Icebird holds six water-tight compartments and a heated, double-glazed pilot house saloon offering all round views of the spectacular scenery scrolling past as the yacht is under way.

Icebird is insulated through out and climate controlled with reticulated hot water radiators and air conditioning. Even the bathrooms have heated towel rails! A large garage in the aft compartment allows plenty of storage for the aluminium hulled rigid inflatable boat as well as skis, kayaks, dive gear and other equipment for making the most of the exciting destinations you will be visiting!

Icebird is equipped with an indestructible Aero-rig, a 100ft rotating carbon spar with fixed boom, a serious no-fuss sailing rig that is eminently suitable for sailing the southern ocean. Icebird can be tacked or gybed with just a turn of the wheel, and with her 3.3m keel down she will tack through 80 degrees, or run down wind with ease, her sails set square to the wind. Icebird is a very special yacht built in one of the best European yards to a very high specification which included preparation for Antarctic and Arctic waters, and she is registered under her St Vincents and Grenadines flag for commercial charter. Icebird is classified for operating in all oceans including Arctic and Antarctic waters.

Technical Information

She is an extremely strong, heavy-duty expedition yacht that will carry her crew in comfort, safety, and speed, worldwide from the Arctic Ocean to the tropic islands of the South Pacific and on to Antarctica. The enclosed pilothouse provides comprehensive navigation, pilotage, and monitoring systems and keeps the sailor in warm dry comfort. With spectacular all round vision, her crew get to enjoy living in a “Room with a View”.
