The newest in diesel electric engineering allows 8500 miles range at 55 L per hour from 5 power sources, silently and environment friendly. A unique and very strong and sea worthy yacht for absolute autonomy
Oscar Wisting was Roald Amundsen's most trusted expedition companion. For 16 years he worked for Amundsen on board the Fram, the Maud and the airship Norge. Together they were the first to reach both the South and North Poles. MY Wisting was originally commissioned by the Norwegian Navy as HM5.
She was built in 1978 by Voldnes Skipverf in Norway as one of 6 Wisting class naval supply vessels built for the Navy. Between 2005 and 2007 HM5 Wisting underwent a conversion from naval vessel to explorer yacht. The conversion fulfilled the current owner's ambition to create a sturdy and versatile yacht with innovative engineering features, capable and equipped for world cruising.
The interior was designed to have a Scandinavian style look and feel consistent with her heritage. The conversion included replacement of the superstructure and all mechanical and electrical systems apart from the rudder and steering gear. MY Wisting is maintained to a very high standard. She was, until August 2010 commercially registered MCA Large yacht code but is now privately owned and VAT paid.
