The one and only 254’ (77.40m) Legend is a ‘go anywhere anytime’ yacht and one of the world’s most impressive explorer yachts. With a steel Class I Icebreaker hull, fully commercial heli-deck and balanced design, Legend is perfectly equipped to take 26 guests on adventures anywhere in the world. She is one of the best-suited and most comfortable yachts for global exploration on the market today.
With a host of features and amenities almost too long to list, and huge variety of toys including a three-person submarine, Legend has benefitted from the extensive knowledge of her highly experienced current owner. The yacht underwent an extensive refit in 2015 at Dutch yard Icon Yachts and is in peak condition.
With more key features than guests know what to do with, Legend offers owners and guests every luxury imaginable including. A standard crew of 19 is able to be bolstered by an extra 10 exploration crew for longer or further flung expeditions. Huge focus has been placed on maximising and ensuring variety in the extensive onboard spaces, due to guests often spending extended time on the yacht due to the more remote destinations visited. Communal interior areas are beautifully finished and furnished with exquisite furniture that even includes a self-playing grand piano in the main salon. Outside, wide and plentiful decks are home to sunbathing loungers and pads, dining spaces and bars.
Her amenities include:
Legend has an incredibly stable steel Class I Icebreaker hull and over 7,500 nm Range, making her one of the best yachts for global exploration in the world. Having visited all corners of the earth, from Antarctica to South America, she is eminently suited to those looking for an unforgettable adventure.
With 13 staterooms Legend can comfortably accommodate up to 26 guests. She features an extensive owner’s suite, located on its own private deck, two VIPs, five doubles and five twins.
The yacht was fully refit in 2015 and is in excellent condition. Work included lengthening the yacht by 3.6m, allowing for the addition of a large swim platform and huge 16 person Jacuzzi fed by its own waterfall, with several reconfigurations of the previous design to best optimise the space on board.
