Modern classic racer cruiser
ICE 52 is a very modern yacht, which stands out for performance, comfort on board, and is excellent both for challenging cruises and both for racing.
The design looks like the latest racer ICE 33, which was launched on June 2014 from the same yard, produced in five examples and is the most competitive racing boat of it’s category; the bow’s shape looks like a “scimitar” and the stern has a fascinating carving form.
In the Ice 52 you can find same performances, comfort and space of the 60 feet boats of some years ago.
Regarding aereodynamics profile, the water lines and the appendages allows great perfomances… like the ICE 52′s attitude to go up the wind doing closer edge and is able to glide very fastly thanks to its max beam 4,65 m therefore with stern’s powerful sections.
TECHNICAL DATA TECHNIQUES AND MATERIALS
– 12 Tons of displacement, 25% less than the average of the category
– nearly 140 square meter of canvas to sail close to the wind
– nearly 400 square meter to sail downwind
– great safety thanks to the high stability and strong relationship between weight and ballast.
Hull and deck of the boat are laminated with an infusion techinque in sandwich with composite materials, using glass-carbon fiber with epoxy resin and PVC foam core with different density and thickness. It was chosen because it allows to sustain several strains.
The localized reinforcements are made with undirectional and biaxial carbon fibers.
The structures either longitudinal or traverse (bulkheads and floors), are entirely vacuum laminated in exposy sandwich using glass-carbon fibers and PVC foam cores at various densities.
The chainpaltes of shrouds, forestay and backstay are composite and steel made.
