Janssonius is specially designed for polar travel, maximizing speed and safety while minimizing environmental impact. The vessel is using LED lighting, steam heat, bio-degradable paints and lubricants, and is also equipped with flexible power management systems keeping fuel consumption and CO2 levels low.
Due in part to the recent investment from Bolster Investment Partners, Oceanwide Expeditions continues to plan itineraries and build ships that boast the latest advancements in expedition travel.
MV Janssonius was named after the 17th-century Dutch cartographer Jan Janssonius, son-in-law of Flemish cartographer Jodocus Hondius. The newbuild will be completed and ready to commence her first Antarctic season in November.
