Ocean Independence has welcomed the 167-foot ice-class explorer yacht Northern Sun to the charter fleet.

Itineraries are available in Thailand, with a year-round home base in Phuket.

Northern Sun was built in 1976 as a marine research vessel. She was converted to a luxury yacht for 12 guests in six staterooms. She now has a sundeck with a hot tub and gymnasium, a salon with a separate games room, and an extended swim platform for water sports. A water slide is on board as well.

What's the lowest weekly base rate to charter Northern Sun? $133,000
