MANUFACTURER’S COMMENTS:

The ICE YACHTS shipyard presents in the market the new ICE 54, a fast cruiser dedicates to passionate and competent owners that seek enjoyment and strong emotions at the helm. Built with highly innovative materials and advanced construction techniques the ICE 54 is in a league of its own in all that regards performance, comfort on board and ability to take on even the toughest conditions at sea.

Excellent for demanding cruises and regattas. The design is inspired by the shapes of the model ICE 52, with the same qualities that made it a successful boat with more than10 examples but built also with some changes to increase comfort and liveability both during navigation and at anchor. In fact, ICE 54 has a freeboard increased by 6 cm and a total length increased by 2 feet, that allow the generation of wide interior. Therefore ICE 54 joins the ICE 52 production, enhancing the characteristics of comfort, luxury and habitability. The “scimitar-like” design of the bow and “smiling” carving shape of the stern, trademarks of the shipyard, come from the regatta boat ICE 33, launched in 2014 and real protagonist to all regattas.

The hydrodynamics are nothing less than impressive. The water lines allow the ICE 54 to glide at very high speeds due to its max beam of 4.65m and the carefully studied appendages also grant the yacht great upwind capabilities: the ICE 54 shows no problem in taking on wind coming from extremely narrow angles.
To guarantee this level of performance are the advanced technologies used in the construction process and the elevated skill of the artisans which have great experience and expertise in their field.This avant-garde project is realized by Felci Yacht Design.

The numbers are impressive… The boat weighs 13 tons, less than the average boat in the same category; has almost 160 m2 of sail surface when going upwind, more than 400 when downwind and great stability thanks to the shape and the weigh/keel ratio.

Hull and deck are laminated with infusion technique, in sandwich of composite materials using glass-carbon fibres with epoxy resin and PVC foam core with different density and thickness. The use of 3-step infusion process (infusion on the outer skin, vacuum bonded core, infusion on the inner skin) was chosen because it allows to obtain an optimal control of the laminate with a maximum percentage of the final resin equal to 35-40%; therefore, necessary to obtain minimum weight and maximum mechanical properties of the laminate. The localized reinforcements are made with unidirectional and biaxial carbon fibres.

The structures either longitudinal or transverse (bulkheads and floors) are entirely vacuum laminated in epoxy sandwich using glass-carbon fibers and PVC foam cores at various densities. The chainplates of shrouds, forestay and backstay are composite and steel made.

These choices, in addition to containing the weights, give solidity and strength to the boat, which can support the continuing stress and the strong loads during navigations.

The fin keel is made of Weldox steel with high characteristics and a lead torpedo also offer the advantage to reduce in percentage the weight of the ballast and therefore to reduce also the boat displacement, for equal righting moment.

The study of the wheel, eventually made of carbon, provides an optimum control in all conditions.
All these characteristics help to keep very high performance in all conditions, both in regatta and in cruise.

DESIGNER’S COMMENTS:

After the numerous examples of ICE 52 launched, a new “restyling” has been studied in collaboration with the shipyard that has allowed some elements to be updated without distorting the essence and concept of the original project. To obtain more internal height, the freeboards are increased by 7 cm and some elements, such as the aft toilet and the galley, have been slightly enlarged to facilitate the interior habitability and overall ergonomics. Have also been added some valuable stylistic details always marked to keep the style clean and essential. From the general point of view, the genoa rail was proposed on the deckhouse, which allows an even closer windward angle without using “inner barber” and some improvements have been studied from the point of view of deck equipment and rigging. Important to note that the dual soul of fast “racer” and comfortable and elegant “cruiser”, already highlighted by the results in many races and the market success of the ICE 52, remains unchanged.
