The yacht, equipped with a sturdy fixed keel and a reinforced structure for the hull and deck in order to withstand the ice, was designed and built to defy the high latitudes and get where others dare not.

The yacht was designed by Tony Castro Design and described as "an evolution of the 22.5-meter Pelagic Autralis" also designed by Castro. Speaking about the design, MCM founder Peter Wilson said: "An expedition yacht must be designed and built according to specific criteria, including greater autonomy, ease of management, a simple sailing plane and reliable and robust onboard systems. The Pelagic 77 was designed with all these factors in mind."

The yacht features twin engines with protected propellers and a bow laboratory to allow repairs at sea as well as an elegant diesel stove in the aft cockpit. The interiors were built of bamboo wood, difficult to work with but easy to care for. As many as 12 people can find accommodation on the yacht, divided into six double cabins.

After finally completing the construction phase of the ship’s structure, the next phase of construction is to operate the cables, pipes, the conduction for mechanical, electrical, hydraulic systems and then start the internal installation followed by the installation of the deckhouse. The yacht is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
