Legend Yacht is a totally unique luxury ice-breaking motor yacht enabling her to cruise in some of the more remote areas including the Arctic and Antarctica. Legend cruises a new course in yacht charter offering pure unadulterated adventure, thrills and fun with all the luxuries you would come to expect of a superyacht; from world-class cuisine to a dedicated spa centre. With a 7,640 nautical mile range and equipped with all the latest toys, she offers pure unadulterated adventure, thrills and fun with all the luxuries you would come to expect of a superyacht from world-class cuisine to a dedicated spa centre, all whilst cruising the world’s remotest oceans.

Legend superyacht was built in 1973 as a fully classified Class 1 ice-breaking ship, and has been converted at the Icon Yachts shipyard in 2015 into a superb charter yacht with the project management of Verkerk Yachting Projects. Legend is 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 were made. Legend's stern has been extended by 3.6 meters and is equipped with a swim platform and a swimming pool.

Legend's helicopter landing pad is commercially certified and a submarine is stored in a garage on the forward deck. The helicopter and submarine will be offered for charters at an extra cost. Legend also features 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 (all of them convertible to double staterooms). 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 is also available for charters in the more remote areas of the world, such as South America, Antarctica, Greenland, the Norwegian Fjords and the Arctic circle.
