“Hurtigruten” choose Polarcirkel Boats

The famous coastal steamers running people and cargo along the Norwegian coast since 1893 is called “Hurtig-ruten” (The Fast Route). It is no longer the fastest means of transportation, but remains one of the main tourist attractions in the country, running the route year round.

One of their latest exploration ships, M/S Fram, recently acquired two Polarcirkel Boats for sightseeing tours in arctic regions and on Svalbard and Greenland. These boats were custom built, approx. 7m long and powered by a 200hp Yamaha outboard. With seating for 12 passengers, measurements to fit Fram’s cargo hold and a single lifting point, these boats are proving to be a great success for the famous cruise line.

We really enjoy these safe and versatile Polarcirkel Boats! On the latest cruise, more than 90% of the passengers have booked tours with the boats, and we have already had many unforgettable experiences close to nature in some of the world’s most fascinating areas. The crew of M/S Fram also recently got a great thrill ride in these boats, and this was a great success, smiles Erik Eng, Chief Officer aboard the “Hurtigruten” M/S Fram.
