Vessel information

A 102ft /31m expedition motor yacht, built in 1965 by the legendary Dunston Shipyard. She was last refitted in 2018 to a high standard.

She started life as a North Sea trawler, and was converted into a Lloyd’s safety vessel in the 1980s. In 2012 she was converted into an expedition motor vessel after an extensive refit. In 2018 she was upgraded extensively to the beautiful vessel you see today.

She accommodates 12 guests in 7 cabins. 4 cabins have large private bathrooms, and 3 cabins share a bathroom located on deck level.

The vessel has a well-appointed galley and mess room, an elegant and comfortable mahogany paneled salon, with bar and kitchenette.

Her deck areas are spacious with semi enclosed decks on the sides, and equipped with much auxiliary equipment.

A sturdy vessel with elegant sheer, she sails with abundant intimacy from a bygone era of tramp steamers.


The owner and crew have vast experience in the Arctic, having completed numerous scientific and private expeditions.

Over the past decade our clients included, NYU, Environment Canada, NASA/JPL, U.S.NAVY UWC, UCI, TV and film companies.
