What makes explorer yachts different from regular yachts?
Explorer yachts are specifically built for long-range cruising in the most extreme conditions. They are typically built to ice-class standards and feature large fuel tanks and ample cold and dry storage space for extra provisions. So, no matter where you might be in the world, you can always enjoy the finest cuisines on an explorer yacht charter. In addition, adventure yachts often boast exceptional long-range fuel efficiency, enabling them to cruise to the most remote destinations in the world.
Expedition yachts are typically loaded with state-of-the-technology and their large hull space enables them to carry specialist equipment and toys, including submersibles, snowmobiles, helicopters and a selection of tenders suited to the most extreme environments. The largest vessels may feature research laboratories and medical centres.
While explorer yachts may boast rugged exteriors, they still offer all the luxuries and onboard comforts of a more traditional superyacht. Long-range expedition yachts are purposefully built to ensure comfortable cruising, often boasting deep displacement ice-classed hulls, stabilisers, and a high degree of manoeuvrability.
