by Miranda Blazeby
A video published by the yard shows a group of invited guests on a backstage tour of the 84 metre yacht which is currently scheduled for a summer 2020 delivery.
A potential owner would be able to take delivery of the yacht 24 months after signing and would have the ability to customise the interior design.
The yacht was based on a 76 metre hull and superstructure which has been redesigned and lengthened to 84 metres.
The extended yacht now includes a heli deck and larger infinity pool aft.
Accommodation will be for 19 guests, or 12 under commercial rules. The accommodation quarters include a 126-square metre master stateroom on the upper deck which will include sea balconies.
Icon chief executive Jen Wartena described the Icon 280 as “a yacht of the very best quality”.
“She boasts an imaginative interior, with surfaces and finishes that catapult this yacht into the next decade. Contemporary yet timeless, she is befitting of the most discerning owner or guest.”
Exterior designer Heywood added: “The more developed design now boasting a touch-and-go Heli Deck and larger infinity pool aft, all benefiting from naval architecture by Van Oossanen, and the experienced engineering input and superb covered building facilities of the Icon yard in northern Holland.”
