Extraordinary ICON – A TALE OF TWO YACHTS





Icon Yachts are a firm made up of some amazing men and women…functioning in an amazing business…and setting up some amazing solutions!
This online video is the very first in a collection that shall be documenting the development of two very sizeable yachts a person, a 280′ Tim Heywood designed Superyacht, and the other a amazing and unique conversion project designed by Redman Whitely Dixon.
I have visited ICON a few times now, and the thing that stands out the most to me about this firm is their commitment to study and improvement so that the yachts they create are strong and suit for intent.
I search ahead to returning in February of next 12 months to see how they are progressing!

  1. in my letter to santa this year… Dear Santa I know the melting ice caps at the north pole may have resulted in some budget cutbacks this christmas so instead of an Icon Superyacht I'd really appreciate it if you could fit a Pershing 9X in my christmas stocking. TBH it doesn't even have to be brand new as long as it is in immaculate condition. P.S. I've been a good boy all year.

  2. Pardon me, I was wondering if I might make a request. Could you produce a video, strictly on the "Best Luxury Expedition Yachts" and what companies are at the forefront, concerning Luxury expedition Yachts. Possibly explain the Ice class rating system that is used, and how that works. Could you not just have a hull, that is rated to safely sail through broken up ice, but not rated to break ice per say? From what I have read, Ice Breaker Hulls are rather rough through the water, is that true? Thank you for you'r time, you'r channel is superb!

  3. This is what I'm talking about 🙂 Keep up good work!

  4. Ragnar. Now you have my attention. I must do some figuring and thinking. She checks every box for me. Room for submersable, Ice hull, and I am guessing long range. The boat I buy will be for personal use, no charter, but she will need to be a real blue water boat. I fully intend on crossing oceans and seeing the world while I can. No more deck of an aircraft carrier like when I was young 40 years ago. As a rule it will be me and the crew. Sometimes friends or family, or crew friends and family. In my family I am the only one who doest get sea sick, and doesn't mind rough seas. It's all about water tight integrity, strength, and power. I like this one. Let me do some thinking.

  5. Maybe you can answer this Question ??? Do any of the Yacht's you're seeking to sell will come fitted with Fire suppression system ?? And how many yachts have you sold in the past have such a system

    Another Question .. In the era of piracy at sea .. why on earth are designers completely ignorant of such dangers .. that ships .. now face ?? If am spending my hard earned cash on such a vessel I would at least want a vessel that is difficult for pirates to sneak aboard from the stern ,, As a good number of vessels can easily be over run and taken control in under 6 mins …

  7. I like the idea a lot, about using an old anchor handling vessel, to redo as a luxury explorer vessel! 👍🏻

  8. I like the part where you talk about Icon thinking outside the box while standing next to an Icon model that is literally inside a box. 🙂

    Really enjoy the channel!

  11. Hey Dave, great video by the way.
    can you please note in a somewhat itemized way the savings of a conversion versus a build from the ground-up in a future video.
    I think it would be awesome to see the side-by-side difference

  12. Fantastic video! Would love to see the technical spaces on both of these yachts. Would be fascinating to understand the differences between a bespoke superyacht engine room and one that started life as a commercial vessel. Thanks again!

  16. What was the yacht at 1:23? Icon Legend?

  17. I am always proud to express my Dutch heritage but when seeing your vlogs I get even more proud. I would like to know more about the economics and in specific when looking at engines. In commercial vessels as the pre-Ragnar it is less of an issue as I would imagine any private individual would look upon. How do they change the existing engine array to match the luxury yachting specs for consumption?

  18. Great content! Would love to see more Icon Yachts! Keep it up

  19. Ragnar What a fabulous vessel it promises to be, looking forward to seeing more. If ever I could afford a super Yacht then this would be it.
    David so nice to see genuine passion.
    Cheers

  20. I think Ragnar looks great, it's just not the usual shape. I can only imagine the potential with all that space in the stern… i think some lucky owner is gonna have champagne in a hot tub while watching calving glaciers! Nice video!

  21. Commercial (and especially military)hulls are still the best
    The money and time that goes into making them as efficient as possible is way higher than on any superyacht that gets his own hull

  22. Ragnar is spectacular! Icon is a name I was unfamiliar with. Problem Solved!

  23. Can you make more video about conversation yacht pro and cons

    Already converted yacht please

  25. Another great video, really like the idea of an explorer, and that one looks amazing!

  26. I'm pumped to see future updates on that Icon 280.

  27. I’m a big fan of your videos AND how informative they are. It’s fascinating to see all the different types of yachts and there systems. If possible could you show the different types stabilization systems they use on yachts? For instance my wife is no fan of a rocking ship.

  28. Amazing video. Well done!

  29. Thanks David, now I can’t focus in my BioChem class cuz I’m day dreaming about Legacy and traveling the world 😂

  30. Great video, thanks. Question: Do hull's degrade in strength over time and if so, how does the likes of ICON resolve this on donor vessels.

    Reply
  31. Another fascinating video. I have always enjoyed explorer yachts. They offer a much more fascinating and diverse set of possible locations to explore. I would think one would get bored going to the "same old" beaches again and again.

  32. Man, I love this channel so much!

  33. Repurpose,,,,my hat is off to icon for this,,,,
    As we humans are destroying our planet,,,,the resources needed to build a new yacht is removed by repurposing an older vessel……well done !!!!

  34. Extremely interesting I look forward to seeing more on these two projects. Good job.
