The Professor Multanovskiy or Professor Molchanov
|Cruise Speed||12 knots|
The "Professor Molchanov" and the "Professor Multanovskiy" are sister ships. They are modern and comfortable oceanographic research vessels.
Built in 1983 in Finland, both were designed as ice-strengthened vessels. They have been converted for passenger use and are ideally suited for expedition cruising. They have a good anti-roll system, a range of 70 days independent operation and are ISM certified.
The vessels are strongly built of steel with an ice strengthened hull, perfect for polar seas. The "Professor Molchanov" and the "Professor Multanovskiy" are manned by enthusiastic Russian crews of around 20, all highly experienced in ice navigation. Russian captains are recognised experts in polar navigation.
All our international expedition leaders and lecturers are highly knowledgeable, helpful and dedicated to the protection of the environment.
The ships have a large bridge (where you are almost always welcome) and good open deck-viewing areas. They carry a full complement of Zodiac craft, excellent for landings and wildlife viewing opportunities in otherwise in-accessible areas. Excellent cuisine, prepared by international chefs, is served in the dining room, which also acts as the lecture room. Other public areas include a lounge and bar, small library, infirmary, and sauna.
