The ICE 52 RS, designed and concerted by Umberto Felci together with the boatyard's team lead by Enrico Malingri, it is a fast cruiser envisioned for the most competitive owner, who aims to top performance in regattas and at the same time comfort while cruising.
The modern lines feature a reverse bow with a carbon bowsprit of optional length between 1.3 and 1.8 meters, and a Volvo Open 70 inspired stern.
The waterlines, as well as the keel, are designed to deliver the best performance sailing both sharp angles upwind and planning fast downwind.
Also by an engine you can proceed very fast, 9.2 knots is cruise speed!! And in the garage you can fit without deflating a tender of 2.85 meters!!
The high construction technology and the incredible artisan quality guarantee top performances that Ice Yachts deliver with each boat.
Hull and deck are carbon fiber, vacuum infused from a female mold and the carbon structure, also infused, is built directly on board. This choice is not only minimizing the weight, but it also improves the overall structural strength and resilience, hence allowing to withstand the high loads experienced during the most challenging races.
The ICE 52 RS has a Weldox fin with high mechanical properties and a lead bulb CNC shaped that offer to reduce the appendices' weight and improve the righting moment.
The deck layout, Felci Yacht Design signature, combines ease and style, elegance and efficiency, comfort and flexibility. The ICE 52 RS' deck gear has been optimized to withstand bigger loads. The full carbon Hall Spars rig counts double spreaders and it can be constructed with High Modulus Carbon. The backstay is Reckmann.
The cockpit, featuring wide seats and comfy backseats, is definitely oversized and it allows easy handling and maneuverings even with bigger teams onboard.
The deck design was conceived to deliver the optimum compromise between easy handling in long distance cruises and maximum efficiency and performance during races.
