ICON yacht interior
Twelve guests find space in seven cabins inside ICON. Her interior was designed by Studio Linse at the shipyard where she was built. Her master suite is split across two levels and is unusually spacious for a yacht her size.
A Hammam, sauna, pool and spa facilities are available on board for the comfort of the guests. Seventeen crew members find space in below-deck accommodation.
The yacht also carries a wide variety of water toys, including two regular and one stand-up jet ski, scuba diving equipment, an inflatable platform, sea bobs, water skis, wakeboards, kayaks and paddleboards.
The ICON yacht also has three tenders that can take guests to the mainland or on excursions if required. The interior of ICON is classy and timeless, with minimalist elements and high-quality furnishings.
Natural tones and creme upholstery throughout the vessel make the yacht appear upscale and luxurious.
ICON is 67 metres (221 ft) long with an 11.40 metre (37.4 ft) beam and a 3.80 (12.5 ft) metre draft. She weighs 1295 tons and comfortably cruises at 13 knots which allows her to have a total range of 4,000 nautical miles. Her maximum speed lies at 15 knots, and she is powered by MTU engines.
RWD Design Studio worked on the exterior of ICON. They specialise in elegant and comprehensive yacht designs of mid-sized to large yachts. She has a beautiful black and white exterior with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure.
She features a beach club that opens up onto the swimming platform and a beautiful infinity pool on the aft deck. Her top deck has a jacuzzi and cosy seating areas for guests.
Despite not being one the largest yachts in the world, ICON actually has fantastic deck space with generous areas reserved for sunbathing and relaxing.
Her previous owner Alexander Mazanov paid a reported price of US $50 million for ICON in 2009 and is rumoured to have listed the yacht for sale for US $55 million in 2016. The yacht is available for charter at a weekly rate of US $500,000.
ICON yacht owner – Alexander Mazanov
The original owner of ICON was Alexander Mazanov, a Russian businessman who bought the Icon Yachts shipyard in 2014, saving it from bankruptcy. Mazanov is estimated to have a net worth of US $200 million which he made in the financial sector.
He is rumoured to have had financial problems in recent years and put ICON up for sale in 2016. She was sold to an anonymous buyer in 2017, although details of the transaction have not been released to the public.
