From humble beginnings as an icebreaking tug to a seriously cool Viking-inspired superyacht, Ragnar might be unconventional but is nothing short of awesome. Built for wild adventures in some of the world’s most remote locations, she is just as capable cruising the frozen fields of the Antarctic as she is hopping her way around the blissful islands of Oceania. Exclusively available to charter with Burgess, she has a jam-packed cruising calendar that will see her circumnavigate the globe over the next two years.
Born to be Wild: Ragnar Reveals Her Adventurous Itinerary For 2021-2023
Ragnar is tough - much like her namesake Viking warrior - designed to tackle the harshest climates while cosseting guests in a warm and beautifully appointed interior. Equipped with a steel hull and ice-breaking propellers, she can shimmy her way out of icy traps when passing through the poles with surplus power providing peace of mind in the case of extreme weather. An impressive range of 6,000 nautical miles makes longer transits a breeze too - a true go-anywhere explorer.
Adventure is at the very heart of Ragnar’s spirit. From whale watching to heli-skiing and zipping along the coastline atop a snowmobile, no two days are ever the same. In fact, Ragnar’s toy box is equipped for just about every climate. With a BigBo amphibious ATV, SeaDoos, ski scooters, jet boards, and a giant slide, there’s never a dull moment. Ragnar is also helicopter capable with an Airbus EC145 and landing pad, much to the delight of snow enthusiasts who can be whisked off to the mountain for a spot of heli-skiing, setting down on fresh untrodden snow (there’s even a heated boot room on board).
As an icebreaker, conquering the polar regions comes naturally to Ragnar, but she'll be spending plenty of time in warmer waters too. With over 551 square metres of exterior deck space, not to mention a pool, there's ample room for guests to kick back and soak up the sun.
Inside, her chalet-style interiors offer a welcome retreat after a day spent exploring ashore. Inspired by cosy British pubs, dark chocolate walnut panels line the walls, complemented by chic leather Chesterfields, chevron parquet flooring and an open fireplace. Guests can gather around the bar each evening sharing stories of the day's escapades or head to the observation lounge to watch the sunset - the best seat in the house.
Ragnar can sleep up to 12 guests across nine cabins, with two master suites in pride of place on the upper deck, four double suites below, a twin cabin for staff and an office that can convert into a second twin. Unlike the rest of the yacht, each guest cabin is finished in bleached oak and a neutral palette creating an oasis of calm in which to unwind.
Ragnar is an unbeatable option for adventure seekers in search of once-in-a-life-time experiences on board a truly one-of-a-kind vessel. Exclusively available for charter with Burgess, a week on board starts from €525,000.
