Spirit of Enderby

Introduction

This expedition vessel is one of the best-run ships of its kind. Ideally suited for cruising the Southern Ocean, the ship has been carefully outfitted with the best of expeditionary equipment, and staffed by extremely knowledgeable people.

Refurbished

The Spirit of Enderby was refurbished in Lyttelton (NZ) prior to the start of the 2004/2005 season. Refurbishment included the construction of a new bar/library, renovating the galley and dinning rooms, refurbishing the cabins including the construction of lower berths in most of the twin share private facilities cabins on the 400 and 500 level, the recarpeting of the vessel and the construction of a lecture room with the latest technology in audio presentation. The ship is under the command of an experienced team of Russian Officers and crew but we will continue to place New Zealand and Australian hotel and expedition staff on board.

Stats

The Spirit of Enderby measures 72 metres in length and is fully ice-strengthened. Powered by two, 1,156 horse power, diesel engines. It is capable of speeds of up to 12 knots.

Our specially designed and built Hovercraft give us unprecedented over ice capability in Antarctica allowing us to land in places that are inaccessible to other ships.

Named in Honor of Antarctic Heroes

The name Spirit of Enderby honours the work and the vision of the Enderby Brothers of London. The Enderby Captains were at the forefront of Antarctic exploration for almost 40 years in the early 1800’s. It also celebrates Enberby Island, arguably the greatest Sub Antarctic Island in the world.
