Icon Yachts, the Dutch-based shipyard has received a commission to complete conversion of the 73m Legend into an explorer charter yacht. Formerly called Giant, the fully classified Class 1 icebreaker vessel will have a next exterior design provided by Diana Yacht Design, with the stern extended 3.6m to accommodate a pool and swim platform.
Work on the project began with removal of the old interior, concrete ballast and steel parts last January. After this took place, the owner decided to have a new exterior design created and have the entire rebuild created at Icon.
With the capability of accommodating 30 guests, Legend will maintain her icebreaker credentials, see an upgrade of all technical systems and be Lloyds certified. The exterior will receive a commercially certified helipad and garage on the foredeck with the ability to house a submarine.
Verkerk Yachting Project will manage the overhaul, with Diana Yacht Design also providing engineering. The vessel is schedule for completion next summer and is expected to be chartered in Antarctica, Greenland and the North Pole.
