Written by

The 68-metre project Ice, currently in build by CCN Yachts and AES Yacht in Turkey, is taking shape. The project team presented the industry with an update during last week’s Monaco Yacht Show and gave insight into the development of one of the largest yachts to ever be built in Turkey.

Nearly all steel blocks have been completed and assembled at the shipyard’s shed in Tuzla. Final welding and hot work operations is expected to be completed by December 2016.

Project Ice’s exterior and interiors are the work of Milan-based studio Hot Lab Yacht & Design with naval architecture by Endaze Marine Engineering.


Mock-up works have begun on the interior and have been put together working in tandem with internationally acclaimed brands and suppliers to ensure a high-level superyacht finish.

Project Ice is on schedule to be completed in the first half of 2018, ready to be presented at the Monaco Yacht Show later that year. Learn more about all her onboard features here.
