New Mystic Cruises ship fitted with FarSounder FLS

(WARWICK, R.I.) — FarSounder’s forward-looking sonar (FLS) will be included on the new luxury expedition cruise vessel by Mystic Cruises, World Explorer. This latest technology in navigation and obstacle avoidance will be a welcome addition to this state-of-the-art vessel. 

World Explorer will embark on a variety of unique voyages. Its journeys will include exploring to the polar regions and many out-of-the-way places all around the world. This expedition ship will sail to places larger ships cannot navigate. Traveling to these unfamiliar parts of the ocean could often be risky. With FarSounder's 3D FLS installed, the crew has the latest technology aboard to mitigate these risks.

One of the ship's captains, Capt. Zakalashnnyuk, is looking forward to taking the helm on this "ultra well-equipped ship for expedition and exploring style cruises. With the latest and more advanced equipment that was included in its construction, all the knowledge and sophisticated technical improvements developed over the last decade in the maritime industry are on board allowing us to feel like we are on the bridge of a large yacht."
