The Icecat Seventytwo is a 72-foot super hi-tech catamaran created in collaboration with the design firm of the eclectic architect Lucio Micheletti.
The Ice Yachts shipyard is already well established for being the manufacturer of the largest sailing catamarans built in Italy. The Icecat Seventytwo, like the rest of the Ice Yachts multihull fleet, will be made entirely at the futuristic Ice Yachts Cremonese shipyard, featuring expert craftspeople dedicated to building beautiful world-leading catamarans.
The Icecat Seventytwo represents a great step forward in the multihull design with inspirations from the automotive world.
The hull has streamlined and slender lines, characterised by an almost minimal cleanliness and practical essentiality at the service of maximum performance. The goal is to obtain a catamaran capable of reaching over 30 knots of max speed.
The refined sportiness and ergonomics of each space on board allow you to create excellent sailing characteristics, the comforts that a multihull of over 70 feet must have.
The deck is very clean and essential to allow instruments and controls to be where they are needed, leaving plenty of space for guests and crew.
The cockpit is at the same level of the dinette to create a seamless connection between interiors and exteriors spaces, usable in any condition in maximum safety.
One of the distinctive elements that embodies the values of practicality and liveability on board is the hardtop bimini, which is extremely slender and supported by two very modern arched pillars.
The internal layout has two accesses per hull to ensure maximum privacy and flexibility with life on board. The portside hull consists of a crew area aft with a private entrance, where there is a spacious cabin with head.
From the second entrance forward, the spacious master guest cabin can be accessed, featuring a double bed and dedicated head. In the starboard hull, aft, there is the owner’s cabin with sleeping area, a very large and bright walk-in closet and a roomy head.
There is a second guest cabin forward with bunk beds and head. The separation of the interior spaces has been designed to give guests a unique experience on board without compromising on comfort and functionality.
When it comes to the construction of the vessel, the yard chose the multistep infusion technique (infusion of the external skin, vacuum bonding of the core, infusion of the internal skin) because it allows perfect control of the final piece, with the higher percentage of impregnated resin. That means having a combination of lightweight and the best mechanical characteristics.
The IceCat 72 has a speed under motor of 14 knots with a speed under sail of 30 knots.
