About the Hanse Explorer, Antarctica

The Hanse Explorer was built in 2006 for the sole purpose of being an expedition yacht, with the intention of being able to explore any area of the world. There are six staterooms and one owner’s suite available on-board, meaning that there is room for 12 guests in total. This incredible yacht is only available on a private charter basis; meaning that it is perfect for families or small groups travelling together.

Due to the private nature of the charters itineraries and schedules can be entirely personalised to your specific needs and requirements, from the destination which you want to visit, to the cuisine which you want to experience whilst on-board.
