Nansen Explorer is a new concept for yachting; originally built as a research vessel, she represents today a hybrid between a capable and powerful commercial ship with the comforts and service of a luxury yacht.
Originally built to carry 60 passengers, she now carries only 12 guests in 7 staterooms. 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. Step inside and discover modern, spacious cabins, most with generous floor to ceiling windows. The ship’s lounge is comfortable and inviting, creating a friendly atmosphere for excited conversation at the end of a full day. Superb chefs offer mouth-watering and memorable meals that surprise and delight. Down below, a large gym is available, and at the very top of the ship, the Bridge is always open if you want to chat with one of the Officers. EYOS and Nansen Explorer have come together in an exclusive partnership to bring the ship to the market. Expedition capability is at this vessel’s very core, with a hand picked crew and expedition team that thrives on operational capability and flexibility. Bridging the gap between rugged expedition vessel and luxury super yacht, Nansen Explorer is unlike anything else available for adventure seeking charterers or those looking to book a single cabin on a scheduled departure in the polar regions.
Total Crew: 14 crew + 2 expedition team
Cruising speed:11 kt

She also proudly features an Adventure Hangar where kayaks, SUPs and dive equipment is stored, including an additional space for expedition preparations and relaxing, leaving her many open deck areas clear for wildlife and scenic viewing.
