The RAGNAR Expedition Yacht Has The World’s Best Polar-Class Hull

Most luxury superyachts begin and end their lives in the care of an omnipresent crew. Upkeep and cleanliness are never an issue, and abandonment even less so. That wasn’t the case for the RAGNAR Exploratory Vessel — a once downtrodden ship that was left for dead in Kazakhstan prior to its refurbishment by Icon Yachts.

After being captivated by the vessel, Icon’s project manager, Leon de Haas, imagined a much different fate for the 227-foot wonder. In truth, the exploratory example was the owner of the world’s highest-rated Polar-class hull, making it an attractive option for travel to the planet’s most distant locales. Over the next 22 months, RAGNAR would undergo a dramatic transformation, courtesy of designer Redman Whiteley Dixon. Inside, the boat would adopt a notable “medieval” style, drawing inspiration from castles and keeps during the time period. A Viking banquet hall, gym, lounge, and expansive deck were refinished to provide accommodations for up to 12 travelers, while a spa center, massage room, steam room, foot spa, and top deck jacuzzi were included for more relaxing days at sea. Of course, there are also more adrenaline-inducing “toys” below deck, including a 400-horsepower Ribeye tender, four Seadoo RXT-X 300 jetskis, Lynx Alpine Ranger snowmobiles, and diving equipment. If you’ve got the funds, you’ll be able to charter the vessel for an estimated $525,000 per week.
