Keel laid on Project Gotham at Icon Yachts

Keel laid on Project Gotham at Icon Yachts

Construction of Icon Yachts' new 46 metre Project Gotham officially began earlier this month with the keel laying ceremony at build yard Jachtwerf Bloemsma in Makkum.

Sold in September 2016 by Bristow-Holmes and due for delivery in spring 2019, this aluminium yacht will feature the Van Oossanen fast displacement hull form, while Ivan Erdivicki will provide both interior and exterior styling.

“With such a striking exterior, it was important that we followed this through to the interior areas of the yacht,” the Canada-based designer said. “However careful consideration was required to ensure that the whole vessel flowed throughout.”

On-board entertainment was a key part of Project Gotham’s design, with a relaxed seating area in the cockpit that can host up to 16 guests and a DJ area on the superyacht sundeck. What’s more, the foredeck will be fitted with a plunge pool, surrounded by sunpads.

Moving inside and Project Gotham will be the first yacht under 60 metres to boast a glass wine cellar in the lower-deck lobby. Accommodation for ten guests is split across five cabins.

Other key features include a side-loading tender garage, superyacht gymnasium, and a comprehensive AV system throughout, complete with pop-up speakers and a private cinema room.

Jen Wartena, CEO of Icon Yachts, added: “This project has been one of the most innovative and exciting projects we have been involved in. The whole team at Icon Yachts are extremely proud to be building this particular vessel and look forward to future hulls for future clients.”

Power will come from a pair of 2,000hp MTU 16V2000 diesel engines for a top speed of 24.5 knots and a transatlantic range of 2,950 nautical miles when cruising at 12 knots.
