Nautical charts once indicated remote unchartered regions with the phrase “Here be the dragons". "That’s what MV Alucia is all about. We built her to go find the dragons.”

Conceived for ambitious and extended missions of global exploration and science, Alucia can operate in every region, from tropical to polar, and has done just that. A suite of advanced shipboard technology and submersibles enables Alucia to explore, map and sample a realm that is mostly unknown, even today. She is also outfitted with state-of-the-art film-making, communication and media capability.

Alucia is the consummate expedition ship. She combines the elegance and luxury of an ice classed superyacht with the capabilities of a modern oceanographic research ship. The staterooms are very spacious, light and airy, and the main salon has floor to ceiling windows enhancing the views from her luxury interior. Designed for ease of living and comfort even in the most extreme conditions, Alucia is in a class of her own
