Fantasy Fact #5370

Amid the spectacular scenery of the far north, the Singaporean owner plodded his Vripack yacht through ice jams and avoided hungry polar bears in his quest to follow the perilous 19th-century Northwest Passage. Twice!

Designer's note

Vripack - Bart Bouwhuis

With more than 7,300 designs under our belt, we know that an exploration yacht does not need to look like one, as long as she has been designed with an explorer's heart and a no-nonsense attitude. The trick is hidden in hundreds of smart solutions like: an efficient hull design fit for its purpose, remarkable steering capabilities, access to all necessary back-up systems essential for cruising long distances and a smart layout both for the owner as well as for the crew. I can proudly say that Latitude has been designed and engineered to defy extreme circumstances. She is one of many Vripack-designed yachts that have conquered the Northwest Passage.

Bart Bouwhuis, Creative Director of Vripack

Engineering highlight




The Latitude is equipped with propulsion nozzles which are used to improve the propulsion efficiency. The hydrodynamic design of the shroud, which is shaped like a foil, reduces the fuel consumption and increases the range as a result.
