The Plancius


M/v “Plancius” started her life in 1976 as an oceanographic research vessel for the Royal Dutch Navy and was named “Hr. Ms. Tydeman”. In June 2004, the vessel was taken out of active service but has been purchased and is currently being refitted for polar expeditions.

Still under construction, but available October 2009, the vessel shall be completely rebuilt as a 112-passenger vessel and shall comply with the latest SOLAS-regulations (Safety Of Life At Sea), as classed by Lloyd’s Register in London and will fly the Dutch flag. The vessel will be comfortable and nicely decorated, but is not a luxurious vessel. Voyages in the Arctic and Antarctic regions are and will still be primarily defined by an exploratory educational travel programme, spending as much time ashore as possible. This vessel will fully meet the demands to achieve this.
