Following a a launch and delivery of the 62.50 m superyacht ICON 62 custom built in 2009, the company is currently working on two new projects, yacht FLORIDA and yacht MIDLANDIA.
ICON Yachts is a relatively new name amongst luxury yacht builders. The company is based in Holland and offers customised superyachts built on a pre-determined, technically optimised and operational platform giving almost endless customisable possibilities. The first yacht built by the Dutch shipyard was luxury yacht Icon 62. The yacht has a large fold-out transom beach terrace with shower, which leads onto an open day-room at the stern. This 62-meters super yacht features design by Redman Whiteley Dixon (RWD). Icon 62 served as a proven platform for Icon yachts to develop larger yachts.
Each of the Icon yachts is built using a same optimised platform. This way the hull shape below the waterline, propulsion system, machinery, and crew spaces would all share common design. This has been thoroughly tested and refined.
However the interior design, the shapes of the deckhouse and the hull above the waterline is custom designed. So each Owner can give his own input and create his/hers own look without having to reengineer components that are essential to the yacht.
The procedure results in shorter construction times, more efficiency and more cost-effective operation.
Yacht FLORIDA was already launched on the 27th May 2010, however is still waiting to be delivered.
The 62.50 metre (205.05 ft) displacement motor yacht FLORIDA has a graceful steel hull with a 11.40 metre beam and a draft of 3.50 metres.
The Naval Architects for Florida Yacht are Jouke Van Der Baan. Her exterior was designed by Tim Heywood Design Ltd and the interior by Redman Whiteley Dixon Ltd.
Yacht MIDLANDIA is yet to be launched and delivered in 2010.
With a sleek steel hull and aluminium superstructure the Motoryacht MIDLANDIA measures 62.00 metres (203.41 ft) in LOA. The yacht is powered by two MTU Diesel engines with a twin screw propulsion.
The Naval Architects responsible for Midlandia yacht’s design are Jouke van der Baan. Her interior was designed by Cristiano Gatto Design and for her exterior the Redman Whiteley Dixon Ltd are responsible.
Following the launch of the ICON Yachts superyacht FLORIDA, the company has released a statement in regards to changes in the management. For more information click here: New Management at Icon Yachts.
