About the Magellan Explorer
The Magellan Explorer is the world’s first polar expedition ship designed for Antarctic fly-cruise operations. Custom-built to take on polar waters and navigate seamlessly through narrow Antarctic channels, the Magellan Explorer boasts state-of-the-art technology, sleek and stylish interior spaces, and boutique hospitality. The Magellan Explorer is currently under construction with plans to set sail for the 2019/20 Antarctica season. (Please note that the images included on this page are CG renderings.)
This stunning ship offers a number of suites and cabins ranging from 220 ft2 to 440 ft2, with most offering a private balcony from which to enjoy the spectacular scenery. The spacious forward-facing observation lounge and bar were designed with large panoramic windows, so that the Antarctic views are never missed while briefings and presentations are conducted. Other social spaces include a gym, sauna, library, gift shop, meeting room, outdoor barbecue area and large observation deck.
Although the Magellan Explorer is designed to accommodate just 100 passengers, only 69 will travel aboard fly-cruises, allowing for dedicated single cabins and even more space to explore, both on board, by zodiac and on land. With ships in the polar industry getting bigger by the year, the Magellan Explorer will provide small group luxury in the wilderness of Antarctica.
