M/V Alaskan Legend

M/V Alaskan Legend

M/V Alaskan Legend has accommodations for eight guests in four private ensuite cabins plus separate cabin and bathroom/shower for three crew. The very comfortable main salon is tastefully decorated with richly finished fine mahogany throughout as well as new carpet and furnishings. Interior décor is custom designed by Marci Collins.

All mattresses on berths are premium grade memory foam (many of the Alaskan Legend’s guests commented that their berth on the boat was more comfortable than their mattress at home!). All bedspreads, pillows, throws and fabrics were designer specified and custom made. Our guests’ comfort while aboard the MV Alaskan Legend is foremost and the yacht has all amenities to guarantee the most pleasant and safe voyage possible.

The main salon has a large 3-cushion sofa across and next to two leather recliner chairs. Newly installed Hunter Douglas Roman shades, mahogany valences, lamps and bookcase accent the main salon.

The extra large flat bow deck area is perfect for watching whales or Dall’s porpoise off the bow and is extremely well set up for photographers. The massive aft swim/activity platform offers easy boarding of tenders and sea kayaks as well providing an excellent location for fishing for large halibut. The completely level deck is also a great platform to catch excellent low angle photography of nearby whales and other marine mammals with plenty of room for multiple camera tripods.

Captain and Crew

Captain Robert Frampton is pleased to be again joining the crew aboard the M/V Alaskan Legend for another season of exploring Southeast Alaska. Growing up along the shores of Puget Sound, he started messing around with boats as a youngster and stayed on the coast retiring from Alaska Department of Fish and Game as a research vessel captain. His knowledge of Southeast Alaskan waters will surely unlock many secret gems along the Inside Passage.
