ICON SOLDWell-priced, northen Europen yachts continue to command interest in the post-pandemic market
ICON was the first yacht to be based on a pre-engineered platform similar to what is used in commercial building. The shipyard was able to deliver a fully customized Dutch-quality yacht in 2/3 of the time normally required. ICON was the first in a trend that would become standard yacht building practice over the next ten years.
Custom built from the waterline up, Jouke Van Der Baan and Kyp supported ICON’s in-house team of naval architects while the exterior styling was entrusted to Redman Whitely Dixon (now RWD). The contemporary interior design was by Studio Linse, known for the “noble simplicity” of their projects.
In 2015, ICON returned to Icon Yachts for a 5m extension, which increased her volume to 1295GT. ICON now features an aft deck swimming pool and a beautiful beach club built around a state-of-the-art wellness area with a massage room, gym, sauna, and inside and outside showers. The swim platform is furnished with sun loungers and a bar. Very few yachts of her size have such outstanding facilities.
ICON’s innovative layout ensures that the interior and exterior areas come together to maximize the enjoyment of ocean living. Her well-planned interior balances comfort with functionality. ICON sleeps up to 13 guests. Accommodations include an owners’ private apartment across two decks linked by a private staircase. The area can be shut off for complete privacy. There are a VIP and children’s or nanny’s stateroom on the upper deck and four guest staterooms on the lower deck with direct access to the beach club. ICON accommodates 19 crew members.
ICON is powered by twin MTU 12V4000 engines of 2,480hp each, giving her a maximum speed of 16 knots. At her cruising speed of 13 knots she has a range of 6000nm. She is equipped with Quantum Zero Speed stabilizers engineered for peak performance at 15 knots underway and optimum roll damping while at anchor.
Designed for extensive world cruising, flagged in the Cayman Islands and complying with LY2, ICON has been a very successful charter yacht.
ICON was asking EUR 45 million and is EU VAT paid.
