The hull of Greenpeace’s new multi-million dollar flagship vessel, the Rainbow Warrior III, has been finished in Poland. Jacek Winiarski, spokesman of Greenpeace’s Polish branch, told AFP that the hull of the Rainbow Warrior III was being towed by tug to Bremen, Germany, where it is to be fitted out and launched next year.

The ship marks the first time the organization has built a vessel from scratch, allowing it to integrate some cutting-edge green features. As reported last summer,

Hull shape designed specifically for superior energy efficiency, A-frame mast and sails– optimized for highly effective sailing, electric drive system (10 knots on only 300 kW), green ship class notation with Green Passport, biological treatment of sewage and gray water, central filling and venting system for fuel and oils to prevent spills, environmentally friendly paint system, and re-use of engine heat to make hot water.

The ship will be launched next year to coincide with the group’s 40th anniversary. Check out a time-lapse of the construction after the jump below.
