From 52 to 80 feet top and smart sailboats, monohulls and catamaransIntroduzione:
ICE Yachts is a new entrepreneurial reality, young brand, but not experienced.
It was born from the meeting of professionals with a passion for innovative materials, who wanted to bring together their interests and their know how, formed who in the nautical, who in motor racing (Paris Dakar rally), within the newly born ICE Yachts.
The objective of ICE Yachts is the application of special technologies aimed at custom made products in the fields of boating, architecture, high tech industry and automotive.
Among the first steps the settlement in the Salvirola warehouses and the reuse of manpower and specialized technicians of the famous CN Yacht 2000 shipyard, to which new forces have been added to the shipyard's direct dependence. To complete the workforce are also present in the company craftsmen specialized in various sectors, such as carpentry, fiberglass, plant engineering.
The numerous boats built, authorize to think that in this market segment the strong skilled workforce, now partially merged into ICE Yachts srl, has distinguished itself for its construction capabilities.
These skills are also confirmed by the designers of a certain fame with whom we collaborate, who choose our reality to realize their best projects certain of the excellent final result dictated by these synergies.
The structure has recently started the realization of custom made carbon arms for the light industry sector, prototypes in the field of furniture and is in negotiation for three new important sailing hulls that are and remain the core business of the company.
Concept & Design
The Ice Yachts team develops on their own, supported by important architects and nautical designers, the preliminary design of the boat.
This is the initial phase in which both the positioning and the objectives in terms of performance and space exploitation are defined.
Ice Yachts takes care of all the aesthetic, structural and plant engineering aspects of the project, interiors, materials, sail plan and deck equipment, creating an excellent mix between design, functionality and performance, because a real ICE Yacht must have a winning look but equally efficient and fast.
The hull of a sailboat is the fulcrum on which the whole project is based. If it is a winner, the bulk of the work to make a “great boat” is done.
We at Ice Yachts believe that a winning hull should encompass two essential concepts, the development of design waterlines that allow it to perform out of the ordinary combined with state-of-the-art construction and technology to be robust and lightweight.
Only a shipyard with a strong technical know-how, which has its foundations on many boats built over the years and on a team of people with strong experience gained over the years, has the opportunity to be at the forefront in these two aspects and can build boats that stand out from the others.
Fundamental is the 360 degree vision of the product, to conceive and realize it using the best of past experience, but innovating and improving the concept boat after boat.
Ice Yachts in tandem with Felci Yacht Design has demonstrated in recent years to be able to design and build boats always winning based on the following qualities:
- Fast and marine boats.
- All-round hulls, fast both upwind and stern, little or much wind.
- Elegant boats with modern lines that do not lose their charm over time.
- Hulls built in epoxy resin and carbon hybrid fabrics in vacuum infusion, to offer strength, lightness, without taking away comfort to ‘use.
- The care and engineering of the reinforcing structures, laminated on site, one by one vacuum, the guarantee of a superior quality boat.
- The deck plans designed to interpret the best features of a boat that today allows you to race the best and tomorrow accompany you on a comfortable cruise.
- The choice on boats over 60 feet of the lifting keel, which provides superior performance and safety in accessing the majority of berths with a reasonable draught, is fundamental.
- Hulls designed and built also to cross the oceans, for shipowners who do not set navigation limits.
- Hulls designed and built to make you dream while sailing fast and safe, admired once moored in port.
Our mission: to make boats with which our owners can cover as many miles as possible, both cruising and regatta, in dark and comfort but at high average.
The interiors of the Ice Yachts are designed following the following guiding concepts: design, space management, practicality of life on board, comfort.
The details, finishes, quality of wood and wood used are the best on the market. We do a constant research in order to sift the news and new materials available.
The shipyard proposes a neo-classical look with a play between the teak that on board means tradition, but which is worked with the horizontal stripes and contrasts with modern design elements and light colors of the ceiling and side panels of the plexiglass windows.
There are also dark brown leather inlaid details, which embellish the dinette table and the doors of the closets.
In the bathrooms there are carbon sink tops and a carbon insert where the shower unit is housed.
The teak flooring, but milled with milled tiles that reproduce the staves of a parquet of important dimensions.
The site also offers an alternative interior in bleached wood, with a light and very bright color effect, developed with the collaboration of our Swedish agent following a Scandinavian input of light and bright colors declined with Italian design.
The ductility of the shipyard and the close collaboration with the studio Felci Yacht Design also allow us to study and choose other materials following the tastes of our customers.
The systems are a fundamental component of the boats, they allow the conduction and maneuvering, and all the functions on board.
There are two important phases, the choice of components to be assembled and the type of assembly realized.
In the choice of components is very important the experience gained in many years of use of the same on board, there is measured the real goodness of the component both as operational performance and as durability.
Ice Yachts puts a great commitment in the research and selection of accessories and equipment on board with a constant search for the novelty of the market.
The design of the systems and their realization in a workmanlike manner are very important. It is necessary to analyze where to assemble the different components and think that they will have to be maintained in the future.
So everything must be accessible in the best possible way, the passages between the various rooms of the boat well studied and rational.
The experience and know-how of the shipyard allow us to realize efficient and very reliable systems. The construction in small series, without dozens of countermoulds, allow an unmatched accessibility in the boats offered on the market today.
We also have the possibility to interact with the customer to equip the boat according to his wishes and needs.
