Icon Yachts got off to an early start this morning as the Dutch yard entered the sea trial phase of its latest superyacht conversion project, the 68-metre explorer yacht Ragnar. Ragnar was launched earlier this year in January after being rebuilt as a luxury ice-breaking superyacht from its origins as the multipurpose supply vessel Sanaborg, built in 2012.

The owner was inspired by medieval war craftsmanship and sought the help of RWD to form a modern and powerful style for the superyacht, who is now LY3 compliant and one of the few explorers with ICE Class A1 hull. Built for unforgiving voyages out at sea, ICE class PC5 rated electric driven ice pods help Ragnar reach a range of 6,000 nm provides a shallow draft of just 3.15 metre.
Out on deck, her vast aft deck spaces are used to carry Ragnar’s impressive tender and toys collection and can accommodate an EC145 helicopter on its helipad. Inside, the guest accommodation has been extended to host up to 16 guests and can enjoy features including a massage room, sauna, gym, ice pool, snow room, ski room, swimming pool and jacuzzi.
