109m Lürssen superyacht Project Icecap sold
by Chris Jefferies
The 109 metre new-build superyacht Project Icecap has been sold by Moran Yacht & Ship.
Due to be built from steel at German yard Lürssen and launched in 2021, Project Icecap's existence was first revealed in the 2018 Global Order Book. This five-deck motor yacht will feature a total interior volume of more than 6,500GT and Moran Yacht & Ship’s new construction team will supervise the build process.
Details are few and far between at this stage, as might be expected of such a spectacular project, but it is understood that Project Icecap will feature state-of-the-art energy saving, power storage, heating and cooling systems. What’s more, her interior will offer luxurious accommodation for up to 20 guests split across ten cabins.
As the initial rendering above reveals, her key features will include an aft-deck infinity pool, a fold-out superyacht beach club, an upper-deck helipad and three fixed terraces built into the stacked forward superstructure. Most notably, the inverted bow design hints at polar cruising capability, something that is reinforced by the choice of project name.
No designers have been named so far, but Moran Yacht & Ship did reveal that this colossal yacht will be powered by a diesel-electric propulsion system. The asking price of Project Icecap has been withheld, but this is understood to be the largest brokerage deal of 2018 so far.
Other 100 metre plus superyachts currently under construction at Lürssen include the 139 metre Project Redwood — a scheduled 2019 launch — and the 136 metre Project Shu, which began sea trials earlier this month.
