Partnership Spotlight: Helly Hansen


Seabourn is proud to offer our guests the products and services of a select group of companies whose dedication to superior quality, exceptional service and consistent customer satisfaction matches our own. That is why we chose outdoor apparel company Helly Hansen, as our “Official Apparel Partner” for our expanding offerings in Expedition travel through our forthcoming ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ships Seabourn Venture and Seabourn Pursuit, as well as our optional Expedition experiences program.

Helly Hansen has been outfitting professionals working in the elements for 142 years since its founder, sea captain Helly Juell Hansen, created the first supple waterproof fabrics to keep his crew dry and protected out on the water. The company currently offers a selection of high-quality sports and outdoor apparel, footwear and accessories. Helly Hansen gear is worn and trusted by professionals on oceans, mountains, and in some of the world’s harshest environments.

Thanks to our partnership, Helly Hansen is the sole provider of outdoor gear for guests and the Expedition Teams. On sailings to the Polar regions, Seabourn will provide complimentary Helly Hansen jackets and backpacks to our guests. The PolarShield parkas have been custom-designed by Seabourn and Helly Hansen, featuring a Helly Tech® outer shell coupled with a removable insulator puff jacket inside. A custom-designed Helly Hansen waterproof WaterShield backpack will also be provided. Each item name includes the word “shield” to pay homage to the Seabourn brand shield in its logo.

In addition to the PolarShield and WaterShield gear for guests, the Seabourn Expedition Teams will also be protected from the elements with Helly Hansen gear and uniforms.

Guests will receive PolarShield and WaterShield items with Seabourn Venture’s Extraordinary Expeditions on select sailings in the Arctic and Antarctic regions in 2022‑2023.
