Yachting – 2020 converted yacht RAGNAR at Malta – 18.08.2020

On Tuesday 18th August the 2020 converted yacht RAGNAR entered Grand Harbour, Malta during her maiden call at 1539 hrs bound to Grand Harbour Marina with Maltese (MLT) flag.

On Friday 24th August 2012 Wagenborg Offshore accepted delivery of the IMSV SANABORG the first in a series of ice-breaking multipurpose support-vessels with a 34 tons bollard pull. She was delivered by Royal Niestern Sander B.V. Delfzijl,  and was specifically developed for logistic provision of service to the oil and gas industry in the Caspian Sea.

In 2017 it was decided that the SANABORG will be converted into an explorer superyacht RAGNAR. During the conversion stage, new superstructure of the vessel, based on the current rules and regulations by Class (Polar code 5 and Large yacht code 3) were done resulting in an ultimate adventure experience explorer superyacht, delivered with unsurpassed style and luxury, fully compliant within the applicable rules and regulations by Class. RAGNAR was launched at the ICON Yachts shipyard in January 2020.

The ICE-breaker explorer super yacht was designed by RWD from the UK. An LY3-classed vessel with Arctic explorer capabilities, Project Ragnar owes its ice-breaking capability to ICE class PC5-rated electric-driven ice pods and an ICE Class A1 super hull. The vessel has a range of 6000 nautical miles.

Converting the vessel took two years and included an increase of luxury accommodation areas, a functional designated deck for toys, and fully-certified helicopter landing pad.
