Four Seasons Explorer

Four Seasons Explorer is a 39-metre (129-foot) catamaran that offers 10 staterooms and one Explorer suite. It has a draft of 1.6 metres (5.2 feet) and cruises at an average speed of 14 knots. Purpose-designed and built by Image Marine in Henderson, Western Australia, Explorer’s three spacious decks include the main deck, where you will find recreation and dive facilities and guest accommodation; an upper deck with a restaurant (offering indoor and outdoor dining), a lounge and a library; and a top deck for lounging, sunbathing and wellness. The catamaran is equipped with two rescue boats and two tenders for recreational purposes, and is supported by a purpose-designed dive boat.
