Originally built as a research vessel, Nansen Explorer represents today a hybrid between a capable and powerful commercial ship with the comforts and service of a luxury yacht.
A true polar adventurer with an Ice-1A classed, 72 meter long hull and an ice-experienced Captain and bridge team, she can sail further, and penetrate deeper into ice, than other yachts. An expansive heli-deck, complete with onboard refueling capabilities, allows exploration inland or heli-skiing the slopes of Greenland. Kayaks, SUPs, and two Mk V Zodiacs offer ample opportunities to explore on a more intimate scale.
The accommodation sleeps a total of 12 guests across 7 en-suite cabins:
1 Master suite, 2 VIP staterooms, 2 double cabins and 2 twin cabins.
