Expedition Yacht Design

A fundamental question a yacht owner should ask is what do they hope to get out of their yacht? Not every yacht can operate safely in challenging environments like Antarctica, and owners need to understand what capabilities—and limitations—they are putting into their vessels. With our years of hard won expertise operating in the harshest climates, we know what works and what should be left out of an expedition yacht design.

In 2015, we partnered with Damen to create SeaXplorer, the first polar code compliant, globally-capable, purpose-built expedition superyacht.

To see how we can help modify or make your next yacht truly capable of reaching the world’s most exotic and remote regions, contact us.

New Yacht Builds

EYOS Expeditions has decades of operational expertise in the most remote regions in the world. We understand that designs that work in the Caribbean are often impractical in more demanding locations. We work with shipyards to incorporate facilities for expedition operations from the very beginning. By incorporating these features during the design phase, we save owners money on costly modifications, increase the capabilities of the yacht and make it more desirable for potential charters.

Yacht Rebuilds

If you are refitting an expedition yacht, you will find consulting our marine team a wise investment. Our hard won experience spans hundreds of voyages during small ship expeditions to the Polar Regions; we know what works and what does not when operating in the most extreme environments.
