Great performances are guaranteed by the advanced technologies used in construction and the quality of the craftsmanship. These are the qualities that have allowed the famous FELCI 61, from which the ICE 60 derives directly, to win the most important offshore races such as: ARC Atlantic Rally, Giraglia, L'Antigua, Sailing Week, 500x 2 and many others. The ICE 60 also is a wonderful and relaxing family cruiser at the same time.
Years of experience in advanced composites and offshore sailing led us to select the best materials and the most refined construction techniques. Ice Yachts are entirely manufactured in our facilities to ensure the highest quality and everything, from the laying of the carbon skin to tightening the last bolt, building process is carefully controlled by our experts.
CONSTRUCTION: TECHNIQUES AND MATERIALS
Hull and deck of the boat are laminated with a sandwich infusion technique using a glass-carbon fiber composite material 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) has been chosen because it allows to obtain optimal control of the laminate. The localized reinforcements are made with unidirectional and biaxial carbon fiber beams. The structures (bulkheads and floors) are either longitudinal or traverse and are made of glass-carbon fiber with PVC foam cores of various densities all entirely vacuum laminated in epoxy. The chainplates of shrouds, forestay and backstay are composite and steel made.
