Project Ragnar, 68 Metre – Conversion from an offshore supply vessel into a Luxurious Explorer Yacht!
Icon Yachts is following the success of MY Legend with the announcement of the very exciting new conversion project called Project RAGNAR.
The donor vessel (previously called “SANABORG”) was initially built as an ice breaking multipurpose support supply vessel in Holland in 2012. Entering the ICON shed in July 2017, she is now ready for her extreme make-over!
Designed by the talented Englishmen at RWD yacht design, the owner is excited about her unique style which was inspired by medieval war craftsmanship, combined with modern sleek lines and British heritage.
She will be one of the few real explorer luxury super yachts with a certified ICE Class A1 super hull when her conversion is finished.
When we look at explorer yachts, some yachts may have the looks, but only a few have the actual capabilities to cruise in remote areas. Project RAGNAR is LY3 classed with arctic explorer capabilities, full ice breaking functionality with its unique ICE class PC5 rated electric driven ice pods, giving the vessel its incredible range of 6,000 nautical miles meaning this vessel can go to the most remote areas of the planet.
Originally built to confront rough weather conditions, she actually has a surplus of power – “As strong as a rhino disguised as a swan”
The scope of the full conversion, work includes the increase of luxury accommodation areas, a functional designated deck for toys (a dream toy room) with a fully certified helicopter landing pad.
RAGNAR will feature an incredible array of toys onboard:
• A luxury Ripsaw EV2
• Helicopter EC145
• 2 x 8 Metre Tenders
• 2 x 6 Metre RIBS
• A Sea Explorer submarine for 2 x Passengers
• 2 x Jet Skis
• 2 x Laser Sailing Boats
• 1 x Castoldi 26 RIB
• And much more!
During the conversion, several tanks will be removed and converted into a Leisure / Spa area. RAGNAR also has a ski room to store all your ski gear, a boot room as well as a swimming pool and a jacuzzi.
Due to its shallow draft of only 3.15 Metres the vessel can travel close to shores and beaches, and thanks to its air-cooled generator the possibility to beach the vessel has become a reality.
Project RAGNAR is a twin ice pod propelled diesel electric motor yacht designed to accommodate 12 guests in 6 staterooms.
