Germany, according to a blog post on the Greenpeace Web site.
The boat cost more than $30 million to make, and the money came from more than 100,000 donations, the Agence France-Presse reported.
It replaces its predecessor, Rainbow Warrior II, which has been retired and will serve as a hospital ship in Bangladesh, The Associated Press reported.
The new Rainbow Warrior is the perfect ship with which to navigate the perfect storm of ecological, economic and democratic crises lashing our world, Greenpeace International executive director Kumi Naidoo said, the AFP reported.
The new boat has a water desalination system, a helicopter pad, and inflatable boats, The Miami Herald reported.
It also has a campaign room, a conference room, and high-speed broadband, Greenpeace wrote on their Web site blog.
She is built to last for fifty years, and is a promise to our supporters that we will keep up the struggle to one day see a sustainable world where all of us can live in peace, Greenpeace worker Harmony Lambert blogged on the organization's Web site.
Here are photos of the new boat, as well as photos of older Greenpeace vessels.
