Viking Octantis

Expedition vessels for Viking.

CC OCTANTIS Mediterranean Flag Flying Horiz

Especially designed and developed for comfortable expeditions in the Arctic, Antarctica and North America’s Great Lakes. The Viking Octantis has a length of 205 meters and is the largest vessel built by VARD so far,

Characteristics of the vessel are a straight bow, longer hull and state-of-the-art fin stabilizers that allows the ship to glide over the waves for the calmest possible journey. The ice-strengthened Polar Class 6 hull will provide the safest way to explore in polar regions, and the u-tank stabilizers will significantly decrease rolling when the ship is stationary.
