M/Y LEGEND 77,4m expedition charter yacht > 26 guests
There are luxury yachts out there, and there are luxury yachts that sleep more than 12 guests. There are yachts that have commercial helipads and there are yachts that have submarines. There are yachts that go to the Arctic, there are yachts that go to Antarctica, but all of the above? There is not one other luxury ice-breaking yacht with all these capabilities and then some.
Built as a fully classified Class 1 ice-breaking ship, Legend is in the process of being converted at the Icon Yachts shipyard into a superb charter yacht with the project management of Verkerk Yachting Projects. Legend will be capable of carrying 26 guests in total luxury, without losing her safety and strength as an icebreaker.
Alongside the completion of the technical and system upgrades of this magnificent yacht, extensive modifications to her exterior are being made. The stern has been extended by 3.6 meters 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 helicopter and submarine will be offered for charters at an extra cost. She will also feature a gym, a Balinese spa with sauna, jacuzzi and beauty salon, a movie theatre and entertainment system, medical suite, swimming pool and any toy you can imagine from paddle boards to jet-skis to snow scooters.
Legend’s interior configuration has been designed to comfortably sleep up to 26 guests in 13 cabins, including a Master suite, two VIP suites, four double staterooms and six twin staterooms (some of them convertible). She is also capable of carrying up to 19 crew on board, plus an extra 10 expedition crew (doctor, ice-pilot, expedition leaders, naturalists, etc), which will ensure the most relaxed luxury yacht experience combined with the thrills of an unparalleled discovery adventure.
Legend will be available for charters in the more remote areas of the world, such as South America, Antarctica, Greenland, the Norwegian Fjords and the Arctic circle.
