While the vast majority of us will never be able to relate to this “problem,” it is conceivable that the world’s super-rich could eventually get bored of cruising the same ol’ Caribbean and Mediterranean seas.
Reaching more remote, less hospital locations, however, would take a special kind of yacht … and that’s just what the ice-breaking SeaXplorer is intended to be.
The SeaXplorer is being built by Dutch shipyard Damen, and was designed in partnership with yacht-builder Amels, extreme travel company EYOS Expeditions, and Azure Yacht Design & Naval Architecture. Buyers will actually be able to choose between three sizes of yacht, ranging in length from 65 to 90 to 100 meters (213, 295 or 328 ft). The largest will accommodate up to 30 guests and 50 crew.
