M/V Northern Song

M/V Northern Song

Safe, functional and comfortable, the 84-foot world-class expedition yacht, Northern Song, was designed and constructed from steel with the same rugged integrity of vessels built for Alaska’s renowned commercial fisheries. It offers an ideal balance of public and personal space with ample outdoor areas for play and lounging.

When guests step on board, they experience the “wow” of the expansive open design. You won’t feel crowded on this boat. You’ll enjoy the spacious salon, covered decks and excellent viewing areas. You’ll love your quarters, too! Choose from four beautiful guest staterooms, each with its own private bathroom and shower.

Northern Song is a very family friendly boat with plenty of room for three generations to spread out and enjoy the journey. The vessel is an excellent choice for a couples group Alaska small ship cruise as well as corporate yacht charters. She offers an ideal balance of public and personal space with ample outdoor areas for play and lounging and a spacious salon with a fully equipped media suite. The huge pilot house can seat 10 for whale spotting and back seat driving.
