An exciting day at ICON YACHTS as the shipyard launched their latest conversion explorer super yacht the 68 meter Project Ragnar. The 2,450 GT ICE-breaker explorer superyacht emerged from her covered dry dock off her intimidating exterior style designed by RWD yacht design.
The original vessel, ‘Sanaborg,’ was initially built as an ice-breaking multi-purpose support supply vessel in Holland in 2012. Ragnar has been transformed into a stunning and unique Arctic explorer superyacht.
Designed by RWD in the UK, her unique style draws on a fusion of inspirations including medieval war craftsmanship with sleep likes of contemporary design and British heritage. Ragnar combines the capabilities of a serious, ice-breaking Arctic explorer, with the comfort and luxury of a world-class superyacht.
She will be a very rare example of a genuine explorer luxury superyacht with a certified ICE Class A1 super hull. An LY3-classed vessel with Arctic explorer capabilities, Project RAGNAR owes her ice-breaking capability to unique ICE class PC5-rated electric-driven ice pods. She offers an incredible range of 6,000 nautical miles, enabling her owners and guests to explore the most remote areas of the planet.
The 2-year conversion includes an increase of luxury accommodation areas, a functional designated deck for toys, and a fully-certified helicopter landing pad amongst others.
Ragnar will be available for charter via Burgess yachts.
