a motorized sailing ship used on R. Amundsen’s polar expedition.

The Maud was built in Norway in 1917. It was 29.8 m long, 10.6 m wide, and had a displacement of approximately 800 tons. In 1918–20, Amundsen sailed on the Maud through the northern sea route (northeast passage), making two winter stopovers. In 1922–24, the Maud drifted from Wrangel Island to the Novosibirsk Islands. A bay along the northeastern shore of the Taimyr Peninsula was named Mod after the Maud.
