Nice - Engel & Völkers Yachting - Hanse Explorer

Welcome to Hanse Explorer, where the philosophy is an ‘open ship’ concept that encourages guests to explore all areas on board without restrictions. Those seeking extraordinary adventures have found their match with this remarkably seaworthy 48-metre explorer vessel. Considered to be one of the true expedition yachts available for charter, Hanse Explorer ventures into both tropical and polar waters depending on the season in which you wish to charter her. Hanse Explorer was designed to ensure her guests never miss a moment – whether they are relaxing on board or enjoying the day surrounded by glimmering pearl-white icebergs, crystal-clear waters and splashes of pure turquoise hues all around that perfectly blend all the magic together. She is ideal for a wide variety of expedition routes, even venturing south of the Antarctic Circle, to the High Arctic and to many other exotic destinations in between. Her state-of-the-art navigation equipment, approx. 9,000 nm cruising range, and the capacity to produce 20 tons of fresh water on board every day all enable her long-range exploration capabilities. The builder of Hanse Explorer, the Fassmer shipyard, specializes in sophisticated rescue boats, research vessels and patrol boats, all of which have to be incredibly reliable. “Given safety has always been very important to my father it seemed the perfect fit,” says Imke Harren, daughter to the owner and the vessel’s commercial manager.

Hanse Explorer can accommodate up to 12 adventurous guests, always with maximum comfort in mind. She has an expansive aft deck, a spacious saloon and an adjoining dining room that features large windows. All in combination, guests experience an extension of the phenomenal views while indoors here. Her professional crew are worthy of unconditional trust and confidence, as they are highly experienced and understand the unique needs of expedition clients, whether they are large families, big groups or a venturesome couple enjoying a romantic escape. In the winter season, Hanse Explorer can be found cruising through South American or Antarctic waters. In the summer, her typical destinations are Norway and Arctic destinations such as Svalbard, Greenland and the Canadian Arctic. If you have chosen to take Hanse Explorer on a tropical adventure, the first favourite of guests is to have the captain drop anchor in a lovely bay. Enjoy an afternoon swimming and diving through stunning coral reefs and schools of friendly fish. For those who are a little more adventurous, she carries two Mark-IV Zodiacs for landing on secluded Pacific beaches and discovering remote private islands. End the evening dining al fresco under the stars with fresh ingredients sourced from your local surroundings, prepared to perfection by the onboard chef. After dinner, indulge in a night-cap in the lounge with panoramic views of the starlit skies bouncing off the gentle waves and creating a mirror of dim light.

Hanse Explorer is also equipped to take you further north, including to the Arctic regions. For your first day, after a delicious and filling breakfast, head up to the bridge and watch the captain navigate the vessel through the incredible views of towering icebergs above and crashing ice below. Her powerful engine allows her to break through dense sea ice with ease, along with her steel hull that has the highest commercial Ice Class rating (Finnish Ice Class A1 / Germanischer Lloyd Ice Class E3). Spend days cruising along while spotting wildlife like seals and whales, or landing at penguin colonies. Make a list of activities you would like to do while on board that only the Arctic regions can offer, including climbing snow-clad hills and sea kayaking. Fishing, kite surfing or paddle boarding are also available options. Before calling it a day, take out the Zodiacs and cruise underneath frozen gateways with a small group for the perfect photo op. After a long adrenaline-filled day, take advantage of the Finnish sauna on the lower deck and simply relax.
