Icon Yachts and Redman Whitley Dixon have formulated a 53m five-deck design founded on the repeat success of the Icon 62m concept. The Icon 53m concept is already attracting wide interest from the industry representatives and yachting enthusiasts all over the world. Having received such positive feedback about the tender garage and anchor handling space, Icon has decided to include a similar setup in the 53m platform.
The technical platform design has already attracted great interest from other well known exterior stylists, such as Hot Lab : yacht & design, who adopted a 54,5 meter version building on the flexibility and versatility of the concept.
This concept boasting an intricate design which makes the yacht look futuristic and sturdy whilst maintaining a form of elegance.
The yacht will offer an impressive 710 GT volume, built with a steel hull and using marine grade aluminium for the superstructure with her other features, such as Antenna mast and large doors made from a light weight high strength composite.
Naval Architect for Icon, Jouke Van De Baan, worked with the exterior and interior design styles of Hot Lab Yacht & Design to create a truly outstanding yacht concept made to the MCA Large Yacht Code.
She will be able to reach around 15 knots and to a range of 4000nm using her powerful, ultra efficient low emission twin MTU four stroke, 10 cylinder V marine diesel engines.
Icon 54’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. Alongside her optimized luxury layout is the designed integration of her service and technical spaces.
The general arrangement of the fifty-three metre superyacht design features an all open sun deck with alfresco dining under the shading hardtop, large size Jacuzzi served by a full bar and a large forward entertaining area which provides the perfect platform for relaxation and luxury outdoor life style.
The Icon 53 will be offered with either a full beam owner’s suite or two VIP cabins on the main deck with the added space for eight guests in four double suites and ample space for ten crew.
Icon Yachts Director Jen Wartena and Stephan Vitus, responsible for New Project Development will be on hand at the 2010 Monaco Yacht Show to display the 53m Technical Platform Design this September 22nd- 25th.
