The 77.4m LEGEND yacht was constructed to the highest specifications by Dutch shipyard ICON Yachts in 1974. She was then extensively refitted in 2015 in partnership with Verkerk Yachting Projects. 

From a Class I icebreaker, she has been turned into a magnificent charter boat without sacrificing her safety and strength. As a result, she is now one of the world’s first ice-capable yachts.

She was designed as the ideal luxurious platform for serious adventure. Able to travel practically everywhere in the globe, including the arctic, the LEGEND yacht offers a pleasant, elegant atmosphere for passengers while onboard.
