The Greg Mortimer was built in 2019, making in one of the newest polar ships in circulation around the poles.
As well as using cutting edge nautical technology it was designed in consultation with the experienced expedition team to create one of the most practical and advanced ships in operation. It is the first passenger ship to feature the revolutionary Ulstein X Bow, this gives the hull a curved shape increasing the foreship volume, as a result the water gently flows over the bow, reducing the impact and slamming waves. This is particularly noticeable in helping to calm the notorious Drake passage.
The ship averages 126 passengers in 77 comfortable, stylish cabins spread across 8 decks, from the Staterooms with a porthole window right up to the Captain’s suite complete with a balcony and walk-in wardrobe.
The cutting-edge design continues with hydraulic viewing platforms that fold out for un-obscured views of passing wildlife, state of the art lecture facilities and four sea-level launching platforms for the fifteen Zodiacs on board.
Depending on the voyage several extra activities are on offer such as kayaking diving, climbing and ski-touring, there is a dedicated activities platform to ensure the transition from ship to sea or shore is as smooth as possible.
