Following the launch of the 50m motor yacht platform at last year’s Monaco show, ICON Yachts approached H2 Yacht Design with a brief to develop an 85m megayacht concept based on the ICON platform design.
The exterior styling and GA of the ICON 85m Britannia yacht was developed by H2 design. Laurent Giles Superyacht Architects were commissioned to provide the initial technical input required to start a new platform design. The vessel is compliant with the latest MCA Passenger Yacht Code, with a nominal capacity for 18-20 guests.
The exterior styling of this new 85m concept focuses on a pure, uncluttered linear design style. The crisp chamfers and sharp edges contrasted by the flowing organic form of the superstructure combine to produce a timeless profile with a distinctive design element linking the hull to the bridge deck aft.
“The design is radical yet conservative, contemporary yet timeless. Our aim was to produce a design with wide market appeal and character to make it individual and be recognisable as an Icon product.” explains Jonny Horsfield Founder ofH2 Design
Inside, centrally located tender garages release valuable space from the aft, allowing for the renowned Icon beach club arrangement. On this concept a central pool, spa and gym facilities are accommodated. Other interior features include a circular dining room, enclosed by full height glass and curved spine stairs. Panoramic views out over the aft bridge deck and light from the glass bottomed Jacuzzi above make for an impressive entertaining space.
With the proposed diesel electric power plant the hull will have a max speed of over 19 knots with a cruising range of 6000 nautical miles.
