Icon's Project Ragnar Ready for Delivery
by Miranda Blazeby
The 68.2 metre luxury explorer Project Ragnar is ready for delivery following sea trials.
The 2,450GT icebreaker explorer is now preparing to depart Icon Yachts' Harlingen facility following a two year conversion.
Previously an icebreaker named Sanaborg, Ragnar was built in Holland in 2012 as a multi-purpose support supply vessel.
Now sporting exterior and interior design penned by RWD, Ragnar takes inspiration from "medieval war craftsmanship", "contemporary design" and "British heritage".
Project Ragnar boasts a certified ICE Class A1 super hull, equipping her with Arctic explorer capabilities. Ragnar also includes luxury accommodation areas, a toy deck and fully certified helicopter landing pad.
The explorer will also be able to store two eight-metre tenders, a sea explorer submarine and two laser sailing boats.
Fully LY3 compliant, her accommodation will allow for 16 guests split across eight cabins, including two owner’s suites. Standout features will include a superyacht spa, complete with massage room and snow room, a swimming pool and a Jacuzzi.
Power will come from a pair of PC5 diesel electric pod-drive engines that will allow for a maximum cruising range of 6,000 nautical miles.
When delivered, Ragnar will be offered for charter through Burgess.
