Due to the increase of number of refit projects at ICON YACHTS, the shareholders of the shipyard have decided to expand their facilities by building a new floating shed in order to welcome more and bigger projects.
The new shed will mean an increase of capacity of almost 100% with dimensions of 130 meter long x 30 meters wide with 28 meter of mast clearance. The construction works have already started this month, and completion is expected at the end of this year.
Quote from a captain, “us captains always prefer to stay in the water”. – captain of one the most prestigious yachts in the world. that is why a floating dock for refits makes sense.
ICON Yachts is growing exponentially, over the past year ICON Yachts has recruited over 25 new employees. There is over 300 meters of yacht projects currently at the yard with the new developments coming soon!
North European builds prefer to do their refit and maintenance at ICON Yachts to maintain their pedigree, be closer to the original manufacturers to reduce travel costs, and make sure the refit projects will be on time and on budget, no surprises.
Recent refit launches include: MY Secret, 82 meter Abeking & Rasmussen; the 67 meter M/Y Global, Lurssen; M/Y Virginian 62 meter Feadship and other confidential projects.
