Plancius

History - M/v Plancius was built in 1976 as an oceanographic research vessel for the Royal Dutch Navy and was named Hr. Ms. Tydeman. The ship sailed for the Dutch Navy until June 2004. The vessel was completely rebuilt as a 116-passenger vessel in 2009 and complies with the latest SOLAS-regulations (Safety Of Life At Sea). M/v Plancius is classed by Lloyd’s Register in London and flies the Dutch flag.

MV Plancius accommodates 116 passengers in 53 passenger cabins with private toilet and shower.
Comfort and character - The vessel offers a restaurant/lecture room and a spacious observation lounge (with bar) with large windows, offering full panorama view. M/v Plancius has large open deck spaces, giving excellent opportunities to enjoy the scenery and wildlife. M/v Plancius is comfortable and nicely decorated, but is not a luxury vessel. Our 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 our demands to achieve this. The vessel is ice-strengthened and was specially built for oceanographic voyages.
