The SONNE's maiden test voyage took place in early summer of 2014 in the North Sea. The research team and crew tested the design of the huge otter boards, among other things. These are used by scientists from the German Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources to survey the ocean floor in 3D. After its first voyage, the researchers were full of praise for the vessel.
