Stats: 68.2m, Royal Niestern Sanderm, 2012/2020, 12 guests and 17 crew
Ragnar isn't your typical superyacht. After a serious stint at Icon Yachts, this former ice-breaker was reborn as a tough explorer with adventure at its core.
She houses an armada of toys and tenders made for every climate imaginable, including a BigBo amphibious ATV, Airbus EC145 helicopter, heli-skiing equipment, four Sea-Doos, four ski scooters, six Seabobs, a multipurpose island and a giant slide.
At the outset, the interior was to be kept simple, but the concept evolved over time, a decision that extended the conversion by a few months but also made Ragnar an even better candidate for charter. British studio RWD was awarded the contract and set out to design a cosy, British pub-style interior with dark walnut panelling, Chesterfield sofas and fireplaces. The owner wanted the feeling of a ski chalet to welcome guests upon their return from heliskiing, ski-dooing or whatever excursion the crew had in store for that day.
Other highlights include an observation deck, the perfect spot for observing breaching whales, an aft deck dominated by a raised pool, and a spa. Ragnar can accommodate up to 12 guests in total across eight cabins with two master suites, four main deck doubles, a twin suite for those with staff in tow and an office that can convert into an additional twin.
Ragnar is manged by Burgess with charters starting from $525,000 per week.
