In addition to having full ice-breaking functionality and a surplus of power so that it can be self-sufficient in any weather conditions, Ragnar also flaunts the sophisticated features of luxury yachts, from a swimming pool, an observation lounge, and a jacuzzi, to a cozy fireplace, a fully-equipped gym, and a state-of-the-art spa.
Everything about Ragnar is jaw-dropping. This massive steel 224-footer (68 meters) is almost as indestructible as a warship, boasting an outer and an inner shell, separated by an air gap. Its diesel-electric propulsion system, with ice-breaking propellers, allows it to travel to Antarctica while up to 12 guests onboard enjoy the most lavish amenities. In addition to the classic water toys fleet that would be found on most yachts, this Viking boat also hosts a submarine and an amphibious ATV. Plus, an Airbus EC145 helicopter is ready to take off from the ship’s certified helipad for some heli-skiing.
In terms of interior design, Ragnar is no less impressive. It was meant to be cozy as a ski chalet, and dignified as a Scottish castle, RWD designer Charlie Baker told Boat International.
Although it has a few years behind it (it was converted in 2012 and rebuilt in 2020), the fierce Ragnar is one of the top charter explorers on the market, with weekly rates of up to $650,000. And, if someone is ready to take over this unique steel beast listed for sale at Arcon Yachts, all they need is $78.4 million (its last known asking price).
