Hurtigruten® has a 130-year legacy of leading successful expeditions to some of the most remote areas in the world. The company chooses Yamaha four-stroke outboard motors for its fleet of sturdy inflatable boats used to take passengers exploring off the larger ships, and currently has 55 Yamaha F60s among three of its larger ships.

“We’ve been using Yamaha power since 2002 for these expeditions,” said Karin Strand, Vice President of Development, Hurtigruten Expeditions. “We’ve been very happy because they are super reliable. We can always trust Yamaha, and that’s a very comforting feeling to have when you are traveling through polar regions. They just work – every time.”
