  1. Icon Yachts 85M 'Britannia' superyacht project


    Icon Yachts are expected to unveil a new design at the upcoming 2011 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS). It is a 85-meter design being called Project "Britannia". The vessel is designed to have a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure. The design in itself is by H2 Yacht Design with Naval Architecture in collaboration, Laurent Giles and Icon Yachts. The interior design would be left up to the owner's perference and choice.

    Some quick dimensions read an overall length of 85-meters, spacious moulded beam 14.5-meters and a draught of 4.20-meters. Accommodation will be set out to satisfy for twenty-four persons including the owner. For the crew, berths for twenty-five have been cited.

    Project Britannia will have an array of tenders for both guest and crew usage. A pair of 10-meter limo-type and styled craft will serve as the main tneders. Additionally, a 6.5-meter tender will be available for the crew while a rescue tender of similar size for that purpose is envisioned. Of course a luxury yacht of this size will have a plethora of toys including windsurfs, kitesurfs, diving gear, jet skis kayaks and so on.

    Top speed of Project Britannia is expected to be approximately 19-knots with cruising in the region of 16-knots. Propulsion is proposed with a diesel electric power plant and a range of 6,000 nautical miles is calculated. An additional feature is a helipad on the bow for a EC-145 sized heli-borne tender. You can find out more information on this new yacht at the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) by Icon Yachts’ stand at Darse Nord QD63.
