ICON Yachts in collaboration with Hot Lab Design are proud to introduce the new ICON 73 MILANO Yacht – where world renowned Dutch building quality meets fabulous Italian design. Motor Yacht Icon 73 Milano is a 73.3 metre luxury superyacht of immaculate design offering spacious accommodation for twelve guests in total.
ICON Yachts from the Netherlands have again indulged into Italian styling, joining forces to create this formidable and striking 73m thoroughbred ICON 73 MILANO super-yacht design study. A striking interpretation made by the Italian design studio Hot Lab based on the proven ICON technology, the 6 decks layout is tailored to present three spacious guest suites and a further two super sized 34 square meter VIPs. Icon 73 Milano Yacht also boasts a full owner’s deck with a 140 square meter of private terrace and helicopter landing pad access.
Striking yet timeless, the Hot Lab exterior styling is a perfect blend of architectural and automotive design setting a new milestone in luxury life style to indulge into the ultimate super yacht experience. The light flooded interior spaces provide calm and well defined ergonomics with owner and guest comfort and pleasure as primary design focus. A revival of a pre-rationalistic architectural tradition crowned with a reminder of a bygone sophistication with the library and cigar rooms.
The steel and glass structure on the aft sun deck was originally intended by Hot Lab to be a greenhouse, it is in fact a multifunctional space that can be dedicated to a gym, wellness area or more simply as a semi-open lounge. The use of glass renders this structure visually light and perfectly integrated with the shapes of the Icon 73 Milano motoryacht. Again, glass is the element that also characterizes the upper deck: a large portion of the aft decking features flush skylights that allow light circulation with the aft main deck area underneath.
In typical ICON tradition the bow area of the Main deck is dedicated to the tender garage with side shell openings capable of housing two boats up to 8.5m long. Adorned with a dynamic exterior the new Icon 73 Milano features an enormous iconic beach club as a direct extension of the luxurious guest accommodation on the lower deck. The large transom platform opens up to the sea for the ultimate beach experience on the water. The large teak folding platform furnished with sun beds is in direct continuity with the sheltered lounge area featuring bar, sauna and diving equipment store. A scenic corridor that crosses the engine room and links the beach club to the guest area which includes a fully equipped gym.
The transom door can also lowered to create a safe and convenient shallow beach. At night the large glass panes illuminate the space and sea into a pool of LED colours that can be programmed depending on the mood or for party / disco entertainment.
The propulsion options for motor yacht Icon 73 Milano are ranging from a conventional twin MTU common rail diesel shaft drives to a super efficient diesel electro pod drive setup; naval architecture and engineering comes from ICON.
For the visualization of the Icon 73 Milano concept Hot Lab is working with the new technology provide by Wacom: the new Cintiq 21UX interactive pen display.
