Discover some of the world's most interesting yachts and exciting sailing moments with the superyacht owners who have made them a reality in 2018...

Kjell Inge Røkke

The Norwegian billionaire first went to sea on a fishing boat at the age of 18 and was soon manning trawlers in some of the roughest, toughest seas in the world, off Alaska. Now, at 60, having made his fortune in shipping and fisheries, he’s building one of the roughest, toughest expedition research vessels ever conceived.

The 182.9 metre Project REV is Røkke’s gift to the seas that have given him so much. It was announced last year, but it was only in 2018 that more sensational details about its design and construction were released, exclusively to Boat International. State-of-the-art sonar, a catch-and-release trawling system and moon pool are just some of the tantalising details.

He says:REV will be a platform for gathering knowledge. I would like to welcome researchers, environmental groups and other institutions on board, to evolve innovative solutions in challenges connected to the seas.”

We say: Mind-bending technology, towering ambition and lavish funds make this vessel a game-changer for ocean conservation.
