67.61 metre superyacht Icon sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 67.61 metre motor yacht Icon, jointly listed for sale at Fraser and Camper & Nicholsons, has been sold with Peter Bennett at bluewater acting for the buyer.
Designed by Redman Whiteley Dixon and built in steel and aluminum, she was delivered in 2010 as the first yacht from the Dutch yard Icon Yachts. A comprehensive refit in 2014 added five metres to her length and also added a number of fresh features. She now has a five metre infinity swimming pool and has been fitted with a large six person sauna, large gym, shower and dive store.
A high volume interior with design by Studio Linse is elegant and contemporary, accommodating up to 14 guests in seven cabins. These consist of a split-level master suite, three VIP suites, two twins and a convertible twin that can also act as a home cinema, all with entertainment systems and en suite bathroom facilities.
The main saloon is vast and has comfortable seating, a bar and an entertainment centre including a 50-inch Pioneer television screen, a stereo surround sound system and a server delivering on-demand video and audio throughout the guest areas. Forward is a formal dining area with seating for 12 guests.
The open plan upper saloon offers a restful atmosphere with settees and armchairs in front of a 37-inch LCD television screen and with a bar close to hand.
A major attraction is the large beach club offering such features as a bar, ice maker, television screen and Hammam. Twin 2,480hp MTU diesel engines give her a range of 6,000 nautical miles and she is fitted with zero-speed stabilisers.
Lloyd's classed and MCA compliant, Icon was asking €48.5 million, and will be available for charter with bluewater from 2018.
