The featured image above is a far cry from the VARD 1-08 Kilkea sitting in the shipyard in the image below.
That’s because the Kilkea has yet to undergo its multi-million dollar transformation from a supply ship to a $62 million dollar yacht.
Over time, that same ugly supply ship will be turned into a 269-foot-long yacht, capable of carrying 36 people on board at once.
But the yacht won’t be all about luxury. Yes, it comes with a helicopter and all that jazz, but it can peruse the sea for upwards of 30 days at a time when fully stocked.
Not to mention, engineers are working to make the vessel as eco-friendly as possible, with lower fuel consumption than most boats its size.
