ICON launches newly converted 68m explorer yacht Ragnar

Written by Laura Nicholls

Originally named Sanaborg, the 68.2-metre Ragnar has been undercover at ICON Yachts since July 2017 undergoing an extensive conversion. Yesterday, the team at the Dutch yard floated Ragnar out from her shed to reveal her all-new explorer style.

The owner was inspired by medieval war craftsmanship and sought the help of RWD to form a modern and sleek style for the superyacht, who is now LY3 compliant and one of the few explorers with ICE Class A1 hull.
