Experience Rugged Greenland & Beyond Onboard Yacht LEGEND

Posted on

ADVENTURE & LUXURY – HAND IN HAND

The hottest trend in yachting will continue this summer, as motor yacht LEGEND joins a growing  fleet of luxury yacht charter vessels forgoing the Mediterranean for extreme Arctic and Northern Europe adventures.

On the heels of a winter expedition to Antarctica, the 77 meter Icon yacht LEGEND will relocate to northern Europe for the summer, with a spring pitstop in the frozen tundra of Greenland.  Charters have already been secured by action-seeking travelers in both May and June.

READY FOR ADVENTURE?

Activities offered aboard this yacht charter boat include whale watching, heliskiing (heli-skiing), and rides via dog sleds and snow scooters…

With the advent of ultra-luxury expedition yachts entering the charter market, the decades-old adventure travel movement has finally reached the luxury sector of the market. Once the realm of budget-conscious travelers, willingly “roughing it” in hostels and tents,  expedition yachts allow affluent charterers the opportunity to experience an adventure travel vacation without compromising creature comforts.

The growing list of yachts offering activity-oriented charters in the Arctic and northern Europe include 229 foot superyacht SHERAKHAN,  205 foot Icon yacht BATON ROUGE (in Norway in June), and the 238 foot Abeking and Rasmussen motoryacht CLOUDBREAK (scheduled for May 2019 in Greenland).

A closer look at yacht LEGEND demonstrates the appeal of these modern expedition yachts:

KEY FEATURES

  • Commercially certified helipad
  • 3-man submarine
  • Ice-breaking hull
  • Snow scooters (snowmobiles)
  • Balinese spa
  • Cinema
  • Aft-deck heated pool
  • Gym
  • 26 guests in 13 staterooms

Yes, indeed –this luxury yacht charter vessel is packed full of features.  From the helicopter to the 3-person submarine, this yacht allows her guest to explore this cold-weather destinations from entirely new angles. Relaxation can be found watching movies in the cinema, getting a massage in the Balinese-themed spa below deck, enjoying cocktails on deck in the ultra-heated Jacuzzi, or just cuddling up by the fireplace with a good book. More action can be found in the gymnasium, or exploring on the snow scooters, or just coming face to face with the wildlife on land. Perfect photo opportunities for a memorable vacation of a lifetime.

 

HEADCOUNT

A big “plus” of many expedition yachts is the ability to accommodate large families and groups of friends.  Whereas most luxury charter yachts are capped at a maximum headcount of 12 passengers, yachts like LEGEND and SHERAKHAN can both legally and comfortably accommodate 26 guests.

Newest Entries to the Top 100 World’s Largest Yachts, 2015

Posted on

2015 started out with a forecast of ten brand new superyachts scheduled for completion this year, all of which when launched would be ranked in the, “Top 100 of the World’s Largest Yachts.”

With the year quickly drawing to a close, it turns out 8 of the 10 were completed and launched on schedule – a testament to their builder’s ability to deliver a yacht on schedule (although only the builder and owner know for sure if the yacht was also delivered, “on budget”).

Here are the 8 newest entries to the list of the 2015 world’s largest yachts, along with their position in the top 100:

Rank in

Top 100               Name                                  Length                                 Builder

19                          GOLDEN ODYSSEY            123.20m (404’2”)           Lurssen

33                          ULYSSES                              107m (351’)                       Klevin

37                          SYMPHONY                        101.50m (333’)                 Feadship

49                          ROYAL ROMANCE            92.50m (303’5”)             Feadship

54                          ORCHID                              91m (298’6”)                     Lurssen

93                          ROMEA                               81.80m (268’4”)               Abeking & Rasmussen

 

Dutch über-builder Feadship leads the way with three top 100 megayachts, with Germany’s Lurssen Yachts delivering two, including the largest newest yacht launched in 2015 – the 123 meter motor yacht GOLDEN ODYSSEY.

Private yacht charter clients might be disappointed that only one of these new yachts is immediately slated to enter the yacht rental market – the Abeking & Rasmussen yacht ROMEA.  Based in the Med, The Monaco yacht charter vessel has set her 2015 inaugural season rental rate at Euro 875,000 per week [plus running expenses, of course!].

Yacht profile

Feadship and Lurssen enthusiasts don’t despair – these builders have plenty of behemoth yachts available for hire, including the 85.10 meter Lurssen yacht SOLANDGE, and the 81 meter Feadship yacht AIR.
