Ex-Google CEO Eric Schmidt's research fleet

On the left: the former salvage tug "Simson" and former superyacht "Lone Ranger" being refitted into a research vessel.

On the right: the former fishery protection vessel "Seefalke" being refitted into a research vessel as well.

Both ships belong to Eric Schmidt's "Schmidt Ocean Institute", a private ocean research foundation. The refit is executed at Peters Schiffbau, a German shipyard that was also responsible for turning "Lone Ranger" into a superyacht.
