Navigator News > Travel

Built by J&M Metal Works in Green Cove Springs, Florida, and DeJong & Lebet, Inc., Naval Architects in Jacksonville, Florida, the SEA ISLAND EXPLORER blends traditional flare with modern finishes, including arched, wrap-around windows that provide sweeping views of Sea Island’s natural setting. Accommodating up to 49 passengers, the yacht features a double living room on the main deck, a covered top deck and a prep kitchen and additional event space on the bottom level, making it ideal for scenic nature tours, pre-dinner cocktail cruises, customized private events and more.  Food and beverage choices can be customized for each the occasion. Clay Fordham, a naturalist and Sea Island captain with more than 10 years’ of experience in local waters, will lead all operations aboard SEA ISLAND EXPLORER.

“We are always looking for ways to further enhance our guests’ experiences, especially experiences that provide the opportunity to see Sea Island and our expansive salt marsh from the water,” said Scott Steilen, President and CEO of Sea Island Company. “The SEA ISLAND EXPLORER will live up to its name, allowing guests of all ages to get an up-close look at and better understanding of our amazing ecosystem.”

In addition to unveiling the new yacht, Sea Island is celebrating its 90th “Emerald” Anniversary throughout 2018. Currently, The Lodge at Sea Island is undergoing a multi-million-dollar enhancement project that will debut six new cottages this fall, an oceanfront pool, pool house and 18-hole putting course this summer, and a new state-of-the-art Golf Performance Center (early 2019).
