The 90.1 metre Lürssen superyacht Ice has been listed for sale by Greg Gheraia of Blackorange Yachts.
Ice was built by Lürssen in 2005 and picked up the award for Superyacht of the Year at the 2006 World Superyacht Awards. Originally known as Air, she was one of the first vessels to be fitted with electrically-powered Azipod propellers. Diesel-electric generators supply power to two azimuth thrusters, which have the added benefit of giving a comfortable, vibration-free ride as well as seriously reducing emissions while underway.
She was designed throughout by Tim Heywood and sports a minimalist interior by Terence Disdale. Tables and many of the horizontal surfaces were made of limestone, the five bathtubs being carved from solid blocks so large and heavy that the yacht was reportedly built around them.
The master suite is positioned on the main deck forward, together with two VIP or family cabins. Ice is also one of the first superyachts to have her superstructure positioned further forward than usual, to allow for a large helipad aft. She can accommodate up to 14 guests in seven staterooms, with 27 crew members.
Twin generator rooms, with 842kW MWM/Deutz gensets and huge exhaust cleaners, are divided by a walk-through passageway. Emissions and vibrations were reduced to a minimum during the engineering and naval architecture work, developed by Lürssen.
During sea trials, she reached a top speed of 18.5 knots under her Azipods. This 3,268GT yacht for sale has a range of 5,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 15 knots.
Ice is asking €120,000,000.
