Based in the Netherlands, ICON yachts opened its doors in 2005 by yachting-industry veterans who conceptualized a unique new model for building luxury yachts. The shipyard’s founding principles are summed up as “The drive to excel, building better & sooner.” As opposed to the typical archetype for “custom,” one-off superyachts, ICON created a “blueprint” for the yachts’ hulls, courtesy of Jourke van der Baan, while still allowing yacht owners to completely design every aspect of their yachts from the waterline up, allowing for an exceptional level of customization, but less build time. Because of its focus on building luxury yachts to a higher standard and commitment to owners to deliver their yachts promptly, ICON has made a name for itself among the legends of Dutch yacht building. The brand’s dedication to utter excellence garnered accolades within the first few years of opening its doors. ICON’s custom superyachts are build utilizing an established hull and engineering platform that ensures clients receive their expertly produced luxury superyachts faster than a traditional new build.
ICON yachts began its unique legacy in Harlingen, Netherlands. Here the yacht builder’s facilities include large covered sheds and dry docks for yachts up to 150 meters with drafts of up to 7.5 meters as well as a 4,500-ton syncrolift and unrestricted open-water access from locks and bridges. In 2009, only five years after opening its doors, ICON received the ISO 9001:2008 certificate from Lloyd’s Register; the builder began one of the first shipyards in the world to receive such recognition. ICON also prides itself on its environmental responsibility. Not only is it one of the eco-friendliest shipyards, but the builder also builds luxury superyachts with a reduced environmental impact as part of its Green Yacht Plus standard. ICON luxury yachts for sale are constructed in steel and aluminum.
