Nansen Explorer | Luxury Yacht | Antarctica

Property Description

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, MV 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 helideck, 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 exciting 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.

Nansen Polar Expeditions and EYOS 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 superyacht, MV 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.


Photography themed expedition in Antarctica: 1-12 Feb 2022

Prices from EUR 27,500 / head (based on two guests sharing a cabin)

The photography-themed expedition is designed to be longer than most other Peninsula sailings, giving ample opportunity to reach both the Weddell Sea in the north, and weather permitting, Marguerite Bay, south of the Antarctic Circle and seldomly reached by ships. Renowned polar photographers, Daisy Gilardini, winner of BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Ambassador for Greenpeace; and Audun Lie Dahl, winner of European Wildlife Photographer of the Year, will be onboard to share tips with guests to capture the perfect shot in the field.
