The Ship

The ultimate platform for experiencing the ocean

With silent hybrid-electric ships we leave the spectacular landscape as clean and undisturbed as we found it

Clean, silent and close to nature

Our ships are purpose-built for experiencing Arctic waters with minimal impact on the environment. They are unlike any other.

Thanks to a hybrid-electric engine, there's no noise or vibrations disturbing nature. With underwater drones and hydrophones that capture life below the surface, we bring you closer to the rich wildlife and epic coastal landscapes of the North.

Our first ship MS Brim, the name meaning 'breaking wave' in Old Norse, will launch in early autumn 2019. Our second ship ‘Bard’, named after the Norwegian word for whales' baleens, will launch in spring 2020.

Sustainability meets design

Our goal is a ship that is both sustainable and the ultimate platform for experiencing nature.

The ships are designed by Einar Hariede, an award-winning Norwegian industrial designer, and are built by Maritime Partner in Ålesund, Norway.

They are among the world’s most flexible ships, can be charged at any port and operate on batteries for 10 hours with a cruising speed of 10 knots.

Built in recycled and recyclable aluminium, the ships are light and energy-efficient. With comfortable salons, expansive windows and multiple outdoor decks, guests can enjoy uncompromised panoramic views - without noise or pollution.
