The Ho’okele (Hawaiian for “Navigator”) is a Great Harbor N37 Trawler, built in 2002. It arrived in Hawaii in 2003 after a two-week crossing from Mexico and the story of its journey from Florida to Hawai’i can be found here. The Ho’okele is currently being used primarily for pelagic fisheries research at University of Hawaii, but is also available for charter.
