About This Boat

M/V Plancius Antartican Cruise
The 293-ft M/V Plancius was built in 1976 for the Royal Dutch Navy as an oceanographic research vessel, the Hr. Ms. Tydeman. The ship sailed for the Dutch Navy until June 2004 and was then completely rebuilt and converted to a 116 passenger polar expedition vessel in 2009. The ship has been designed as a setting for passengers interested in an exploratory educational experience on their Antarctica vacations, looking to spend as much time on the Antarctic shore as possible rather than in luxury accommodations. The Plancius complies with the latest SOLAS (Safety of Life At Sea) regulations and travels at a speed of 10-12 knots. She is ice-strengthened with bow and stern thrusters for maneuverability (Ice Class 1D).

The vessel offers a restaurant/lecture room on deck three and a spacious observation lounge with bar and library on deck five. Large windows offer a full panorama view of Antarctica, and the ship has large open deck spaces, including one walk-around deck for exercise or strolling during your Antarctic adventure.
Equipped with shore adventures gear, the vessel has ten Mark V Zodiacs, including HP 4 -stroke outboard engines and two starboard gangways for a smooth zodiac operation.

The M/V Plancius is manned by a highly experienced 17-member nautical crew, an international hotel/catering staff of 19, a doctor, and 8 expedition staff (1 expedition leader and 7 guide/lecturers).
