Erdevicki, Inc. of Vancouver, Canada and ICON
Yacht b.v. of The Netherlands, teamed-up to com-
plete the concept analysis and cost estimate to offer
a complete design and build package for the ER175
high-speed superyacht, with high specification and
the highest level of luxurious interior finish. ICON
Yachts is currently preparing a one-metre scale
model of the yacht to reveal its sleek shape, stunning
looks and dynamic swept back lines with a powerful
image and statement of authority, to be seen at stand
QD53 Darse Nord at the Monaco Yacht Show in Sep-
tember.
Edmiston & Co joined the Team last week with a
commitment to promote the ER175 yacht at the Show
along with the seven boats they will be mooring in the
Port Hercules Marina basin (stands QC3 and QH31).
The design will be offered to their clients throughout
the Edmiston worldwide network of brokers. They are
demonstrating their keen intention to present new
ideas and new styling to the superyacht community at
the most important show in Europe.
The styling is a futuristic looking vessel with sleek
lines and pleasing profile with a comfortable luxurious
interior and an ample deck space for leisure and en-
tertaining. With a streamlined and elegant hull, the
boat features three full decks plus the fly bridge deck
all elegantly incorporated within the aerodynamic su-
perstructure and ergonomically designed layout. The
interior detailed design and the decor styling are left
open intentionally to be selected by a prospective
client.
The exceptional 175-ft hull and superstructure are
one harmonious, dynamic, integrated structure with
the design directed towards the boat’s efficiency, sea
worthiness and overall reliability of the yacht, both for
high speed dynamic stability and comfort at sea. The
yacht is under 500 GRT and is designed to be built as a
semi-displacement aluminum hull and superstructure
with 31-plus-knots speed or a full displacement steel hull
and aluminum superstructure with s lower speed but
both with the transatlantic range at cruising speed.
The long-waterline hulls designed for fuel and twin diesels
ensure reliable and smooth sailing. The powerful bullet-
shaped bow defined by natural sweet lines will carve
through the waves and provide reserve buoyancy for a
smooth ride under all conditions..
