  • Hybrid electric catamaran MS Bard
    Sail past icebergs and towards a glacier in complete silence, as the brand new hybrid electric catamaran, MS Bard, allows you to experience Svalbard as never before!...

  • Welcome to the new, sustainable way to see Svalbard - on board the hybrid-electric catamaran, MS Bard. Sailing the fjords of Svalbard from May 2020, this specially designed boat will minimise the environmental footprint of its passengers, while maximising their experience. The ship will be available for charter, or for allotment tickets for its standard program, which would be a visit to the ghost town Pyramiden and the Nordenskiöld Glacier as a day trip, and a visit to the Russian town of Barentsburg as a late afternoon tour.

    The ship will use exceptional modern technology to reduce the use of fuels, and can also sail under battery power at up to 10 knots for 10 hours. This capability will definitely be a highlight as we approach the towering glacier, or when we meet marine wildlife underway. The ship can seat up to 146 passengers, all seated with views through the panoramic windows. In addition, there are three decks with outdoor viewing areas, enabling guests to get close to the world outside.
