Unparalleled expedition yachting with the SeaXplorer 105
Right at the top of the SeaXplorer range is the 105-metre SeaXplorer 105 (345 ft).
It represents everything that drives them to be leaders of the luxury expedition yacht market, and this magnificent vessel combines the very best features of luxury yachting with true explorer capability.
Discovery on the World's Oceans
The SeaXplorer 105 has a true luxury expedition-sized volume with a Gross Tonnage of 6,500 and 5,775 square metres (62,162 sq ft) over her 8 decks. She offers large staterooms for 24 guests, including two expansive Owner Suites, built under PYC rules making her fully charterable. She has huge onboard stores for all provisions, luggage parts as well as heli fuel, tender fuel and tanks for 8,000 nautical mile (Trans Pacific) range. As part of the SeaXplorer expedition yacht range, the SeaXplorer 105 shares the unique Observation Lounge with the outside bow point deck – but on a big scale with 123 square metres (1,324 sq ft) devoted to enjoying spectacular views. The space includes a bar and multimedia centre.
Together with the latest hybrid diesel-electric pod propulsion to reduce the impact on our oceans, the SeaXplorer 105 complies with the IMO Polar Code category B requirements for polar safety and environmental protection. Her hull is built with Polar Class 7 ice strengthening with double-acting stern icebreaking for maximum safety in fast-changing ice conditions. The powerful stabiliser fins retract where difficult-to-detect ‘growlers’ (truck-sized fragments of icebergs or glaciers) float beneath the surface – significant hazards for yachts with weak hull appendages such as fixed fins.
Helideck, Party Space or Tennis Court - Choose one!
The fully certified twin helideck (primary surface and standby area) is suitable for two fast and reliable twin-engine helicopters. Below deck a weathertight double hangar with hydraulic lift system keeps both aircraft protected from the elements. Two helicopters offer increased flexibility, redundancy and safety when out of range of rescue services. Plus in Antarctica, regulations require two helicopters when flying far or landing in the mountains for skiing.
