The Icon, in roads off the coast of Portofino certainly does not go unnoticed by yacht enthusiasts and pleasure boaters, who enjoyed watching this 68-metre vessel, used for luxury charter cruises.

The Icon was built by the Dutch shipyard Icon Yachts in 2009 and can hold up to 12 passengers in 7 suites, to which are added another 17 crew members. On board are a number of entertainment features, starting with an enormous beach club for relaxing near the water. There is also a well-equipped gym and a jacuzzi on the deck from which to enjoy the view.

Icon, with its steel hull and aluminium superstructure, has two MTU engines allowing it to reach a maximum speed of 16 knots with 6 thousand miles’ autonomy after it has filled its fuel tanks with 193,200 litres of fuel. An advanced stabilisation system on board reduces rolling and offers passengers exceptional levels of comfort at anchor and while sailing.

Equipped with a wide selection of water toys, Icon helps its passengers transform the Mediterranean into their very own private playground. There are jet skis, water skis, two kayaks, inflatables, including a huge slide, and paddleboards. The megayacht also has two tenders, one of which is a 7.8 metre Long Island tender.

When it was sighted in Portofino it was under charter, which it does throughout the summer months. The cost of a week on board the Icon is 500 thousand euros plus expenses, estimated to be around 500,500 euros.
