Nansen Explorer

Check Availability ›

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.

Designed to carry 60 passengers, Nansen Explorer 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 mouthwatering and memorable meals that surprise and delight. Down below, a large gym is available. 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 operate the ship. 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. She is also available for those looking to book a single cabin on a scheduled departure in the polar regions.
