Launching in 2021, Sylvia Earle has been purpose-built for expeditions to the most remote places on earth. She will accommodate on average 126 passengers per voyage, with many Zodiacs which can be boarded by 4 dedicated sea-level platforms. There is also an Activities platform and a range of adventure activities offered include kayaking, diving, climbing and ski-touring. Experience the Glass Atrium Lounge inside the bow of the ship, featuring huge windows and superb views, and enjoy the heated saltwater open-air swimming pool and Jacuzzis.

Sylvia Earle features the revolutionary Ulstein X-Bow which allows the ship to cut through the waves in a way which reduces impact and wave-induced vibrations. It also allows the ship to remain more stable during poor weather conditions, increasing comfort for passengers. Sylvia Earle boasts one of the lowest polluting marine engines in the world due to its low energy consumption, high fuel-efficiency and streamlined design. The ship has virtual anchoring to hold its position, which protects the sea floor and minimises damage caused by conventional anchors.
