Travel to the North pole transformed from an exotic adventure in ordinary trips for affluent tourists, therefore the shipbuilding industry to develop new types of ships: the Arctic yacht. Globe Regal Yachting together with Gill Schmid Designs and Dörries Yachts has developed the project of the super-yacht “Ida Pfeiffer”. This is an analogue of 5-star hotel in the format of a ship for navigation in ice.

Polar yacht Ida Pfeiffer has 70 m length and a displacement of 1,500 tons with a draft of only 3.75 m, which allows it to pass through shallow waters without getting stuck among ice hummocks. Propulsion diesel-electric, Autonomous cruising range reaches 11,000 km, but cruising speed is kept secret. The ship received a high ice-breaking nose, but ice to what class it belongs to is unknown.

The crew of the polar of the yacht is 15, she can take on Board 14 passengers, offering 7 guest cabins, plus the owner’s Suite of the ship. The layout is such that guests do not face virtually with the crew, they even between decks will move to different ladders. But to get into technical areas, will have to try.

On Board Ida Pfeiffer has its own mini-submarine “Triton”, two land transport, cranes for unloading onto the ice, and a helipad with a hangar pre-engineered against the elements. The ship can be used for fun, cruises or commercial operations in polar waters. It is built to order and the price is kept secret.
