Sail Aboard the

Hans Hansson

with Cheesemans' Ecology Safaris

General Information

The Hans Hansson was originally built for the Norwegian Lifeboat Association and in 2005 underwent a major renovation, including renewing the interior to provide comfortable accommodations for our twelve passengers. She is ideally suited for extended voyages in comfort and safety anywhere in the world. Although the vessel is primarily a boat suited for work rather than a luxury yacht, she has a comfortable main salon, library/recreational area, and kitchenette.

The crew likes to create an informal and relaxed atmosphere. The crew, leaders, and passengers share the same spaces, fostering camaraderie and the sharing of information and experiences.


The interior of Hans Hansson has been entirely rebuilt with modern lining materials. Today she is equipped as a comfortable yet functional expedition vessel. Creature comforts include central heating, washing machine, tumble dryer, and flushing toilets. The layout places all passenger accommodation in the forward half of the vessel and separate from the crew working areas aft which include the galley with separate crews mess, laundry and access to machinery spaces and storage. Cabins are outfitted with the essential amenities you’ll need to feel comfortable throughout your voyage.
