You’re gonna need a bigger boat!
— Chief Brody // JAWS

Big news! We got a Swan 59! Starting in February 2019, 59 North Sailing will be operating both Isbjorn, our beloved Swan 48, and Ice Bear, our new-to-us German Frers-designed Swan 59! There's lots more to this story of course, which Andy will be telling on the podcast, but for now note that the passages below indicate whether it'll be sailed on Isbjorn or Ice Bear, or in a few cases BOTH boats, and who will aboard as skipper & mate. The new boat can take 6 crew, so we've added some spaces to previously sold out trips, and opened up the legs on which Isbjorn will sail in company with Ice Bear. Read the blog posts below for more details!

Ice Bear // Frers Swan 59

After our expedition to the far north, we're returning back to the warm sun and cool breezes of the Caribbean for 2019 - but it's a long way back! We'll depart Dublin, Ireland, bound for Portugal, our last passage of 2018, where we'll haul out Isbjorn in Lisbon for the holidays. Then, right after we ring in the New Year, we'll set sail for Las Palmas & the big, 3,000-mile Trade Wind passage to Antigua and back to familiar waters. Then it's Dominican Republic & Key West, on to Bermuda, and north to the Nova Scotia & Newfoundland! We end the season in July in Annapolis.
