The Norwegian explorer Børge Ousland (with crew) was the first to do a successful Arctic circumnavigation in one season in 2010. Read more here Northern Passage ? 2010 :: Ousland
For this circumnavigation he chose a Corsair 31 (A small GRP trimaran)

A presentation he made before setting off
This is a fun picture "Explaining the nature of our journey under the mighty bow of the «Fram»."
Fram was built by Colin Archer for the explorer Fridtjof Nansen in 1892.
She was designed to freeze into the Arctic ice and survive, building material is wood..
And the first vessel to transit the Northwest Passage was Gjøa.
Built of wood as a freighter in 1872 in 1901 the polar explorer Roald Amundsen bouht her and adapted her for the expedition through the Northwest Passage.
(an 13 hp engine was installed for propulsion)
