Icebreaker Super Yacht

Icebreakers are hardly known as glamorous ships. They're specially-designed workhorses of the shipping world. But the Damen Group, a Dutch shipbuilding company, is changing that image. It has designed the SeaXplorer, a luxurious super yacht that will be able to take wealthy guests to otherwise inaccessible polar regions while maintaining a high lifestyle.

The Damen Group will display design concept images of 3 models under development, ranging in length from 213 to 328 feet long. Owners will be able to enjoy custom berthing facilities from the finest materials and built to their exact specifications. The Daily Mail reports:

While on extreme polar or tropical adventures at sea, passengers can enjoy up to 40 days of full luxury service without port call, with the ship having room for submarines, up to two helicopters, and diving and expedition boats to see sharks, whales or other marine life up close.

With a top speed of 16 knots (18mph), the largest yacht can accommodate 30 guests and 50 crew members.

Benjamin Maltby, from MatrixLLoyd, a leading authority on superyacht purchases, said an owner could easily spend upwards of £100million on a 328ft superyacht such as SeaXplorer.

He added: ‘This is a fantastic design, which allows the owner to explore Arctic and Antarctic waters, which are inaccessible to most superyachts.

‘Imagine whale-watching while sitting in the most comfortable and stylish surroundings. It'd be an experience which would stay with you for life.’

They have it backwards:
Imagine whale-watching while sitting in the cheapest, ricketiest, smallest boat possible, and not knowing for sure whether you'll see the sun tomorrow or become an orca's dinner tonight. THAT'S an experience which would stay with you for life.
