MAGELLAN EXPLORER

EXPEDITION-LUXURY (73 GUESTS)

ABOUT THE MAGELLAN EXPLORER

STYLE: EXPEDITION-LUXURY

SIZE: 73-100 GUESTS

BUILT: 2019

The Magellan Explorer is a new (currently under construction – all images are renders) purpose built polar expedition vessel.  She will offer almost exclusively Fly-Cruise voyages from Punta Arenas in Chile to King George Island  on the Antarctic Peninsula.  The Magellan Explorer is capable of carrying 100 guests, however she will take just 73 passengers on her fly cruise voyages.   Not only does this allow all the guests for one cruise to arrive and depart on the same flight (flights are limited to 75 passengers) it also affords all guests to get off the ship for excursions quickly and efficiently.

Her maiden voyage to Antarctica will be in November 2019. The ship has 50 suites and cabins in five categories, including dedicated single cabins. The cabins are spacious, ranging in size from 20 to 40 square metres.  42 cabins feature a large window and a private balcony, 8 have a porthole. All cabins feature a private bathroom and a sitting area.

She has a forward-facing observation lounge, an observation deck, a dining room that accommodates everyone at one sitting.  She also has an outdoor barbecue area, a gym, and a sauna. The bow of the ship is accessible to guests to offer expansive views during exploration.  Adventure activities include kayaking and snowshoeing.

Specific measures have been taken to minimize Magellan Explorer’s carbon footprint, including state-of-the-art engines that produce very low emissions. To minimize fuel consumption, a waste heat recovery system recycles the heat produced by the ship’s engines and re-purposes it to power the ship’s heating system and to warm the water used on board.
