ICON Yachts reveal 120m yacht concept Expose with 'floating' superstructure

ICON Yachts reveal 120m yacht concept Expose with 'floating' superstructure

Acting on increased demand for 100m-plus superyachts, Dutch builder ICON Yachts has collaborated with New York design agency Impossible Productions Ink on a 120m concept with a ‘floating’ superstructure.

In June we reported that the top end of the superyacht building industry appeared healthy, with 13 superyachts of 100m or more under construction in May. When Boat International’s Top 100 list was published in February, there were 25 privately owned yachts of 100m or more in existence. ICON Yachts has also noticed market forces pushing in this direction.

‘Previously the demand for yachts was predominantly focused on the 60m yachts,’ notes Jen Wartena, Managing Director of ICON Yachts. ‘Lately, we have received an increased requests for superyachts of 100m and up. Our shipyard and our team of experienced people are perfectly equipped to meet such demand. We have extensive expertise built up over the past years and with our yard located right at open sea, it is easy for these type of yachts to be built here and set sail right away.’

The builder’s new concept Expose measures 120m overall, with an 18.8m beam. The exterior styling, by Impossible Productions Ink, is influenced by modern supercars, in particular the crease lines etched into the superstructure. But the most notable exterior feature is the 'floating' superstructure. The impression is emphasised by the heavily-glazed main deck, which accommodates the all the entertainment areas, spa spaces, a pool and features a grand double height entrance.

Inside, Expose offers ‘loft-style living’ with tall spaces and floor-to-ceiling windows in all the living areas. The concept also features an inside-outside pool with a glass bottom, an infinity spa pool, a 900 square metre spa and entertainment space, panoramic saloon, 3D surround cinema, panoramic viewing pod on the sundeck, wine cellar, humidor and chef's table. The precise layout can be arranged to suit an owner.

ICON Yachts will present Expose during the Monaco Yacht Show. Its booth is in the Holland Pavilion in Darse Nord, stand number QD53.
