“Work started on the project last January with the removal of the old interior, concrete ballast and steel parts, which the owner organised himself,” says operations director at Diana Yacht Design Bart de Haan. “While this took place, we were approached by the owner to create a new exterior design. After the design was more or less finished the owner decided to have the rebuild at Icon.”
The project will be managed by Verkerk Yachting Projects, with design and engineering provided by Diana Yacht Design. The project is scheduled for completion in the summer 2015, and will be chartered in areas such as Antarctica, Greenland and the North Pole.
