Private Charter MV Cape Race

The MV Cape Race is available on a private charter base from Fietz GmbH Polar Kreuzfahrten Germany. As german experts for cruises in polar regions, we have been authorised by the owner to handle all requests.  Please contact us to talk about availability and itineraries.

The vessel is a deep-sea trawler converted to an expedition/research yacht. Originally she was designed to fish year round in the toughest seas of the world. So her ice-strengthened hull navigates the Arctic waters in safety and comfort.

The ship charters to 12 guests on tailored voyages in remote regions. Onboard there are two Zodiacs and multiple sea kayaks, full safety equipment for offshore and cold water voyages as well as satellite communications. The yacht has mothership capability for diving or snorkelling.

She has a fine and well seasoned crew. The accommodations aboard are spacious and handsome. There are four staterooms with queen size beds, private head and shower, one large stateroom with two single and two double beds, two single cabins, a mahogany paneled saloon equipped with ship’s wood-stove and a piano, a mess room as well as a cedar-lined sauna.

Cape Race has been redesigned with the idea of having many voluminous work and leisure spaces outside. There is a dining deck under the mizzen mast and the fore deck is perfect for photo and film-making.
