About This Boat

M/V Akademik Sergey Vavilov

The 384-ft M/V Akademik Sergey Vavilov, also known as the Voyager, was built in Finland in 1988 as a research vessel for the Russian Academy of Science. The research vessel was later converted to a polar expedition vessel, with a traveler capacity restricted to 92 passengers and is very stable, quiet and comfortable. The Akademik Sergey Vavilov is sister ship to the Akademik Ioffe and has been designed as a setting for passengers interested in an exploratory educational experience on their Antarctica trips, maximizing wildlife observation by spending as much time ashore as possible. The Akademik Sergey Vavilov complies with the latest SOLAS (Safety of Life At Sea) regulations and flies under the Russian flag. She travels at a maximum speed of 14.5 knots, is ice-strengthened (Lloyds Register 1A, Canadian Type B) with bow and stern thrusters for maneuverability, and a has combination of internal stabilizers and a built-in ballast trimming system for vessel stabilization.

It accommodates 92 passenger in 43 passenger cabins with shared, semi private or private toilet and shower facilities. All cabins are outside cabins with exterior views from windows or portholes.

The M/V Akademik Sergey Vavilov offers many open deck spaces, including a bar/lounge on deck. She has comfortable staterooms, a restaurant with portholes, a library with wonderful forward facing views, a theater-style lecture room, a multi-media room, a sauna, hot water spa, salt water plunge pool, fitness and massage room, an elevator servicing decks 1-5 and a mudroom!
