HANSE EXPLORER is one of few yachts in the world today that can be considered a true Expedition Yacht. Purpose built in 2006 with German precision, HANSE EXPLORER's steel hull has the highest commercial Ice Class rating (Finnish Ice Class A1 / Germanischer Lloyd Ice Class E3) and her powerful engine allows her to break through dense sea ice with ease. Expeditions in recent years have taken HANSE EXPLORER south of the Antarctic Circle, north of 82 degrees north latitude (the High Arctic) and to many other exotic destinations in between. With state of the art navigation equipment, a 9,000nm cruising range, the capacity to produce 20 tons of fresh water onboard every day and an extraordinary level of seaworthiness, HANSE EXPLORER is entirely self sufficient for long range exploration. HANSE EXPLORER's professional crew and expert guides will take you to the most remote and exciting destinations on Earth - a journey of both substance and style.
