Tara has always made me dream. I love this boat that could not have come in better hands than those of Etienne Bourgois. Tara is achieving the goal for which she was designed.

Over the past 10 years Tara has become an ambassador for expanding our knowledge about the Ocean   and working towards its conservation. The amount of information collected by scientists is huge. Tara is responding to a need for long-term in situ observation. But beyond this, Tara is present today on the international scene as a physical personality. Tara is a recognized team with skills that will count a lot in the coming years.
