Akademik Ioffe

Akademik Ioffe and Akademik Sergey Vavilov are sister ships built in 1989 and 1988 respectively. They were designed for polar research and are now the only scientific vessels still participating in marine studies. With extensive upgrades and expansions, these ships are not only safe and ice strengthened, they are comfortable, modern and very spacious. Both ships carry less than 100 passengers. They traverse open water crossings with ease due to their speed and integrated internal ballast system, resulting in a great reduction from severe rolling in heavy seas. As such, they are the most stable vessels travelling to Antarctica.
