MS Brim

Our first ship MS Brim is named after the Old Norse word for 'breaking wave'. The ship was launched in the fall of 2019 and Christened in Tromsø. Our second ship Berg has been renamed in the summer of 2022 from Bard.


Ms Berg

Our ships are among the most flexible boats in the world and can be recharged at any port. The batteries can have enough capacity to run for 8 hours at a speed of 5 knots.

Built with recycled and recyclable aluminum, the ships are lightweight and energy efficient. With comfortable lounges, panoramic windows and several outdoor decks, guests can enjoy spectacular views without the hassle and pollution.

Our vision is to have a ship that is both sustainable and the ultimate vessel to explore nature and deliver a high-end experience for our guests.

The ships are designed by award-winning industrial designer Einar Hareide and built by Maritime Partner in Ålesund.

In 2022 we will launch our third ship: MS Brisen. Innovation continues, both on the technical parts of the ship, as well as the guest experience. Some changes that we have in store for MS Brisen versus MS Brim & MS Berg are:

  • Carbon fibre hull instead of aluminium
  • Forward-facing windows next to the entrance
  • Better & more efficient heating and aircon systems
  • Fully electric propulsion with innovative engine & new battery design
  • Larger indoor saloons with better & more flexible seating arrangement

We strive to improve our ships with every design and we acknowledge that there is a constant necessity for critical thinking and innovation to make each ship better for the guest & less polluting for the environment.
