First delivered in 2012 by Royal Niestern Sander, this 68.2 metre explorer began her life at sea as a no-frills support vessel for the fossil fuel industry.

Ragnar's swimming pool
The C deck of Ragnar features a large swimming pool surrounded by an al fresco bar, barbecue and seating area for soaking up the sunshine.
Ragnar owner's suite
Ragnar can accommodate 12 guests and 16 crew on board. She features two identical owner’s cabins both connected to a private terrace as well as the forward observation lounge for taking the views.
Ragnar main saloon
The RWD-designed living spaces on Ragnar are chalet-inspired, featuring design elements picked from cosy British pubs, brooding Scottish castles and utilitarian Scandinavian interiors. The area features a drinks bar and lounge area warmed by a fireplace. Unqiue design elements in this space include a giant wooden galleon helm and leather panelling embossed with the coats of arms of famous explorers.
Ragnar dining room
A formal dining table in the main saloon seats 14 guests, and in a niche originally slated for a piece of art, is a full-size likeness of the Viking warrior Ragnar, after which the yacht is named.
A hot tub and al fresco lounges occupy the top deck of Ragnar.
The wellness centre on board Ragnar is finished in warm travertine and teak to warm up after a ski expedition or an ice-cold shower. Highlights include a sauna, a snow-machine and warmed benches.
Ragnar toy garage
The garage features an impressive fleet of toys for any climate or terrain, including a BigBo amphibious vehicle, heli-skiing equipment, four See-Doos, four ski scooters, six Seabobs and a multipurpose island with a giant slide.
Ragnar heli deck
The certified heli-deck allows for swift arrivals and departures on board, as well as offering the possibility for heli-skiing adventures or further exploration of the surrounding cruising grounds on board the Airbus EC145 helicopter.
