M/Y Ragnar made a grand entrance at 12 noon into Port Hercule and the YCM Marina at the start of Monaco’s ‘Capital of Yachting’ event. As tradition dictates when an exceptional yacht arrives in the Principality for the first time, she was greeted with a water salute by the Monaco fire-brigade.
Not only is M/Y Ragnar one of those rare superyachts with Arctic exploration capabilities, including icebreaker functionality, she also has an OCS system transmitting data collected at the ocean-atmosphere interface at all hours.
With a range of 6,000 nautical miles, M/Y Ragnar can venture to the planet’s remotest corners, even in the most extreme weather conditions, and beam back oceanographic and meteorological data to the international scientific community.
The 68m YCM-flagged explorer superyacht marks the start of Monaco: Capital of Yachting Experience (20-26 September 2020), four days of discussions organised by the Yacht Club de Monaco on how to tackle health and environmental challenges in the luxury yacht sector.
A reminder that this nautical event is part of Planetary Health Week organised to coincide with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation’s Monte-Carlo Gala for Planetary Health, the aim being to put the spotlight on both human health and crucially that of our planet.
