ICON Yachts and Redman Whitley Dixon have formulated a 53m five-deck yacht design founded on the repeat success of the Icon 62m yacht concept.
The Icon 53m superyacht concept is already attracting wide interest from the industry representatives and yachting enthusiasts all over the world.

Icon 54 yacht’s interior was also designed by Hot Lab and displays palatial and modern luxury using the most comfortable materials layered in platinum white, which contrasts well with the black furnishings and embellishments set around the yachts design.
With full height glass sides in her luxury decks, the Icon 53m superyacht features light filled interiors and a distinguishing full beam owners suite on the main deck.Brandishing the typical ICON Yachts expertise seen in their previous designs, such as a luxuriously deep beach club with full transom swim platform and 295 square metres of fully customizable interior spaces.
