72m RESEARCH SHIP
A former Russian Arctic supply vessel.
Originally named “Rem Fantasy”, this vessel
was purchased for conversion to an explorer
yacht. Despite its age (30 years) and some
obsolete technology (water cooled gyro compass
with glass valve semi-conductors!) the ship
was sound and offered immense potential.
Solent International visited the ship in
Norway and carried out a detailed examination
for a comprehensive re-build specification,
following a general arrangement prepared by
London based yacht designers, H2 Yacht Design.
