The Icon ER175 High Speed Bullet

The new Icon Yachts ER175 is a high speed Superyacht that is built for style and speed. From looking at the above image she has similar lines and dynamic styling to that of a bullet shot from the barrel of a gun, she just oozes speed. She is designed and engineered by Ivan Erdevicki Naval Architecture & Yacht Design who are based in Vancouver, Canada. As seen in her design name she is 53.3m (175ft) in length and can reach a speed of 31+kts.

The combined team of Icon Yachts and designer Ivan Erdevicki have definitely created something special. Her interior design and decor has been intentionally left open so that the owner will be able to create and design to his/her liking. The type of owner that the Icon 175 is designed for is someone that is looking for a powerful and stylish fast cruising yacht that will turn heads in any port, marina and anchorage it visits.

Her hull and superstructure are one integrated structure, and along with the hulls long waterline that is designed for fuel efficiency will ensure for some smooth cruising. Incorporated within her large and spacious interior she will have a full beam owners suite forward on the main deck, with another 4/5 guest cabins on the lower deck with direct access to the main deck separate from the crew. Also on the main deck she will have the main saloon and bar area that opens out onto the aft deck where guests can be entertained and relax. She will have a full beach club aft and tender storage separate from the beach club so that guest are no disturbed. The tenders can be launched via hydraulic side doors aft. The upper deck will include a jacuzzi and seating area that is perfect for al fresco dining.
