LEGEND Yacht – Luxurious $50M Superyacht

The 77.4m LEGEND yacht was constructed to the highest specifications by Dutch shipyard ICON Yachts in 1974. She was then extensively refitted in 2015 in partnership with Verkerk Yachting Projects. 

From a Class I icebreaker, she has been turned into a magnificent charter boat without sacrificing her safety and strength. As a result, she is now one of the world’s first ice-capable yachts.

She was designed as the ideal luxurious platform for serious adventure. Able to travel practically everywhere in the globe, including the arctic, the LEGEND yacht offers a pleasant, elegant atmosphere for passengers while onboard.

Her beautiful interior space, courtesy of Diana Yacht Design , is timeless. She boasts of modern flourishes and cutting-edge entertainment features. 

The interior spaces are vast but inviting due to a mix of rich marquetry and soft materials, while unique fittings, furnishings, and artwork maintain her sense of adventure. 

Her decks are equipped with exquisite salons that contain complete bars, a piano, a fireplace, formal dining for 22, a beauty salon, a cinema room, a massage area, a full gym, a sauna, and more. 

Additionally, the boat has enclosed dining and sitting rooms for visitors seeking seclusion. 

At the core of the LEGEND yacht’s wellness offering is an enticing Balinese spa adorned with lavish gold and silver finishes, an original antique wood carving on the ceiling, and a welcoming atmosphere.

This refitted world-class superyacht with a 13.5m beam and 6.5 m draft runs on 3400 horsepower 2xSMIT-MAN engines . With her twin engines, she has a cruising speed of 11 knots to a maximum top speed of 12 knots. 

She has a range of 7,640 nautical miles and is also equipped with an ice-breaking hull for her to sail safely anyplace.


The LEGEND yacht can accommodate up to 22 guests in 11 guest rooms and host up to 28 additional crew members if necessary. 

Her eight double rooms, one twin cabin, and two convertible cabins provide a high degree of versatility for the charter party, with each cabin delivering the highest level of luxury.

To add to the fun and adventure, she is equipped with amenities. It includes a fully commercial helideck capable of carrying EC135, snow scooters, kayaks, paddleboards, water skis, wakeboards, inflatable toys, and equipment for scuba diving, snorkeling, and fishing among others.

LEGEND’s explorer appearance and completely classified hull provide a stark contrast to her lavish interior. 

Her exterior is ideal for adventure, leisure, and more, as designed by Legend Beheer & Icon. 

There is so much to enjoy on the deck, from outdoor eating spaces to a touch-and-go helipad that doubles as a sun lounger to a 16-person Jacuzzi. 

Additionally, the LEGEND yacht is fitted with the newest and finest tenders and equipment, including Wave Runners, water skis, wakeboards, Seabobs, and two 12-meter fishing tenders. 

She was bought at US $50 million and has an annual running cost of US $5 million.

On board with Jan Verkerk, owner of explorer yacht Legend

Builder, owner, captain, engineer, charterer… superyacht owner Jan Verkerk, the Dutchman who created the award-winning explorer Legend , explains his many talents to Dominique Afacan.

Jan Verkerk laughs easily, and little wonder – he’s making a profit from his passion. As a young boy of eight in Holland, sailing around the waters of Loosdrecht on a wooden boat given to him by his father, he could never have dreamed that he’d end up building and owning superyachts of his own, capable of exploring the world’s most remote regions and carrying the world’s wealthiest customers.

Fast forward 40-odd years and that dream is now Verkerk’s happy reality. While many view superyacht ownership as a frivolous extravagance, Verkerk always believed there was money to be made in the charter business. Now he’s proving it, one $500,000 trip at a time. So just how has he pulled it off? “I build my own boats – plus, my technical background makes me very handy,” says Verkerk, from his home just outside Utrecht, referencing his decision at 18 to skip university and train as a mechanic. “I used to buy old boats when I was growing up and teach myself how to fix them up for racing. Then the big work began and I was experienced enough to handle it.”

It’s nothing new to find owners who are heavily involved in the build of their superyachts, but Verkerk’s commitment is different. For his latest creation, the 77.4 metre ice-breaker Legend , he spent seven days a week at the shipyard for two and a half years, sometimes pushing through until the early hours to stay on schedule. He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of every fitting, down to the last light bulb, such is the level of his involvement and technical expertise. “Because I build my own boats in rented facilities,” he adds, “I am able to make them a little more cheaply. It’s a clever way of doing business.” In the case of Legend , which is now listed for sale with Fraser , Verkerk engaged Dutch shipyard Icon for the steelwork, but used his own sub-contractors to do everything else.

His recent successes suggest he is on to something with his DIY strategy. Launched last year, Legend was an industry game-changer, taking expedition sailing to a new level of luxury, and picking up the World Superyacht Award for best rebuilt yacht at the recent ceremony in Florence. Charter guests (and there’s room for 26 of them) can swim in the boat’s heated pool while they sail along the freezing Antarctic Peninsula, or they can climb into the boat’s three man U-Boat Worx submarine to find out what’s going on beneath the surface. Inside there’s a cinema, a gym, a spa and room for a grand piano. This year, she is already booked to go to the Baltic, Antarctica, Norway, the Caribbean, Greenland and the Med. Charter guests seem to be attracted by the opportunity for adventure, both on and off the boat.

Verkerk’s adventures in the charter world, however, haven’t always run so smoothly. The first boat he was serious about chartering, Jaguar , didn’t make any money at all. “She was a 38 metre classic boat and she was highly popular and active but it was difficult to make money with a yacht of this size,” recalls Verkerk. After a chance request to be part of a tandem charter trip with a yacht called Esmerelda , it occurred to him that most charter yachts could only host a limited number of guests. “I eventually realised the only way to make money was to scale up,” he explains.

His next boat, the ice-breaking Sherakhan , leapt up to 70 metres and was capable of sleeping 26 guests. Verkerk’s gamble paid off. Perfect for a growing market of adventurous charter guests, she sailed (and still sails) everywhere from South Georgia to French Polynesia , with Verkerk benefiting from economies of scale along the way. Sensing an increasing thirst from charter guests for exploration, when it came to buying another boat for his business, a powerful expedition yacht was the obvious choice.

Legend , originally a tug boat built in Holland for Russian clients, was an ice-breaker with potential, though she was far from perfect on first inspection. “She had already been rebuilt as a yacht, but not in quite the right way,” admits Verkerk. “At some point there had been a fire on board and the wheelhouse and the master cabin were destroyed.” It was just before 2008 and yachting was at its summit so the insurance company decided to keep it to sell. Then the financial crisis hit. That and the state of the boat meant that buying her didn’t break the bank. Rebuilding her, however, was another story.

“We basically built an entirely new boat,” recalls Verkerk. “Ninety per cent of the technology had to be replaced. From light bulbs to steering systems, polar code radios to the right size bed linen. It was a tremendous operation that took two years. The hardest thing was meeting qualifications – everything had to be beautiful, but it was also important that it didn’t burn. We needed certificates for every material – that side of things took a bit longer than we expected.”

Verkerk took charge of the interior design, too, adamant that Legend should stand out in the crowded charter market. “The idea was to make the boat as far from boring as possible. In many yachts, there’s one style – the design stays the same from the saloon to the master cabin. On Legend , we wanted it to be more of an adventure. The hallways might be pretty standard but every time you open a door, you enter a different world. People love it.” Verkerk was careful to consider exactly how the boat’s space would be used, crucial considering her most popular destinations. “When you go to Antarctica there are a lot of dull moments when you’re sailing and there is nothing to do. Most yachts are built with a focus on the exterior spaces but I felt the exact opposite was important with Legend .”

Regardless, the outside of the ship was far from neglected. “We built a swimming pool outside, which we heat to 35 degrees. It requires a tremendous amount of power and hot water to heat it to this temperature but people do love to swim out there in Antarctica,” says Verkerk. There’s also a heated barbecue area – but for every exterior design decision, the cold weather had to be taken into account. “It is designed so that when you sit, you’re out of the icy wind. You have to stand up to see the scenery.” Legend enjoys plenty of that and expeditions on the yacht have opened the owner’s eyes to some of the most astonishing parts of the world.

“Antarctica is absolutely number one when it comes to scenery and experience. This year we were one of the first boats through the Lemaire Channel and after that we went down to the Ukrainian base,” he says. “We were really breaking the ice – the ship was moving fantastically. And then the wildlife, well, what can you say? Nothing is afraid of you. When you experience it for the first time, you don’t know where to look, how to react.”

For those who have already ticked off Antarctica, he recommends South Georgia. “You think you’ve seen wildlife in Antarctica? You have no idea. You have to go to the shore and get the sea lions to make space for the tender. The whales are everywhere and there are millions of penguins – it is truly unbelievable.”

Although Verkerk sees great value in being able to sail to the world’s most remote destinations in the lap of luxury and with all the latest toys, he actually sees good service as the ultimate secret to building a successful charter boat. “It’s like booking a hotel,” he explains. “You initially get drawn in by looking at pictures of the swimming pool or the rooms online – but by the time you leave the thing you remember most is the staff: how nice they were to you, whether it was clean and whether the food was good. It all comes down to human interaction really.”

On board, he splits the duties a little differently from other yachts, hiring extra staff to take care of general management and leaving the captain free to run the boat. “I organise it like a hotel rather than a ship,” he explains. “On normal yachts the captain is very important. That’s also true in our case but on Legend he is not running the ‘hotel’, he is simply running the boat. For the service aspect, I tend to hire people with hotel backgrounds. For me it’s the only way you can do it.”

Verkerk got both his captain’s licence and his engineer’s licence in his mid-30s and often put both to good use on Sherakhan . Those days are over now, but he can’t resist spending at least some of his time on board in the engine room. “I love to see what is going on in there,” he says. “Perhaps that’s unusual!” Verkerk’s son has inherited the bug too and is already a captain at 28. The two worked together for a while, although his son is now on another yacht. Verkerk’s daughter, meanwhile, is studying to be a vet, but will nevertheless often accompany her father on expeditions to Antarctica. “She likes animals,” explains Verkerk, “so where else could be more beautiful?”

Surprisingly, given his obvious passion for superyachting, there are currently no plans for more projects. “I am 55 now and I’ve spent about 10 years non-stop on sea,” says Verkerk. “I am starting to want a bit more spare time. I like being at home so now I usually just do one trip a year on each boat.”

So how does home compare to life on board an ice-breaking superyacht? “I live in a farmhouse in a village outside of Utrecht. There’s water at the front and water at the back. It’s not extremely big or luxurious but I love it. Compared to the yachts, my life on land is very normal. Of course, it’s all relative!” Verkerk’s laugh rings out again. Time will tell whether he’ll be able to resist another adventure.

The superyacht world is speculating that Mark Zuckerberg just bought this 118-meter boat

  • The 118-meter superyacht Launchpad made her maiden voyage last week.
  • The yacht world is speculating that her owner is Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
  • Here's what we know about the luxury vessel.

Insider Today

In the world of superyachts , privacy is the most valuable asset. It can be next to impossible to discern the details of a superyacht transaction — and that's particularly true if the vessel in question is worth nine figures.

Yet some in the boat blogging world are speculating that Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg is the new owner of Launchpad, a megayacht currently moored in Fort Lauderdale, Florida after she made her maiden voyage from Gibraltar to St Maarten last week. Launchpad clocks in at 118 meters long, about nine meters shorter than Jeff Bezos' superyacht Koru .

The transaction could not be confirmed, with yacht world insiders declining to share what they know and representatives for Zuckerberg not responding to a request for comment from Business Insider. In the past, reports about Zuckerberg owning superyacht Ulysses have proven false.

Related stories

"It is Feadship's standard policy to never divulge any information about our yachts with reference to ownership, costs, or delivery, etc," Feadship, the ship's builder, wrote to BI. "Whether it is an 18-meter Feadship from the 1960s or a 118-meter Feadship from the 21st century, we do not share private information."

But Zuckerberg's name has been connected to Launchpad for a few months now, beginning in December when reports swirled that he visited Feadship's shipyard in the Netherlands.

Then, earlier in March, yachting bloggers like eSysman SuperYachts and Autoevolution started speculating that he officially snagged the boat, originally built for a sanctioned Russian businessman, at a $300 million price tag. (While that's a seemingly huge amount, it's still less than 0.2% of Zuckerberg's $177 billion net worth.)

Another clue that might point to US ownership is that the yacht bears the flag of the Marshall Islands, a US territory and commonplace for American buyers to register their ships, according to public marine tracking.

If Zuckerberg were to have bought Launchpad, he would join a cohort of superyacht-owning tech billionaires . Along with Bezos, the likes of Oracle cofounder Larry Ellison and Google cofounders Sergey Brin and Larry Page have purchased impressive boats with even more impressive amenities.

SuperYacht Times , an industry publication and intelligence platform, has some of the best images of the yacht. Photos show a swimming pool on her main deck and a large helipad.

While less is known of the interior, a vessel of her size can likely sleep dozens of guests and crew and may have amenities like an expansive gym where Zuckerberg could practice his jiu-jitsu or a spa with a massage area. We suspect there's also space for plenty of toys — which could include his viral hydrofoil foil .
