About the Ship
The Hans Hansson was originally built for the Norwegian Lifeboat Association and in 2005 underwent a major renovation, including renewing the interior to provide comfortable accommodations for 12 passengers. With an informal and relaxed atmosphere on board, she has a comfortable main saloon, library & recreational area, and kitchenette.
Being a small vessel, she is able to anchor in small coves making after dinner Zodiac cruising and/or night landings possible, depending on weather and location. Hans Hansson also has a citizen science program that guests may participate in.
