Overview

Unique 19-knot, ice-class, diesel-electric expedition yacht project for operation in all sea conditions and ice to support expedition adventures for the consummate sportsman (and ladies). Originally built as an ice-class search & rescue ship to the highest technical spec for government operation in Scandinavia.This price quoted is for the new search & rescue ship with only 400 hours on the main engines. The cost of the conversion into an expedition yacht will be an additional cost for new owner.  Expedition yacht expert, Paul Madden, collaborated with Richard Liebowitz of LP Design (UK) to carefully configure a conversion design that would deliver the ultimate expedition megayacht.

This is a NEW vessel (400hrs on mains) built to DNV-class that can be converted in short order, fitted out to a new owner's specifications. It comes with a shipyard warranty.

Superyacht owners often view the underwater world live on stateroom large screens, from images transmitted by a roaming Falcon. 

As an underwater workhorse the Falcon is fitted with a gripper for recovering items from the seabed, with other tools added as needed. Tools such as rope cutters for severing 15mm rope and 12mm steel wire rope, powerful manipulators and cleaning systems for keeping critical fittings clear.

Diver safety is a key benefit. As a dive buddy, a Falcon can survey a dive site and then watch over the diver when below. It can also transport items back and forth during a dive.

 

Apeks Black Ice This weight-integrated BC of   has oversize weight pouches to help dial in your buoyancy for this type of tec diving. HDC Expedition Tech

Dry Suit  made from ­flexible Cordura fabrics built to withstand the rigors of ice diving. The ­heavy-duty kneepads are made from Kevlar -- the same material used in body armor -- and its slim "cave cut" design improves its ­in-water dynamics.

Mares Abyss 22 Navy Reg A reg was the first reg approved for cold-water use by the military. The first stage has a dry-sealed spring chamber to prevent freezing and protect internal compartments from contaminants.



Noise reducing decks

The entire accommodation area on deck 3 and deck 4 is covered with floating floor for optimal reduction of noise and vibrations from the engine room, A/C central, etc.

The floor construction and lining details were built to spec.

On deck 3 the floating floor is of a high-reduction combi floor.

Where deck 3 is lowered in the aft part of the accommodation, the thickness of the floating floor has been increased in order to taper the deck into the aft deck, so that the top of the floor is in level with the rest of the deck.
