ICE 82 Racer – Fast bluwater Cruiser .
We focused our design on a fast and confortable “all round” yacht, for demanding owners who desire to win Mediterranean Maxi yachts circuit and long range regattas.
Hull shape is the result of most advanced CFD researches, tested in every condition before becoming effective.
Combining performances in all situations with special attention to down-wind condition required on offshore races, and good reaction on light wind and short waves typical of Mediterranean races, has been a major challenge.
On top of this, a confortable and safe sailing during cruising was part of the analysis.
All those expectations will not be disappointed.
For many aspects, hull shape is in line with last improvements of one design class fleet.
An important stern relatively low on water, a powerful bow, a restrained main section and a great balance between form stability and wet surface are some of the main characteristics.
ICE 80 BlackForm stability guarantee power and easy steering also in strong wind conditions both racing and cruising around the world.
A low wet surface allow top performances and good waves passage also in the difficult conditions typical of Mediterranean Sea
A state of the art lifting keel with a draught ranging from 3,20 to 5 meters will allows performance under sail and shallow waters anchorages.
A deep rudder transmits a safety sensation to the helm-man and crew and maximum and precise control to the boat.
Construction techniques follow the project philosophy. A vacuum infusion of carbon fibers optimize the weights, allowing a 28 tons displacement in racing conditions
An essential interior layout matched with the use of lightened materials is the obvious consequence of the project philosophy, with interior elements often combined with the carbon structure
All those aspects will allow an “aggressive” interpretation of the yacht during demanding offshore races.
