The Northern Karoline is Northern Survey’s first ship and was originally built as a whaler in a shipyard in Glasgow, Scotland. Northern Karoline served as a whaler in the Antarctic until this whaling was largely banned in the 1960s. The ship then served as a cargo ship transporting quarry stone, from Norway to the Danish ports. In the 1980s, the Northern Karoline was converted into a standby rescue vessel for the offshore sector. In 2009, Northern Survey bought the ship from Møkster shipping. In 2020, the Northern Karoline underwent an extensive refit, including a completely new accommodation and a class renewal. - Despite her years she is a dependable and much sought after lady, who always leaves the customers satisfied after every job!
