Combining advanced technology with safety and comfort, YERSIN was designed to take her charter guests to the world’s most remote destinations for adventure and “off the beaten track” itineraries, including the polar regions.
Named after the great 19th century explorer, adventurer, scientist and educator, Dr Alexandre Yersin, this incredible vessel has undertaken several scientific research voyages, including for The Principality of Monaco and HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco.
Today, after a thorough refit, YERSIN provides accommodation and 5-star amenities for up to 18 guests and is available for charter in Greenland, Iceland, Norway; the Caribbean; Japan and Polynesia.
Over six levels, YERSIN will impress and delight charter guests looking for the best of all worlds.
Large walkways join the various deck spaces. YERSIN’s expansive decks offer a variety of areas for relaxing and socialising. There’s an alfresco lounge and dining areas on Deck 1 and Deck 3, with magnificent views of the ocean and the added bonus of custom-built snow awnings for polar trips. On Deck 2, the observatory is ideal for stargazing. Above is the large sun deck with Teppanyaki grill, sun lounges, sunpads and pool.
Deck 1 has a multi-purpose space dedicated to launching watertoys, tenders and other gear, including a seaplane or submersible, both of which can be ranted at an additional cost should you wish. This huge space can also be covered for hosting social events.
Connected by elevator, the six level YERSIN has three comfortable lounges plus a well-stocked library and media room. On the upper deck, a cosy 14-seat cinema with fully-immersive surround sound and 4K enhanced projection is perfect for film nights.
Equipped with a professional galley, YERSIN offers charter guests a wide range of onboard dining options including two large formal dining rooms for 18, plus two elegant bars, including a sushi bar.
The lower deck is composed of a spa and well-equipped gym as well as a hammam, hair salon, massage room and spa pool for guests’ fitness and well-being requirements.
On the main deck is a versatile and multi-functional space with a sliding partition that can be used as a research laboratory, media room or classroom as required.
The décor comprises custom-crafted furniture and original art works that embody the Art Deco aesthetic of the 1930s.
Ideal for hosting large groups, YERSIN offers accommodation up to 18 guests in nine suites, including a master suite, two double cabins, four twin cabins and VIP stateroom. YERSIN also has accommodation for a 24-person crew with additional cabins for helicopter/seaplane pilots.
Each cabin features a full ensuite bathroom plus a top-of-the-range IT and entertainment system.
The owner’s stateroom is inspired by the French colonial era and comes with its own private deck forward and fixed balconies as well as a luminotherapy shower. There’s an office and a settee, a super king size bed, walk-in robe and kitchenette. The large ensuite includes a shower and a bathtub.
All guest suites are located in the vessel “calm zone” to ensure the highest possible comfort and low noise level at sea.
