Built in 1969 by Schichau Unterweser as a deep sea salvage tug, she roamed the high seas as one of the mightiest deep-sea ice-breaking tug vessels for over two decades. In 1993 she was sold to Magenta Investment, renamed Arctic Research and converted into a superyacht at Malta Shipyards. Arctic P features exterior design by Kusch Yachts while her builder Schichau Unterweser completed her naval architecture. During her conversion, Oliver Design took the reins on the interior of this fully-steel superyacht. Lastly refitted from 2019 to 2020, the 2,610 GT explorer yacht can accommodate as many as 12 guests across seven staterooms, including an impressive 90 square-metre master suite. In terms of performance, Arctic P is powered by twin Deutz AG RBV 12M 640 diesel engines of 6,508 horsepower each, which allows her a range of 10,000 nautical miles and a cruise speed of 17 knots.
