Reportedly she is rated as Ice Class 1A Super, “which means it can operate in temperatures as low as -31 degrees Fahrenheit at a speed of four knots, in ice that is 20 inches thick.” No indication of speed or horsepower. But she could be leased for only $525,000 per week. Might even get a price break on a long term lease.
This reminds me of the stories of yachts pressed into service as escorts during WWII. Reportedly one had a button that, when pressed, would move the XO’s bed into the Captain’s cabin and dump anyone in the XO’s bed into the Captain’s bed.
Thanks to Lee for bringing this to my attention.
