The expedition yacht Alucia, which was used by David Attenborough and his team on Blue Planet II is now available to charter

The 55m research and exploration vessel starred in the hit BBC show Blue Planet II, which aired last winter. Filming shows Attenborough and his team on board – watch the video below.

The 56m Alucia served as a mobile studio for Attenborough and base for the team of oceanographers to launch and pilot submersibles.

The Alucia appeared in one of the most memorable clips from the BBC series, when David Attenborough boarded the Triton submarine, the latest in submersible technology, and explored the Great Barrier Reef.
