Conversion (Blommendal)

ICON Yachts challenged four internationally acclaimed design studios to prepare concept studies of a retired Dutch Navy survey vessel into a explorer type superyacht.

The focus of the project is a 59m HR MS Blommendal, built by Boeles in 1973 for the Royal Netherlands Navy. The ship is one of a series of very similar vessels retiring from service and becoming available for conversion – making the challenge a highly practical exercise.

She can feature four guest cabins on the lower deck, good-sized owner’s accommodation and the required saloons and observation lounges.

Sisterships that have already been converted are: Akula, Altair, Wega, Capella C and Intuition II. ICON’s intention is to spark a variety of fresh conversion concepts that will excite and inspire a range of clients.
