The 87 m Explorer Yacht ‘Oceanic’ Conversion by Icon Yachts and Three Seas

April 29, 2011

At 87 metres the Icon Yachts and Three Seas ‘Oceanic’ yacht conversion is a large and very impressive project. The companies are converting the huge 87 metre “Oceanic” superyacht from a commercial tug boat which was originally built in Germany in 1969.

This interesting luxury explorer yacht conversion project will make motor yacht ‘Oceanic’ one of the largest private luxury yachts in the world with ocean-going ‘go anywhere’ capabilities and an ice class hull (classed to Germanische Lloyd).

Features will include versatile and large Tender storage, water and land ‘toys’, a submarine or day sailor boat carrying capacity, a helicopter pad option to MCA, a 12 metre main deck pool option and of course a stern bathing platform.
