What are the unique features of an expedition vessel?

There are many features that are unique to expedition vessels. One of the key features is that they are built to ice-class standards and are purposefully designed for cruising in extreme conditions. Explorer yachts are equipped with advanced navigation systems, communication devices, and tenders, while their large volume enables them to carry more provisions and fuel for extended periods at sea. For charterers, this puts the world’s most remote and exciting destinations within reach, including Antarctica, Patagonia, and the Arctic Circle. Other destinations include the Galapagos Islands and exotic locales such as the South Pacific Islands. If you want to explore the world’s most spectacular off-the-radar destination, contact N&J and let our team craft an incredible charter itinerary aboard an expedition yacht.
