About This Boat

M/V Ortelius, Adventure Class Cruise in Antarctica

The 299-ft M/V Ortelius was built in Poland in 1989 as a research vessel for the Russian Academy of Science, previously named the Marina Svetaeva. In 2014, the Ortelius was refurbished into a 116 passenger polar expedition vessel, offering passengers a quality exploratory wildlife program during their Antarctica travel, maximizing wildlife observation by spending as much time ashore as possible. The Ortelius complies with the latest SOLAS (Safety of Life At Sea) regulations and is ice-strengthened with the highest ice class notation (UL1 equivalent to 1A). The vessel can navigate in solid one-year sea ice and loose, multi-year pack ice, and enable passengers to visit remote locations on their Antarctica adventures.
