Due to the increase of number of refit projects at Icon Yachts, the shareholders of the shipyard have decided to expand their facilities by building a new floating shed in order to welcome more and bigger projects.
The new shed will mean an increase of capacity of almost 100% with dimensions of 130m long x 30m wide with 28m of mast clearance. Construction started this month, with completion expected at the end of this year.
Icon Yachts is in growth mode - over the past year the Dutch yard has taken on more than 25 new employees, with over 300 meters of yacht projects currently at the yard.
Recent refit launches include: Secret (82m Abeking & Rasmussen); the 67m Global (Lurssen); Virginian (62m Feadship) and other confidential projects.
