Icon 280 superyacht construction is well underway
Icon Yachts has posted a video update on the construction of the Icon 280 superyacht.
The 84m superyacht is scheduled for delivery in the summer of 2020. The project is designed by Tim Heywood with naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.
Based on the 76m hull and superstructure redesigned and lengthened to 84m. The vessel will accommodate 19 guests. The owner's suite has 126sqm and it's located on the upper deck.
“The new bow and transom design were quite a challenge and involved adding around 165 tons of steel,” says Perry van Oossanen, who is overseeing the naval architecture. “We worked with laser scans to develop the construction drawings, which involved some old-fashioned shipbuilding skills that was all part of the charm of the project for us.”
