Built for off-the-beaten track adventures, PIONEER was launched by Palmer Johnson in 2006 and, following an extensive 2015 refit, has been adventuring to far-flung destinations. She is now offering the rare opportunity to explore Greenland during the month of July.
Designed by Vripack, she has an 8,000 nautical mile range and a modern stabilisation system for smooth and comfortable cruising in this ice-covered region. The jagged, fjord-line coastline certainly invites exploration, with astounding Artic wildlife to spot on land and under the water.
The Northwest Passage, meanwhile, is a series of waterways winding though the Canadian Artic Archipelago, and charters will be able to experience the amazing wildlife, history and local Inuit culture the passages offers from mid-August as PIONEER returns south towards the Caribbean.
As well as taking in sublime landscapes of snow-capped mountains, lush meadows and floating icebergs, guests will also be able to experience the endless days known as the midnight sun, dive shipwrecks, sea kayak like a local and retrace the routes of by-gone explorers.
The modern-classic interior aboard luxury yacht PIONEER provides a sumptuous retreat after a day of diving under the icebergs, heli-skiing or trekking though mountainous terrain. Warm woods and pale furnishings create a welcoming atmosphere for all to enjoy on a private yacht charter.
On the main deck, guests can get-together in the large salon or take some time out in the adjoining library before being served dinner in a formal dining salon. There are plenty of opportunities for dining and relaxing on deck too, with a highlight being the split-level sundeck.
After a busy day on the water, charterers can retreat into one of five staterooms. Located on the upper deck, a master suite incorporates a private lounge and benefits from stunning panoramic vistas. The remaining cabins are on the lower deck alongside a fully-equipped gym.
