HANSE EXPLORER is a certified ice breaker yacht (with an extra thick steel hull) with ice class GL-E3. HANSE EXPLORER is able to explore all around the world, including the polar regions and the Northwest Passage. Safety and comfort rank first on the incredible luxury explorer yacht.
HANSE EXPLORER has a powerful main motor (MAK 8 M 20 1 x 1,360 kW, Single Screw, Controllable Pitch Propeller) with an electric standby motor (400 KW) in case of the main failure. She can cruise at 10 knots with a max of 12. Her generators produce a total electric power capacity of approx. 1.000 kilowatts.
She has two independently working air conditioning compressors which provide a pleasant room temperature in tropic areas as well as in Arctic and Antarctic waters. There are two independent heating systems generating the necessary heat for comfort. Two autarkic freshwater systems (osmosis device/evaporator) provide sufficient fresh water on board.
She also has independent toilet facilities (vacuum/gravity toilet). To protect the environment there is a highly efficient water conditioning system that allows the yacht to cruise even the most sensitive areas of the world.

HANSE EXPLORER Enquiry
Dear Amanda, We're currently making the crossing from South Georgia to Ushuaia and will be closing out our charter at the end of the week. It's been exceptionally successful all around. The weather has been remarkably steady and friendly and we haven't had any really bumby rides. A day or so each way to/frum South Georgia but with 2-3 meter seas at worst. Best of all this has been the perfect boat and crew. Well found and well equipped, and each and every member of the crew and expedition leaders have gone out of their way to make it the most enjoyable and adventuresome experience. High praise indeed to Captain Martin! Thanks for your own great help all around. I'v had many charters with agents over the years - none better than this one reflecting your advice and support!
