I’m Amarok, your exploration ship

I’ve been sailing the seas of the world for 20 years: discover who I am and the little secrets of the life aboard me!

Who am I?

I am a 16-metres aluminum schooner. Launched in 1999 by naval architect Michel Joubert, the designer and first owner, who made the passage from Northwest Greenland to Alaska in 2012 with the polar explorer Janusz Kurbiel.
