ICON Yachts is a Dutch based shipyard in Harlingen, The Netherlands. ICON Yachts was founded in 2005 by Dutch entrepreneur Ton Van Dam.

Icon is located on reclaimed land just outside of the historic port of Harlingen, with complete open-water access through locks and bridges. Icon Yacht's facilities include a large covered and heated dry dock with sufficient space for yachts up to 150 meters in length and 7.5 meters of draft. The yard has a 4,500 ton travelift.

Icon Yachts unveils latest superyacht concept: Selazzio 95-meter Explorer at Monaco A new whimsical concept emerges from the shadows of Icon's design house just in time for the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS). In fact they collaborated with Austrian design house Motion Code: Blue on this large explorer design. She is called Selazzio 95 Sea Palace and is a 95-meter explorer superyacht that was far removed in design from the typical explorer.
Icon Yachts in the Netherlands serves up their latest yacht design. It's a motoryacht measuring in under 100-feet with a design by Ken Freivokh. The 95-footer is not a concept but a yacht ready to build and is seriously up for sale to a prospective owner, asking 10.5 million Euros. The 172-tonne yacht isn't fast but more a luxury cruiser with an envisioned top-speed around 12-knots. She's electrically driven Hydrosta azimuthing thrusters which get their power from Lithium Ion NMC batteries or SCANIA gen sets or perhaps both depending on the owner's requirements.
