MS Villa Private Yacht Charter

Expedition Yacht MS Villa was originally built for the Norwegian Governemenet to service lighthouses and buoys along the rough Norwegian coast. With an ice-strengthened keel and ice propeller, MS Villa is fitted to challenge the icy waters of the Arctic. All cabins have been completely redesigned in 2020 with expedition operations and comfort in mind. Every cabin has multiple 230V electrical sockets for charging your photography and filming equipment during the voyage. MS Villa is a rugged yet very comfortable ship, the ideal blend for polar expeditions to the Arctic.

The bridge on MS Villa is the heart of the vessel. Not only for navigation, but also for guides and guests to spot wildlife through the large 180°-view windows. MS Villa has a large 120m² of deck space and 2 zodiacs equipped with new eco-friendly engines with low-noise and low-emissions standards, perfect to get close to wildlife.
MS Villa is a very flexible ship which can be chartered for private tailor-made expeditions or as a platform for film and science projects.

MS Villa is only available as a private charter in the Arctic.
