The 70-metre ice class vessel has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure and would be driven by diesel electric propulsion that would allow her to cruise in some of the coldest waters on the planet. Paying homage to Pfeiffer's spirit of adventure and exploration, the long-range vessel could cover in-excess of 7000 miles in fully stabilised comfort.
