About the Hebridean Sky
Formerly sailing under the name ‘Sea Explorer’, the Hebridean Sky underwent a 6 million dollar refurbishment early in 2016 and the new boat hit the waters in June. The vessel has been known for years for its excellent on board service and refined elegance.
The atmosphere on board the Hebridean Sky is perhaps similar to a large luxury yacht. There is always a strong feeling of camaraderie aboard the ship and passengers will love the state of the art equipment. The ship has an ice-strengthened hull and is fully stabilized for passengers that suffer from sea sickness.
The vessel provides excellent fuel efficiency, state of the art navigation and a small fleet of zodiacs, making it the perfect luxury exploration ship! All cabins are spacious and light with windows, TVs and private en suites and the public areas include a live lounge, library and fitness center.
