Our sturdy 53 ft. steel yacht, the S/Y Sarah W. Vorwerk, allows us to travel in safety and comfort in this sublime region of Antarctica. It has ample space to accommodate a total of 10 crew. For eight guests there are four equal two bunk cabins, with ample storage space and a bedside lamp. The yacht was built in 1988 at the Feltz shipyard in Hamburg, a boat builder with a known reputation for building sturdy and reliable ships. Apart from numerous certificates with which it was issued, the well planned technical installation is clear evidence of the quality of the ship.
Practicality and coziness of the interior layout have been given preference over the use of expensive materials. The social life on board will largely take place in the saloon at the back of the ship. Separated from the salon are the sleeping quarters, where part of the crew can retire to enjoy their well-earned rest. Two toilets, a shower and hot water are essential to ensure the necessary comfort for all, and a good spirit on board. The ship’s central heating system is designed to work day and night in order to avoid condensation, and ensure ample possibility to dry slickers, clothing and boots. Offshore suits, scuba and other watersport equipment are available on board. The yacht meets all specifications proposed by the Antarctic Treaty of 1991. Our dinghy landing crafts will give us the flexibility to set foot on very isolated shores.
