We have called it the “Porsche of sailing boats” because it perfectly embodies the philosophy of “premium” yachts. We are talking about the brand new ICE 54, and it is the evolution of one of the most successful boats in the “premium” sailing yacht segment in recent years, the ICE 52, of which it is the worthy heir.
THE FIRST IMAGES OF ICE 54
Here are the first photos of the boat, just out of the shipyard in Salvirola (Cremona) and then at the Marina di Varazze (Savona) where the boat, which we assume will fly the Swiss flag due to its registration in Basel (Basel), was put in the water.
A detail on all of them: the long dolphin boat integrated in the hull, with the double function of anchor nose and attachment point for a whisk (in the picture is obviously missing the reinforcement cable that will be armed on the two eyebolts and that will give further resistance to the dolphin boat with Code Zero or asymmetric “on shore”).
As Marco Malgara, owner of the shipyard at the entrance of the Ice Yachts stand at Milano Yachting Week – the Digital Boat Show, says in the interview, the new 54 is more “cool” and chic than the 52, with much more habitability in the aft guest cabins, greater height below deck, better sailing performance, especially upwind.
Listen to the interview and you will know the technical secrets of this absolute novelty.
The Ice 54 promises to be even before the tests, thanks to the water lines of the designers of Felci Yachts, not only among the most voluminous boats in its segment, but also one of the fastest. It is an evolution of the hull of the 52 that won races like the Palermo – Montecarlo and the Middle Sea Race! And on board she had air conditioning, electric winches…
