What an amazing listing. A Gentleman's Expedition ship. Your very own icebreaker to explore anywhere on earth. This ship is the real "Tin Tin" experience. She was launched as fisheries inspection vessel, serving in the cold waters of Greenland. After retirement in the 80's she was used as a private expedition vessel completing Trans-Atlantic voyages and adventures. Now owned by a dedicated yachtsman, she has been made comfortable to follow the race circuit as mothership for a traditional 12 metre yacht. Daphne does this with immense style and presence. Don't let the traditional ships wheel fool you, Daphne is at heart a very easy to manoeuvre vessel with good modern pilot features such as joystick steering and modern navigation electronics. She has a large tender, easily launched from a boom, good anchoring gear and comfortable updated interior. Bring out your inner Shackleton with a true ice breaker ship.
