Refit Icebreaker to Superyacht

In the summer of 2017 Conoship’s research and Consultancy department was assigned with the conversion design study for an icebreaker vessel (originally also designed by Conoship International) to a luxurious explorer super yacht. On basis of the owners and Icon Yachts’ wishes and demands we provided a technical general arrangement plan together with a positive advice for the technical feasibility of the refit.

Together with Icon Yachts architects we fit the needs and class of a luxurious explorer yacht into an existent icebreaker/maintenance vessel within current rules and regulations and modern technical demands. Keeping the characteristics of the ship, resulting in a modern yacht like no other.

With the owners and Icon Yachts’ approval we are proud to announce that Conoship Internationals naval architects proceed with the refit of this conversion. Carrying out the basic design including rules and regulations study (large yacht code 3 and polar code), construction, arrangements drawings and HVAC design and integration Conoship International has proven again to be a design and engineering company with great expertise in a wide range of vessels.
