Built by Brooke Yachts, UK and designed by Terence Disdale, 39.6m GLACIAL BEAR (previously known as SCOUT II) is a sturdy and well-proven world cruising explorer yacht.

From 2016 to 2018 GLACIAL BEAR has undergone multi-million dollar upgrade and refit. The project included a 5m extension aft and a 1m extension forward and the installation of a new mast. Her bow was reshaped, all key machinery and systems were replaced or remanufactured, including Zero Speed stabilizers, new generators and air conditioning. All work was detailed and photographed throughout and approved by Lloyds.

At 397 gross tons, GLACIAL BEAR is unrivalled in her class in terms of volume, performance, deck space and versatility.
