Diana Yacht Design is finalizing the design for the transformation of the 73 metre (214ft) explorer yacht Legend (ex-Giant). ICON Yachts has been commissioned to complete this bespoke conversion project.
Legend is a fully classified Class 1 icebreaking ship, which will be converted into a superb charter yacht, capable of carrying 30 guests, without losing her safety and strength as an icebreaker. The vessel was originally built to the highest specifications by the IHC Holland shipyard.
The render underneath gives a good impression of the major scale of this refit.
Livadia is shaped with a round-bilge hullform to ensure exceptional comfort at sea. She features Caterpillar engines and zero-speed stabilizers, and is also built to Lloyd’s Register Class and MCA Certification. She provides owner and guests four very large and luxurious staterooms, in the fore ship she offers the crew a comfortable living area.
Owners and guests enjoy the most peaceful of cruises thanks to a comprehensive sound and vibration attenuation programme. In addition to deploying the finest noise-absorbing insulation, Moonen has eliminated vibration at source by giving the yacht’s highly skewed propeller 50 percent more clearance between the blade tip and hull surface.
