Brazilian yacht builder MCP Yachts ended 2018 on a high with the delivery of its first 925 THD motor yacht project. Named Ragnar, construction on the 27.7-metre superyacht began in November 2016 after having been commissioned by a repeat client of the yard.
Built completely in aluminium, Ragnar is the first Two and a Half Deck (THD) yacht by MCP who also designed the project in-house together with the client. Designers Andreia Guiraldella ad Lia Siqueira were in charge of creating the functional interior designed for everyday living as requested by the owner. Photo: MCP YachtsPhoto: MCP Yachts
The lack of infrastructure in the region also played a big part in the development of the vessel and Ragnar is therefore fitted with several redundant systems and easy-to-maintain machinery. Large water and fuel tanks allow for prolonged periods on board for the guests and a range of 3,000 nm means her captain can safely steer Ragnar to any of the islands off the Brazilian coastline.
Ragnar’s owner opted for a five-cabin layout on the lower deck as well as a large master suite forward on the main deck. MCP adds that the 92 THD can be customised with a number of different arrangement options depending on the yacht’s intended use. Fitted with twin 1,925 hp engines, Ragnar can reach a top speed of 27 knots and is designed to cruise at 23 knots. Photo: MCP Yachts
