230ft (70m)

The MASTER Project was first unveiled at the 2021 Monaco Yacht Show. World-famous designer and naval architect Espen Øino is responsible for her new appearances. 95% of the original platform and superstructure will remain, but an additional four meter aft platform will bring the total length to an imposing 70 meters.

MASTER offers accomodation for 12 guests in two VIP cabins, three twin cabins and one 140m² owner’s suite. Elsewhere, there is a sizable main saloon with floor-to-ceiling windows, a Jacuzzi, spa, and a gym. And she has accomodation for up to 19 crew.

MASTER will be equipped with toys, submarines and tenders that can be deployed and recovered by her 11.5 meter cranes. She sports a  42m² expedition area and a helicopter deck that can be used for entertaining when not otherwise occupied by a helicopter.

She will have a top speed of 14 knots and a range of 6,000+ nautical miles. She will be fitted with electric Voith Schneider propellers for whisper-quiet cruising at 10 knots.

MASTER will be ready to master the high seas in 2024.

Espen Øino’s bold design for Master.



MASTER was born as Havila Tigris and was delivered by Norway’s Kleven Verft in 2001, before it was sold and renamed Ocean Ness. She was most recently part of the Atlantic Offshore Rescue fleet in Aberdeen, Scotland. She is now at ICON where stripping-out work is running to plan.

Proven in worst sea and weather conditions, MASTER will be a comfortable and stable vessel in her new role as a luxury go-anywhere vessel.

She will be the perfect example of a purpose-built Family Explorer Yacht. Her impressive range of 6000+ nautical miles will enable her Owner and Guests to explore the most remote areas of the planet.

MY MASTER will be re-equipped with state of the art diesel electric propulsion to meet current environmental standards. The plant and machinery will be readied for compliance with the upcoming IMO Tier IV regulations dealing with emission reduction. 

Five highly efficient diesel generators produce electrical power and enable the vessel to travel vast distances of 6000+ nautical miles at a comfortable 10 knot cruising speed. The stern thrusters are designed with quiet DP operations in mind.


Expect nothing more than the most spectacular views onto the sea out of the open Main Saloon and Dining where its floor-to-ceiling windows make sure guests never miss a moment of their adventure. Twelve guests will be accommodated across six impressive en suite cabins: two VIP cabins and three twin cabins. Three floors above Main Deck an impressive Owner’s suite of 140m² takes centre stage. With full height windows and unobstructed panoramas, breath-taking outlooks are guaranteed morning and night. 

A high level of craftsmanship combined with modern and elegant style will greet all who sail on her.

“When I saw her for the first time, the
original vessel, I thought yes, I love it.
It’s something about her geometry.
She looks purposeful and elegant at the
same time”

Espen Øino, 2021
