Aurora Expeditions Launches New Vessel for Polar Adventures

Australia’s Aurora Expeditions has announced the delivery of its first purpose-built expedition vessel, which will make its debut during the 2019/2020 Antarctic season (November to March).


The 104-metre ship will be the first to use X-BOW technology, which has the ability to pierce waves with much greater stability. This will make open sea journeys like Antarctica's notorious Drake Passage more pleasant for passengers than what is currently available from other small ships on the market today.


It will also feature a custom-designed platform to cater for additional numbers of kayakers and divers, and a mud room for climbers and skiers.


The yet-to-be-named ship’s itineraries will be released later this year.
