Hanse Explorer is a purpose built steel motor yacht with highest commercial ice class (Finnish ice class A1, GL ice class E3). Her steel hull has the strength to endure the intensity of driving through multi-year pack ice. A booster mode makes it possible to increase the power when the ship is encountering heavy ice and needs an extra thrust to break free. She boasts the highest available commercial ice class, undoubtedly making her the toughest ship of her size.

Built for maximum efficiency, Hanse Explorer was fashioned for minimal environmental impact. Her MAK diesel engine runs on light marine gas oil only and is modern, reliable and highly fuel-efficient. She is equipped with a shaft generator, which produces the ship’s electricity while underway and saves considerable amounts of fuel. A reverse osmosis (desalination) plant produces 20 tons of fresh water a day and the biological wastewater treatment plant transforms sewage into gray water, which is safely released back into the sea. A Hoppe Tank Anti-Rolling System reduces the ship’s movements while at sea for maximum safety and comfort. A Power Take-Home (PTH) System makes it possible to run all three auxiliary engines to generate enough electrical power to run the shaft generator as an electric motor for emergency propulsion.

All 7 staterooms may be configured for either Queen or Twin sleeping arrangements. The Owner‘s Suite is situated on the Upper Deck, consisting of a Stateroom, ensuite and a large adjoining private lounge. The remaining 6 Guest Staterooms on the Main Deck are practically identical, apart from subtle differences in color scheme. All staterooms have private en suite facilities and are fully air-conditioned/heated with individual controls in each room. Each stateroom is equipped with a satellite telephone, flatscreen TV, DVD entertainment system and small desk. All staterooms are very quiet and peaceful due to the exceptional noise reduction.
