Hutting 54 “Polaris”

The Hutting 54 ‘Polaris’ is a custom-made, Aluminium sailing yacht, specially designed for even the most extreme sail destinations of the owners. Freezing the Explorer sail yacht in the ice off the coast of Greenland for months was just one of the dreams they have realized.

For many years in a row, the owners have traveled with their Hutting 54 Polaris into areas as Disko Bay in Greenland, the Newfoundland waters off the coast of Canada, the Icelandic waters as well as the total opposite: the Caribbean.

For this reason, extra features are added to both the interior and the exterior to make the sailing in extreme and various climate conditions as safe and comfortable as possible with this explorer sailing yacht.

To ensure maximum safety and comfort, the Hutting 54-Polaris has many special features. With its extra thick Alustar aluminium hull, 70mm melamine-foam isolation material and many extra, smart storage capacity for food, water and fuel, the yacht is well-prepared for the ice. A reliable multi-way heating system, with a triple back up power source ensures comfortable conditions even at -40°C. Whereas the light and open interior of the Polaris brings you close to the beautiful nature that surrounds you.
