This one of a kind vessel is the epitome of expedition cruising, equipped with some brilliant features relating to both design and onboard facilities. Named after the co-founder of Aurora Expeditions
and world-renowned Australian explorer, Greg Mortimer the ship well and truly represents the ideology of Greg Mortimer the adventurer.
A commitment to exploring the wild is evident throughout, with features including two hydraulic viewing platforms which fold out to enable optimal viewing with no obstructions. She uses the latest nautical technology and design in order to offer an immersive experience with minimal environmental impact. For example, the sophisticated X-Bow - used on more than 100 vessels in the shipping industry - has been utliised. This allows the Greg Mortimer to take on waves from underneath instead of from above, allowing for a smooth and fast journey.
Other aspects include the sophisticated virtual-anchor, which means the ship can stop still at any point without impacting on the sea bed. Her design also means she uses less fuel, meaning improved efficiency and lower emissions into the surrounding sea and air. Aurora Expeditions have also considered light pollution, and have minimised this so as not to disturb the local wildlife.
