Where can you charter Nansen Explorer


Blanketed with ice and largely unspoiled, the pristine land of Antarctica offers some of the most awe-inspiring sights in the world. Discovering the region on a yacht charter, gliding past icebergs and cruising to islands populated with penguins, is a truly unique holiday experience.

Antarctica, South Pole Yacht Charter


A wonderland of icy blue glaciers, vast ice fields and stunning deep blue fjords, Greenland is the largest non-continental island in the world, with the smallest population. This is a destination where the most intrepid adventurer charterers are richly rewarded.

Epic polar adventures

Reaching destinations off the beaten track

NANSEN EXPLORER offers an enhanced expedition experience in the polar regions. A true adventurer, she utilises her ice-class hull and polar-experienced officers to penetrate deep into the ice, reaching destinations well out of reach of conventional superyachts. The specialist crew, including two expedition guides have decades of experience within the polar expedition world as well as the superyacht industry.

An adventure hangar can be found on board where kayaks, SUPs and dive equipment are safely stored in one place. This leaves plenty of open deck areas clear for wildlife and scenic viewing. The yacht also has a large helicopter landing pad, fitted with a refuelling station.
