This vessel was designed for and built by Ørskov Christensen Shipyard, Denmark. The vessel was delivered to Arctic Umiaq Line, Greenland, in 1992. Further two sister vessels have been built to the same design. Two of the ships, Sarfaq Itt uk and Sarpik Ittuk were lengthened in 2000. They are fitted out for short international cruises and ferry operations along the coastline of Greenland.
