8 Of The Best Explorer Yacht Concepts


Aurora Borealis
Inspired by the rough weather conditions of Norway and designed by Norwegian Kurt Strand, this huge 122 metre explorer yacht concept is not for the faint hearted. Six stories high and with a 20 metre beam, the yacht transforms into an “open outdoor experience” with a number of tenders and toys. A large helicopter pad will sit on the aft deck behind a swimming pool with a retractable glass floor. The hangar will be large enough to accommodate two helicopters while the yacht’s aviation club will be equipped with bars and a launch area.


Ocea 50 Ice
Equipped to take on the most extreme conditions on earth, the Nemo 50 Ice draws on Ocea’s heritage of producing military ships. With a gross tonnage of 499, the yacht is equipped to carry tenders, rigid hulled inflatable boats and landing crafts, as well as specialised military davits to retrieve them. Another standout feature is the shafts, which have been integrated into dedicated structural skegs to protect them in the event of an iceberg collision.
