Goliath series founder and yacht designer Steve Kozloff has unveiled a brand-new, ice-classed expedition yacht concept featuring a number of eye-catching details.
Kosatka is a 90-metre (295-foot) expedition vessel boasting six decks, an aluminium superstructure and steel, ice-classed hull. Kozloff described the yacht as having the “strength to endure the intensity of driving through moderate multi-year ice conditions… [she is] one of the most formidable yachts of her size.”
On board Kosatka, guests will find an expansive 736-square-metre aircraft hangar capable of accommodating up to four helicopters, a large forwards swimming pool with hard-top retractable cover and an array of sizeable relaxation spots. A lounge area aft sits at the waterline for astonishing views, and a crow’s nest has a full command-and-control helm station.
There is also storage space for two large freefall lifeboats and a submarine.
Accommodation aboard Kosatka has been optimised for up to 14 guests, while crew quarters are spacious enough for a team of four – the vessel’s design allows for a minimal crew.
Kozloff’s latest concept has a top speed of 15.1 knots and, at 12 knots, a maximum range of 22,000 nautical miles. She can be stocked up with supplies for an impressive 76-day endurance.
Kozloff recently made headlines with an attention-grabbing expedition yacht named Alexis – which can reportedly circumnavigate the globe without stopping.
