Icon Yachts builds custom superyachts based on a proven hull and engineering platform that allows the shipyard to provide shorter build times and competitive pricing.
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 customize 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 her environmental impact.
Each of Icon Yachts’ new 62.5-metre superyachts to date has had a different renowned design team. Icon, the shipyard’s first launch, has exterior styling by Redman Whiteley Dixon and an interior design by Studio Linse. Tim Heywood Design created the exterior styling for Baton Rouge, delivered in 2010, while Redman Whiteley Dixon did the interior design. In 2013, Maidelle launched with exterior styling by Redman Whiteley Dixon and an interior design by Christiano Gatto Design.
In addition to new superyacht construction in steel and aluminium, Icon Yachts offers refit services for luxury yachts and commercial vessels up to 150 metres in length.
