The Sea Shepherd have successfully completed the transformation of their new sleek harpoon intercepter from the “Ocean Adventurer” to the “Gojira” (Japanese for “Godzilla”). It’s unclear whether the org scrapped original plans to find a sponsor for the boat’s name — or if such a deal might still be on the table. Either way, “Gojira” is a fitting name for a badass boat reportedly worth about $4 million.

In another surprising play of strategy, the Sea Shepherd also managed to register the new vessel with the homeport of Fremantle, Australia. Such a move (the remaining fleet is registered under the Dutch flag) could put a lot more pressure on the Australian government to provide support during Operation No Compromise; especially with Australian crewmembers serving onboard the Gojira.

“Having Fremantle as a homeport for Gojira, and flying the Australian flag, optimizes Australia as the most passionate defender of whales in the world,” said Sea Shepherd’s Australian Director Jeff Hansen in a release.

The Gojira is currently underway to meet up with the rest of the Sea Shepherd fleet in Hobart, Tasmania. Operation No Compromise launches on December 2nd.
