The Green Expedition is a collaboration between designer Dennis Ingemansson and with the German based Ned Ship Group, known for their experience with zero emission yachts and solar powered boats. Built from steel hull and composite superstructure, Green Expedition is a 65-metre explorer vessel with an Ice class hull (1A class), gross tonnage of 1,400 GT and globetrotting range of 6,000 nm at the speed of 12 knots, according to YachtHarbour.

As the Green Expedition is eco-friendly, her green features include : up to 210 square meters area of solar cells, including 60 square meters which can be added by transformation of her helicopter landing platform (such as Eurocopter 135 or similar size with maximum helicopter length of 11 metres), retractable wind turbines, skysails, onboard recyclable systems and retractable wave turbines. Accommodation on board is for 8 guests in 4 guest's rooms plus 4 guests across double owner's suite, as well as crew of 12 people.

Whether you’re going through rougher areas like Antarctica or Alaska, or sailing through enormous waves in Barents Sea, she is built to endure. All equipment is stored indoors, and there is no risk of losing the helicopter or tenders during stormy weather. The skysail allows for energy efficient movement together with the retractable wind turbines. The Captain’s deck is designed as an ultra-modern penthouse, where guests can enjoy dinner and mingle with a 360 degrees ocean view. For exploration, the diving center features submarines and a decompression chamber, making it a green expedition icon.
