Developed initially as a submarine flyingboat, Marine Trench Co. soon saw the possibilities for extending their operations into space and the Moray SFB became the "Star Boat" after its ingenious adaptations were completed. Aquatic space-faring races are the main users of this multi-purpose vessel, whose hull is able to withstand the pressures of depths of up to 5500 fathoms. Standard fittings include: highpower seal locks, 2 torpedo tube / single missile pods and flood-lock cabins for subaquatic life-forms.
|A Moray. A subaqua vessel, designed for both space and undersea voyaging. The Moray was a rare ship indeed to see in space, especially about to undertake a hyperspace transit. On worlds like Regiti and Aona, where the only land was the tips of volcanoes, rising above the oceans, the Moray was both freighter and public transport, a vital ship-link between the undersea cities that were developing in such hostile environments.

The most common variant of this ship is the Moray Medical Boat (Oolite) - series 01, later upgraded to the Moray Medical Boat - series 02. The escort variant Moray Guard Boat never was a particular success, however, the vessel sold well enough to keep the production going.
