Ventus Australis is Latin for "Southern Wind" and reflects the distinctive weather of Tierra del Fuego. A factor that has long determined the region's socio-cultural development and that so impressed the early mariners who endeavoured to explore Patagonia's southernmost waterways.
Purpose built for exploring the remote southern tip of South America, all aspects of the 210-passenger ship -- including size, length, draft and engine power -- are designed to give the Ventus Australis extreme manoeuvrability and versatility to navigate the narrow fjords and channels where no other cruise ship can venture.
Asenav, the internationally acclaimed Chilean shipyard, is responsible for creating the Ventus Australis, just as they have done for three other Australis expedition vessels.
