The yacht was built by Dutch and American companies.
Russian businessman Oleg Tinkoff has purchased the world's first yacht that can break the ice. Thanks to these qualities, SeaExplorer can travel around the Antarctic. This is reported by Forbes.
Tinkov calls his yacht a “private icebreaker.” According to him, this is a project of the Dutch shipyard Damen and the US company Eyos Expedition. The yacht can sail for 40 days. It provides space for two helicopters.
The businessman said that he planned to spend 20 weeks a year on the yacht; at other times, he would rent it out for 690 thousand euros per week.
