Narwhal is a 15m steel hulled sloop built in 2004. A purpose built expedition yacht, she is perfect for exploring Norway, Svalbard and beyond.
Narwhal is a 50ft expedition yacht. Made of sturdy steel she is a real go-anywhere boat, ready for adventures to some of the wildest and most remote places on the planet.
A custom made expedition vessel, Narwhal’s interior offerings have been well thought out and she is well equipped to be as comfortable as she can be for guests and crew for long durations at sea. She has twin forward cabins, each with two bunks, and a large stern cabin, a galley, a communal saloon and an extra-cosy additional seating area. With a built-in diesel heater, even when she exploring some of the most remote and coldest locations on the planet, her guests are sure to be kept warm and toasty below decks.
The navigation station is well equipped for all eventualities with Narwhal’s computer system and her top of the range routing software set up for sailing in some of the toughest locations and conditions. She also has a satellite communication system which means we can keep in touch wherever we are in the world. From the necessary modern technologies to the paper charts, dividers and sextants, Narwhal still practices her navigation traditional skills.
Designed to be self-sufficient whilst sailing offshore for extended periods in remote locations, Narwhal has a water-maker as well as large freshwater and fuel tanks. With plenty of room to store food and equipment, Narwhal always has all the things necessary for adventuring in remote locations.
Protecting the environment is at the forefront of Narwhal’s ethos so she is equipped with solar panels and wind and hydro generators to generate power more sustainably. If the wind doesn’t blow however, she does have a 105hp Volvo engine to push along and a generator to keep the lights on.
Narwhal’s voyages are also often focused around the protection of the environment and she regularly runs trips involving beach cleans and marine research.
