Vessel Description


This vessel was originally built to patrol the cold waters of the North Atlantic for the Scottish Fisheries Protection Agency. She was converted into a long-range expedition yacht and relaunched in 2014.

She has proven herself as an accomplished charter expedition yacht in Antarctica, earning €290,000/week (plus all expenses).

The structural changes (est cost was over €20mil) were aimed at bringing as much light as possible into her interiors. The portholes were enlarged, skylights added and a new upper deck saloon was created with wrap around windows.
