ENIGMA XK (ex Norna) is an impressive 71-metre ex-fisheries vessel converted into a luxury expedition motor yacht by the Atlantic Refit Center, featuring an elegant yet industrial and luxurious look. She was originally built in 1988 and patrolled the cold waters of the North Atlantic for the Scottish Fisheries Protection Agency. She was decommissioned in 2010 and converted into a striking super yacht, relaunched in 2014.

ENIGMA XK's NOTABLE FEATURES: Winner of the World Superyachts Awards in 2014 ~ Powerful Ocean-going explorer ~ Amazing adventures ~ You will leave with memories to last a lifetime ~ Rare and unique charter destinations ~ Great socialising areas ~ Spacious master suite with lounge and office ~ Clean sober design ~ Fitness Room ~ Wellness centre ~ Jacuzzi on the upper deck ~ Wine cellar ~ Hospital

Naval architecture of the converted ENIGMA XK was the responsibility of McFarlane Ship Design, whereas Philippe Briand was in charge of her exterior, and Veerle Battiau, director of studio’s motor yacht division Vitruvius, was responsible for her exterior as well as interior.

The structural changes were aimed at bringing as much light as possible into her interiors. The portholes were enlarged, skylights added and a new upper deck saloon was created with wrap around windows.

The master cabin is located forward of the upper saloon, boasting wraparound windows for plenty of light and brightness and a massive subdivided skylight above the bed. Aft, the ensuite features an elegant bathroom, with two sinks, hammam, and open shower. The master cabin also has a comfortable office located further back.

The funnels situated to the rear of the upper saloon have been incorporated into the new design. The promenade on the bridge deck joins the funnels and creates a roof, providing a vast shaded area, leading to the spa pool, as well as to the extended aft deck and the Heli-pad.

Two tenders can be launched from the main deck aft using cranes. There are also two 4x4 vehicles accommodated in this area. The decking is Bolidt Future Teak, a resin imitation teak used for environmental reasons, together with the low-consumption LED lighting used throughout the boat.

"Indeed we believe that the first function of a sailing yacht is the aesthetics and we spent a lot of time in refining the lines during the project." - "I understood very young that to win a race you have to have the best boat, and so I started to be interested about the technology and the design of the boat." - Philippe Briand
