The Rembrandt van Rijn is well suited for expedition cruising among small islands in the Arctic and offers good open deck viewing areas.

Originally built as a herring lugger in the early twentieth century, the vessel was rebuilt as a three-masted passenger sailing schooner in 1994, and sailed in Spitsbergen (1994-96) and the Galapagos (1998-2001). She then underwent a complete rebuilding and refurbishment programme until 2011.

The Rembrandt van Rijn has an experienced crew of seven, including two guides. Two Zodiac inflatables are used for shore landings and wildlife viewing in areas that would otherwise be inaccessible.
