Details
Renowned "Damien II" 50ft steel schooner, designed by Michel Joubert and purpose built for high latitude expeditions, "Philos" has proven herself in the most demanding environments on the planet including 2 transits of the Northwest Passage and many expeditions to Antarctica. Heavily constructed by Meta in France, "Philos" has an electric fully retractable swing keel which reduces her draft to only 4ft' when raised. The design enables the vessel to be raised up by the pressure of ice rather than crushed, and there is excellent rudder and drive train protection. The schooner rig ensures easy handling with less crew and fast passage making with speeds often in excess of 10 knots. Engine is a 75 hp Perkins 4.236 diesel, serviced regularly.
Accommodation includes 2 double cabins plus 3 good sized single berths, a well equipped galley, enclosed bathroom and huge dinette. The fo'c'sle has a water-tight bulkhead and serves as a large storage area and workshop.
