Originally delivered by Icon Yachts in 2010, this 67.5 metre superyacht underwent an extensive refit in 2014 that saw her wellness facilities receive a serious upgrade. A new infinity pool and a beach club were added, creating two dreamy al fresco areas for guests to sit back and soak up the sun. The glass-bottomed pool filters a dappled blue light into the beach club below, while a fold-out balcony offers easy access to the sea and additional space for sun loungers. 

Adjacent to the beach club, a gym allows guests to practice yoga or make use of its Technogym weights and exercise machines. After a killer workout, guests can then soothe sore muscles in the Hammam, sauna or massage room. Four of her seven cabins offer direct access to the beach club for added convenience. An additional Jacuzzi is located on the bridge deck, and Icon also boasts a full toy box complete with diving gear, water sports kit and towable toys.

Icon is managed for charter by Bluewater with charters starting from €500,000 per week.
