Overview – Our exquisitely refurbished 12-passenger expedition vessel, the Cape Race is a deep-sea trawler converted to an expedition yacht reminiscent of the bygone era of tramp steamers. As she was designed originally to fish year round in the world’s toughest seas, she has the integral strength to travel pole to pole in safety and the utmost comfort.

Public Areas – She has been redesigned to have many open, spacious areas outside and in.

Meals are enjoyed in the mahogany paneled grand saloon featuring an old-fashioned wood-stove and library. The extensive crew quarters are in the aft of the vessel.
