Originally built for the Canadian Coast Guard in Quebec, she was designed, constructed and classed for light ice breaking. She is a Collingwood-designed Expedition Ship, which spent her first 30 years operating year-round in fresh water on the St. Lawrence Sea Way.
This go-anywhere expedition style ship was first converted for yacht-style cruising.
Originally accommodating a crew of 34, the vessel was sold to the U.S. owner in 1993, at which time she was converted to a luxury expedition yacht. There were a number of cabins removed to make way for guest accommodations, a large master cabin and a main salon.
In 1999, she underwent a 6-month mechanical refit of all engines and operating systems wherein the owner spent more than US 4 million dollars on the upgrades alone. In the spring of 2000 two new John Deere 115 kW generators were installed as well as a backup 150 kW Isuzu and massive 8 tons hydraulic deck crane. She is tremendously efficient burning only 30 gallons per hour at cruise for both engines and one of her generators.
This yacht/ship is a must see for anyone that is looking for an expedition vessel capable of world cruising.
The different refit history is available on request.
