Designing a state-of-the-art expedition ship

When we set out to build the Coral Adventurer, we wanted a ship that would last us decades.  Our search for build quality and technology took us to the shipbuilders of Norway who have a long history of building durable ships for the harsh environments of the North Sea.   We then looked deep inside to capture the requirements of our guests, our crew and the areas we sail to.   The result is a happy marriage of modern shipbuilding technology and cruising Australian style.
