MS Villa was built-to-order for the Norwegian Coastal Administration. Prior to February 2019, her mission was to service lighthouses and buoys along the rough Norwegian coast. Rugged yet luxurious, MS Villa is the perfect blend of a working vessel and expedition platform.

MS Villa boasts 120m² of above-deck space and 160m² of space below-decks; the 10-ton crane can operate in both areas. This allows for ample storage and protection of sensitive equipment in a dry environment.  As an ice-strengthened ship (ice class B), with an installed ice keel and ice propeller, MS Villa is designed to operate in icy waters.

All guest accommodations are being completely redesigned in 2020 with expedition operations and comfort in mind – the spacious cabins are equipped with multiple 230V electrical sockets for all photography and videography recharging needs.

Whether it’s an expedition with private clients or a film contract, MS Villa is a very flexible ship. We look forward to exceeding your expectations.
