The new 116m Kleven-built explorer yacht Ulysses delivered


Bigger and better

The 116m explorer superyacht Ulysses has been delivered to her owner.

The vessel is now on her maiden voyage after four years of construction.

The new larger explorer yacht has been built at Kleven shipyards in Norway. The hull and superstructure were finished in December 2016. The vessel was sent to Bremerhaven in Germany for interior and exterior outfitting at Dorries Maritime.


The new explorer superyacht is taking the place of the 107m M/Y Andromeda (formerly Ulysses), also built by Kleven.

The new M/Y Ulysses uses the Kleven MT 5006 mkII ESV platform with naval architecture from Norwegian company Marin Teknikk.

The new Ulysses is built for serious exploration expeditions and has a helicopter hangar that can house a Bell 429 and a large selection of tenders including a 21m Princess 68 yacht housed inside the forward deck.
