Inspired by the identity of the famous Norse warrior king, the 68.2-metre charter yacht Ragnar was built to take guests out of their comfort zones and into an unchartered world of snowy mountain tops, unforgiving tundra and pitch-black ocean depths that teams with marine life. Beneath her rugged exterior is an even more untamed commercial backbone that sets motor yacht Ragnar apart from luxury explorer wannabes in her class.

To get a grip of the owner’s vision with motor yacht Ragnar, British design studio RWD delved deep into the Viking history books to pick up on characteristic elements that could be introduced in the project’s overall design. “The owner is hugely interested in medieval battles and weaponry, so we picked up on his hobby and gave the project real character with a helmet-like face,” says Charlie Baker, RWD team leader for the exterior and interior design. “He wanted the vessel to have a physical presence and I think the imposing bow and superstructure deliver that.”

With over 500 square metres of deck space and a total volume of 2,450 GT, motor yacht Ragnar is substantially larger than your conventional 68-meter motor yacht. A whopping 900 GT was added to the ship’s overall volume during the intensive rebuild project at Icon Yachts which lasted three years.

On a vessel that defies nearly every superyacht cliché in terms of layout and function, the top deck is perhaps the most subdued and familiar of them all. Here, guests will find an open-plan setup that wraps-around a central technical space which houses Ragnar’s emergency generator. A bar on the port side serves guests relaxing in the lounge up forward as well as those opting to warm up in the jacuzzi as the Scandinavian sun dips below the horizon.

Inspiration for the interior spaces came from the owner’s own travel experiences and the long ocean voyages he has undertaken. The spaces on board are tailored to match the activities on offer to her guests, welcoming those returning from heli-skiing in a warm and cosy environment and embracing others surfacing after a deep dive with a spacious layout that is a blend of Scandinavian chic and old-world grandeur.
