Dutch shipyard Icon Yachts has shared new photos of the 68.2-metre explorer superyacht Project Ragnar making progress in Harlingen. The vessel that had been initially built as an icebreaker called Sanaborg, entered the Icon shed in July 2017 for an extreme make-over.Built in 2012 from a steel hull, Sanaborgis is undergoing dramatic refit with interior and exterior styling by British design studio RWD. Her delivery is due later this year.The vessel’s owner is excited about her new style that was inspired by medieval war craftsmanship, combined with modern sleek lines and British heritage. She will be one of the few explorer superyachts with a certified ICE Class A1 super hull. Project Ragnar is LY3 classed with arctic explorer capabilities, full ice breaking functionality with its unique ICE class PC5 rated electric driven ice pods, giving the vessel its range of 6,000 nautical miles meaning she can go to the most remote areas of the planet.The yacht will offer accommodation for up to 16 guests across 8 cabins, including two owner’s suites. During the conversion, several tanks need to be removed and converted into superyacht spa area complete with massage room and snow room. Project Ragnar also has a ski storage for ski gear, a boot room, 1 swimming pool and a Jacuzzi. What is more, the 68-metre conversion project is set to be one of the best-equipped explorer superyachts on the water. At her aft toy storage areas, Ragnar will have options for a Luxury Ripsaw EV2, Eurocopter EC145 helicopter, two 8-metre tenders, a sea explorer submarine, two laser sailing boats on board and much more. Icon Yachts is particularly famous in the yachting world for their refit and conversion projects. Recently, the yard has converted a martime school vessel into a superyacht and relaunched the 1914 vintage yacht Tirrenia II and 60-metre CRN Ramble on Rose after refits.Photos via Icon Yachts

Dutch builder Moonen Yachts has declared it has entered into a new ownership, just a month after filing for bankruptcy protection with the Dutch court. The new owners of the yard are an Australian couple, Matthew and Louise Baxter. Matthew, of Scottish origin, is a successful Australian businessman and entrepreneur, who in 1972 established the A M Group, a privately owned worldwide group of manufacturing companies of which he is executive chairman.For several years, Moonen Shipyards was entirely owned by Mexico’s largest steel manufacturer Altos Hornos de México (AHMSA). During that period several yachts were delivered and business ran well at Moonen, thanks to the financial support of AHMSA. The situation changed last May, when Mr. Ancira, the chairman of AMHSA, was arrested on the Spanish island of Mallorca, accused of bribery. Consequentially, AHMSA’s bank accounts got frozen, including the one from Moonen. Some of the accounts were unfrozen after a while, but the money tap for the shipyard remained closed. The lack of financial support to pay wages and settle the required payments on the building of Project YN199 on speculation, led Moonen to declare bankruptcy.The setuation with AMSHA reflected in substantial financial instability of the yard in the past. When in 2015 the steel prices dropped dramatically, Moonen was filed for suspension of payment for a longer period of time. To avoid such an insecure period again, the management of Moonen was already looking for a new investor. In fact, the investor has been found and conversations were at an advanced stage in order to proceed a normal takeover of the shares. Due to the arrest of Mr. Ancira and the loss of cash flow, it was necessary to speed up the process with the intended shareholder, and try to avoid a bankruptcy. However, there was hardly any communication possible with the shareholder and finally Moonen Shipyards was no longer able to meet its obligations towards personnel and suppliers thus bankruptcy followed on the 11th of July.Still, the bankruptcy has cleared the road for the new Moonen in a way, as the proposed investor shared his wish to fully disconnect from AHMSA after the situation occurred last May. What the bankruptsy has relieved the new stakeholders of the responsibility to pay off Moonen’s debts.Louise and Matthew Baxter first discovered Moonen Yachts whilst sailing on Pittwater harbour in Sydney where they came across Moonen 84 Aurora. That lead to their involvement with Moonen.Mr Baxter, who also remains executive chairman of the A M Group, said:It is a privilege to own a yard like Moonen. The brand has an impeccable pedigree, the yachts are true Dutch quality and the team is young, reliable, talented and very loyal to the company. These characteristics are fundamental for success.The shipyard is very honoured and excited with Mr & Mrs. Baxter as their new owners. Moonen’s CEO Johan Dubbelman highlights:We have trust in these new investors and have faith that they will establish a strong future for Moonen Yachts. The 30 to 50 metre market is solid for well-built designs, and our plans are to increase production. Currently we have one, award winning, 36-metre Martinique in build, she’s 50% ready. The focus is to have her on display at the Monaco Yacht Show 2020.The company aims at scaling up production efficiently and starting two new build projects in the upcoming 6 months, he said. Following on with the current build we will start a second 36 metre and a 44 metre, both new and future proof timeless Moonen yachts with interiors designed by the award winning renowned design houses, like Studio Indigo. By building on speculation, delivery times will be shorter and customisation still possible, which is an absolute advantage for our future clients.The yard reports, the majority of the staff and workforce have been reappointed and are enthusiastic to be part of a strong new leadership. To assure continuous high-end quality, Moonen Yachts is going to reinforce the cooperation with long-term strategic partners and subcontractors.

The 96.55-metre Feadship superyacht Faith has been recently spotted at anchor in the bay of Cala di Volpe in Porto Cervo, Sardiania. The vessel is believed to belong to Lawrence Stroll, a Canadian billionaire with current net worth of $2.6 billion. According to Forbes, the owner's previous yacht was sold to a renowned fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger.Lawrence Stroll is known for masterminding the American fashion brand Michael Kors' hugely successful IPO in 2011 with a Hong Kong fashion tycoon Silas Cho being his business partner. Thus, the largest part of his fortune comes from selling his shares in Michael Kors; with the last stake sold in 2014. Moreover, Mr Stroll has been a part-owner of the SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team Formula 1 team since 2018.First known under the name Vertigo, the superyacht was built by Dutch yard Feadship in 2016. Redman Whiteley Dixon was responsible for the exterior design of the vessel with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, while Chahan Interior developed the interiors and De Voogt Naval Architects worked on the naval architecture. With a gross tonnage of 2,999GT, Faith was built to Lloyds +100A1 class and flies the Cayman Islands flag.The elegant curves of Faith's streamlined profile feature proportion and harmony, with the same applied to the characteristically Feadship lines of her flared bow, which features a games deck and helicopter landing pad with a hangar for a Bell 429 WLG helicopter below. The sweeping hull line leads down and aft towards the main deck aft, home to an extraordinary swimming pool made of glass panels that also form the ceiling of the beach club below. Creating this 68-millimetre-thick construction involved laminating together five layers of clear glass interspersed with foil. To make matters even more complex, the deep end of the 42,000-litre pool has an S curved shape and descends to 2.5 metres. The vast sea-level beach club beneath the pool almost doubles in size when the transom and fold-down side terraces are open. Doors in the hull further forward allow launching Vertigo’s custom tenders, which are Feadship-certified in a partnership with Tenderworks.The yacht’s main deck is a home to a cinema and serves as a prime real estate location for the guest accommodation section, which includes six staterooms (two VIPs), a hairdressing saloon and a dedicated pantry.The vessel’s interiors feature large floor-to-ceiling windows maximising the natural light and ocean vistas. Set-piece elements include the double-sided fireplace in limestone & quartz and decorative glass screens that separate the main lounge from the dining area forward, as well as the floating staircase which combines stainless steel, multi- textured stone and blue leather with a wealth of lighting in an exceptionally detailed way.Overall, the superyacht accommodates up to 18 guests, as well as a crew of 34. The owner's cabin is located on its own private deck, highlighted by an imposing full-beam forward-facing stateroom with 180-degree views and a three-metre-high skylight ceiling above the bed. Powered by twin MTU engines of 3,004hp each, Faith reaches a maximum speed at 17 knots and cruises for 5,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.According to MarineTraffic, the vessel’s location has not changed yet. At different times, the vessel was also seen in Côte d'Azur, Monaco or Lelystad, the Netherlands.Photos by Riva Ariston via Dutch Yachting

With less than a month left before the start of one of the world's largest yacht exhibitions, Yacht Harbour takes a look through the highlights of Cannes Yachting Festival 2019, that will see its 42nd edition from 10 to 15 September 2019.Last year, the exhibition attracted 51 thousand visitors from all over the world, to witness 542 exhibitors who brought 638 boats to the Cote d'Azur, including 219 new models. This year, according to forecasts, the number of exhibitors will grow by 8%, to over 50 thousand visitors.What’s on:In 2019, the Cannes Yachting Festival will cover even larger spaces. The Port Canto, which hosted an exposition of water toys and brokerage superyachts last year, will be fully occupied this time, with its main part devoted to sailing vessels. The total length of the berths with sailing hulls only will make 400 meters, the same quantity will be left for catamarans. On the ground, 4,000 square metres will be provided for sailing yachts manufacturers, twice as much as last year.Starting from September, the show will fully occupy the entire Gulf of Cannes, said Sylvie Ernoult, director of the festival. The water part of the sailing yachts exposition will increase by almost 30%, of the motor ones - by 10%. Their goal was to open the largest exhibition of sailing ships on the water in the world, she said.In total, 120 sailing yachts between 10 to 35 metres in LOA will be displayed in the Port Canto. In addition, Skipper restaurant will open doors at the entrance of the sailing area, with a terrace to enjoy a view over the masts selection. Every day from 10 to 11 in the morning it will be possible to enter the exhibition for free through the Port Canto (after registering on the official website). Meanwhile, Port Canto and the Old Port will be connected through regular RIBs shuttles, as it was in the previous years.The entire Old Port will be divided into zones, where each one will be dedicated to yachts of a certain size category and assigned with a particular colour accordingly. For instants, ‘compact superyachts’ of 20–30 metres can be found in the blue Jetee zone, medium-sized boats of 14–20 metres will be found at the new Terrasse Pantiero pontoons. A separate pier (blue zone) will be allocated to motor catamarans, close by a new exhibition of boat engines. Furthermore, for superyachts of 30–50 metres in length, there is the Superyacht Extension.What else on display except for yachts:Take a look at the Luxher Gallery, located in a round building near the main entrance, for premium watches, jewellery and fashion accessories, as well as designer utensils, bedding, furniture and arts. The Yachting Café nearby will offer dishes by hereditary pastry chef, Mason Dalloyau, whose ancestors fed cakes of Louis XIV himself.La Regata, the regatta of small catamarans will take place on September 12 and 13 for the first time. From the Port Canto, it will be possible to watch live athletes competing in the Gulf of Cannes, or even join one of the crews and participate in the competition.On Friday, September 13, the exhibition will run on an extended schedule and close at 10 pm. Between the 19th and 22nd hours, a lot of parties will take place. The Ambassador of the Cannes Yachting Festival 2019, a sailing star, the winner of the last Vendee Globe, Armel Le Cléac’h, might also be seen there.Another point of attraction, Concours d’Élégance parade demonstrating vintage boats will take place in the Old Port. Last year, the 1935 Triple Cockpit built by Hacker-Craft Shipyard won the main prize among vintage display items, while Cockwells titanium tender took ‘the most impressive modern boat’. This year's Concours d’Élégance will take place on September 14 at 16:00 local time.Other interesting news is that in the near future, the organisers of the event might be changed. Since already two year, the copyright holders have been suing each other for the right to perform management duties, and the latest decision of the Paris court is not in favour of the current ones - Reed. The court upheld the demand of the French Maritime Industry Federation to cancel the post-contract clause, according to which the right to hold the festival until 2041 is assigned to Reed.
