When it comes to GIPSY’s performance, the new OTAM 35, exploiting the yard’s engineering capabilities enhanced by the successful experience designing and building the Millennium Line, in collaboration with their long-standing partner Naval Architect Umberto Tagliavini, has designed a very efficient semi-displacement hull that will provide this vessel with a top speed of 22 knots and a considerable range of 1,000 nautical miles at 11 knots.

The OTAM 35SD Custom Range was created with special attention to limiting draft. The hull below the waterline has been created with semi-tunnels that make the yacht very versatile. The is ideal for comfortable cruises in international waters like the U.S., the Caribbean, where a limited draft becomes a key factor.

74M Luxury Superyacht ILONA Completes Major Service at ICON Yachts

May 03, 2016

Written by Eva Belanyiova

Launched in 2004 by Amels, the 74-metre superyacht ILONA underwent an extensive service at ICON Yachts, including an array of refinements and technical upgrades.

ILONA Superyacht at ICON YACHTS

ILONA Superyacht at ICON YACHTS

The jobs carried out included a long list of items ranging from a substantial overhaul of the four-fin Naiad stabilisers system, technical services and upgrades as eel as the application of new antifouling after an extensive touch up of the anticorrosive system. All works were finished on time with a tight schedule in less than nine weeks. Now that ILONA is in the Mediterranean following a speedy Gibraltar crossing, she is ready to welcome her guests on board.

An increasing number of superyachts is seeking refit works and services in the Netherlands because of the fast and proven re-delivery times, smooth operations, and efficient work in project management, which of course results in lower costs.

Works on ILONA were also carried out very efficiently, in a systemized and organised matter. ICON Yachts reports an increase in refit activity endures by a successful first quarter of the year. New vessels are booking their slots very fast, so if you are interested in having refit works done at ICON Yachts get in touch with them in advance.
