Ragnar Yacht ICON after

Conversion Project RAGNAR by ICON Yachts

ICON Yachts is working on a new 68m conversion project RAGNAR

The base for RAGNAR is the ex-offshore vessel SANABORG with a Polar Class 5 hull that was built in 2012 in the Netherlands.

The new lines are designed by the British design studio RWD. The yacht will accommodate 16 guests in six guest cabins and two owner staterooms. Alongside the typical standard features like a massage room, sauna and full-size gym, the yacht will have an ice pool and a snow room. Snowball fight inside a yacht. In the Med. Why not?

The explorer yacht will feature a certified helicopter landing pad for an EC 145. But the toy garage will host a lot more stuff. Here an excerpt of the planned toys:

  • 1 x Ripsaw EV2 (known from the movie Fast & Furious 8)
  • 2 x 8m tenders
  • 2 x 6m RIBs
  • 1 x Submarine for two people
  • 2 x jet skis
  • 2 x laser sailing boats
  • 1 x RIB Castoldi 26

6,000 nautical miles of operation range is enough to call her a go-anywhere yacht to explore the world. The vessel has an electric pod propulsion and air-cooled generators that don’t need salt water from the outside for cooling. So it is possible to beach the yacht (by the way, it has a draft of 3.15m).

Sunny Day Baltic Yachts

Normally, Baltic Yachts is well-known for their sailing yachts. Now they refitted the 2nd yacht - a motor yacht called Sunny Day.

Sunny Day is a good example to refit an older yacht. Although she has a classic look, she looks dynamic and now like a new one.

The yacht has a length of 25m and was originally built by Spertini Alalunga s.r.l. in wood. She reaches a top speed of 30 knots.

Baltic Yachts installed completely new systems, gyro stabilizers, transom door with space for the tender, refurbish and renew parts of the interior along with alternations to the interior disposition.

Tamer II by Jongert

Tamer II refitted by Jongert

36m sailing yacht Tamer II - 1986 built Jongert 32DS model - undergone an 18-month refit. Now she shines as good as new.

When Tamer II was launched she was the largest Jongert. Now she is the biggest refit project in Jongert’s timeline. The yacht features an exterior and interior design by Peter Sijm.

The owner instructed to keep her original design. When I see the exterior design: Well done. Unfortunately currently no interior shots.

The list what the Jongert team and the subcontractors had done is very long. Here is an excerpt:

  • a new teak deck
  • a new paint job
  • a Haman system
  • new wiring and electronic systems
  • new refrigerator & freezer system
  • new navigation/communication
  • new air-conditioning
  • new entertainment systems
  • new piping for all systems
  • new standing and running rigging
  • overhauled and partly renewed masts and booms
  • a number of interior-exterior modifications

The project manager, Hidde de Bruijn comments:

“I am very proud of our team, our own staff, and our partnering subcontractors who all have shown major efforts. It was a challenging project and we have asked a lot of our team. But all those efforts were well worth it when you see the end result, it’s a superb team effort.”

Tamer II has one owner’s suite, three guest cabins and an accommodation for a crew of six.
