Just like the legendary discoverer, the HANSEATIC also has a passion to explore new territories and hidden places. We anchor where other ship’s only sail by, take course for those destinations that are untouched and fascinatingly foreign. Such as the Arctic, Antarctic, as well as the Gambia River, the Amazons or the Orinoco. But we also cruise South America, Mediterranean or the West European Coast: on our “Expedition of Knowledge" you will be acquainted with and understand a multiple of new experiences. As on all HANSEATIC voyages, well travelled Lecturers will also guide you here, bringing you closer to the exciting unknown and point out new interesting sights to be seen – onboard and on land.
With a discreet 5 star rating onboard, we set sail every day into new worlds. How can the beauty which nature already provides and cultural treasures from an ancient civilisation be kept alive, the HANSEATIC will bring you close up to all of these. She has a very low draught, is small and agile, reaches very flat beaches and steers safely through intricate rivers. Thanks to her 14 Zodiacs, special robust rubber dinghy’s developed for such expeditions, the HANSEATIC casually brings you to all places, where there is either something exciting, extraordinary or rare to be seen.
