Major refit project for Diana Yacht Design and ICON Yachts

Diana Yacht Design is finalizing the design for the transformation of the 73 metre explorer yacht Legend (ex: Giant). ICON Yachts has been commissioned to complete this bespoke conversion project.

Legend is a fully classified Class 1 icebreaking ship, which will be converted into a superb charter yacht, capable of carrying 30 guests, without losing her safety and strength as an icebreaker. The vessel was originally built to the highest specifications by the IHC Holland shipyard.

The render underneath gives a good impression of the major scale of this refit.

Alongside the completion of the technical and system upgrades of this magnificent Icebreaker, extensive modifications to her exterior will be made. The stern will be extended by 3.6 metres and will be equipped with a swim platform and a swimming pool. The helicopter landing pad will be commercially certified and a submarine will be stored in a garage on the forward deck.

The project is being managed by Verkerk Yachting Projects, the design and the engineering is performed by DIANA Yacht Design and she will be fully Lloyds certified (Solas passenger yacht 30 pax ). Legend will be used for adventurous charters in the remote areas of the world, such as Antarctica, Greenland and the North Pole.
