Jan Verkerk, owner of the 253-foot Icon motor yacht LEGEND, has given us the green light to accept reservations in Antarctica for the upcoming season, from January 17 through February 18.
Originally built in 1973, Icon expedition yacht LEGEND underwent a complete rebuild and restoration in 2015. Now complete, she is the only luxury yacht charter ice-breaker vessel in the world.
For Verkerk, this is his second superyacht restoration project – the other being the highly popular 228 foot motor yacht SHERAKHAN – a fixture in the Mediterranean charter market for the past 5 seasons.
Active charterers will delight in the opportunities for adventure offered on M/Y LEGEND. With accommodations for 26 guests, and space to carry a helicopter and a submarine, the possibilities for cold-weather adventure are endless. Of course, Verkerk made certain to include the mandatory superyacht amenities as well: gymnasium, Balinese spa, sauna, beauty salon, movie theater and swimming pool. There’s even a medical suite, for any emergencies.
After spending a few weeks in Antarctica, the yacht will head to Greenland for the summer charter season.
If you’re intrigued to step away from your traditional Caribbean charter vacation this summer, let us deliver the superyacht experience to you, your family, and friends in the last great frontier on earth – Antarctica…
