A spectacular superyacht has a last-minute cancellation. We at 1-800 Yacht Charters are pleased to announce a special opportunity. This is your time to discover Antarctica this January on the world’s largest ice-breaking yacht. She is 77 meter (254 ft) motor yacht LEGEND.
We first introduced our readers to expedition yacht charter vessel LEGEND. We also discussed her upcoming schedule for Antarctica in a blog in October. Owner Jan Verkerk gave the green light to accept reservations in Antarctica through mid February, 2017. The ship is a commercial vessel from 1973. She was then purchased by Verkerk. He outfitted her in 2015-2016 as the ultimate luxury ice-breaker. This enabled charter clients the unique opportunity to explore one of the last great frontiers on the planet earth. This is from the comfort of a luxury yacht charter vessel.
The yacht is packed full of features. For instance, a helicopter and a 3-man submarine. Super yacht LEGEND allows her guests to explore the rare frozen world. She has an entirely new angle. Think of the early explorers who trekked across the frozen tundra in snowshoes and slept in tents!
Intimate gatherings and relaxation can be found in the cinema, the Balinese-themed spa, or bubbling away on deck in the heated Jacuzzi. There’s even a real fireplace in the saloon where you can cozy up and enjoy a good book.
Active guests can get their hearts pumping with a workout in the gym, exploring the ice packs on snow scooters, or hiking and coming face-to-face with the wildlife.
The weekly rate for up to 26 guests is $460,000 plus running expenses, for example, food, fuel, dockage, bar, etc. (In addition, commercial passenger ship local taxes only when applicable). The charter fee includes personal laundry, normal communication costs, hotel supplies and basic internet. In addition, the speed is 248/512 internet speed. Higher internet speed is possible, but not included in the charter fee.
Further details of seasonal rates:
After spending time in Antarctica, equally important, the yacht will head to South America and the Caribbean, then on to the Mediterranean for the summer. Here are her current, confirmed expedition yacht charter vacations, and her schedule.

Danish builder Oceanco unveiled their superyacht project. She is the 120 meter yacht AMARA. In specific, she debuted at the Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS).
The yard continues to push the boundaries of design. Oceanco yacht AMARA showcases the builder’s new “lifestyle philosophy” concept. She places great emphasis on a family-oriented style of living. Sam Sorgiovanni, the yacht’s designer, describes the resort-style concept of the project. Besides this, Mr. Sorgiovanni says, “…the interior and exterior design work in harmony to create a holistic feeling of a relaxed well-appointed resort.”
Our quick review of the yacht’s initial technical specs discovers an interior with a contemporary style. She has natural tones and light woods. Her design is to embrace the ‘resort’ lifestyle. Plenty of wide open spaces and natural light lend to the relaxed atmosphere. She is an amazing superyacht project.
Amara features many onboard amenties. For instance, 2 theatres, 2 Majilis-style areas (Majilis means “a place of sitting” in Arabic), and a climbing wall. In addition, she has an upper deck waterfall that flows into the main deck swimming pool. There is a wellness areas on the lower deck, including Hammam steam bath and a beauty salon. This gorgeous yacht also has a water slide and a circular relaxation pod that suspends over the water. How unique is she!
Oceanco has a solid reputation for building luxury yacht charter superyachts. For example, 56 meter The WELLESLEY and the massive 95 meter Oceanco yacht INDIAN EMPRESS are in their fleet. Briefly, we lick our chops to be the first to offer this. Motoryacht AMARA promises to be popular for our clients.
According to our company president, Jana Sheeder, we may have to wait a while.
“As we are seeing with the 70 meter Heesen yacht GALACTICA SUPER NOVA, also a new concept in resort-style yachts, I believe yacht AMARA will enjoy extensive private use by her owner prior to becoming available for charter. The good news is that we continue to witness growth in the experiential travel sector, especially with an emphasis on wellness yacht charter vacations. The demand for superyachts with resort facilities such as spas and beauty salons is strong, and the eventual owner of AMARA will be in a solid position to capitalize on this growing business trend.”
Here’s the Danish builder’s press release via PRNewswire:
