History of ICON Yachts
In 2005, superyacht industry veteran Wim C. Koersvelt and two associates opened ICON Yachts in Harlingen, The Netherlands. Rather than to build unique, “one-off” custom superyachts that would require three or more years to design and construct, ICON Yachts was founded on a groundbreaking new concept. The shipyard offers a 62.5-metre “pre-engineered” superyacht platform that combines a “blueprinted” hull credited to Jourke van der Baan with the opportunity for owners to fully customise their yachts from the waterline up.
ICON Yachts has delivered on this concept, delivering several superyachts to date with exceptionally short build times in the two-year range. In addition, ICON is dedicated to maintaining one of the “greenest” shipyards in the yachting industry, and outfits each yacht it builds with equipment to help reduce its environmental impact.
