Narvalo is a 134 meter, six-deck, three-masted polar class sailing yacht, featuring a 2409 ft² aircraft hangar, having enough space to house and protect up to three small helicopters, an iNOVA submarine, and the Evolution Expedition Vehicle, also designed by Steve Kozloff.
The landing area permits safe aircraft operations during rough conditions. Two large cranes can load and off-load special research equipment. Below the aircraft hangar is the full-beam beach club with extending decks at the water level.
The handrails and doors are heated to minimize icing problems. Amidships is an indoor swimming pool, deck, and a retractable atrium dome.
The full-beam 2000 ft² owners suite located below the forward mast has panoramic views. Narvalo has 2 master suites and can host 14 guests and a crew of 20. She is equipped with two free-fall lifeboats that can be deployed in the worst of conditions. A spacious flybridge with full command and control houses a shaded lounging area for up to six people. Aft of the flybridge is the spa.
The full-beam garage can handle multiple tenders and other water toys. She can cruise at 12kts for 6000 nautical miles with diesel power only. The range can be extended with careful management of her hybrid diesel-electric systems and sail power. Under sail power only, Narvalo can reach 22kts. Her ice-class hull can easily break through moderate ice conditions. The interior space has multi-levels, curved walls, and a multitude of large windows providing a panoramic view.
