Axebow Motoryacht

Sabdes presented their latest project for Dutch superyacht builder Icon Yachts. The new striking 72.5m Axebow motoryacht is designed by Scott Blee and will be produced by Icon Yachts to the best Northern European standards.

The design of the new yacht is based on Icon Yachts pre-engineered 62m-77m platform but with optimized hull, technical and crew areas. The optimised platform allowed Sabdes significant design freedoms while benefitting from using standard hull modules, technical systems and spaces, and standard crew and service areas. These benefits translate to cost and time savings which could bring the 72.5m design into a reality quickly.

The new craft is powered by twin MTU 12V-4000-M71 diesel engines and has an Ecosilenccer gas cleaning system to eliminate exhaust soot and a HMSA Biological sewage treatment unit.

Axebow motoryacht can accommodate 14 guests in 7 cabins: the upper deck aft is dedicated to the owner with a fullbeam master suite; there are two VIP suites and four guest suites on the lower deck. The four guest suites can be turned into two conjoined rooms becoming VIP suites.

The nine crew quarters are well appointed with a service galley and entertainment center. The captain’s cabin is located on an upper deck directly behind the Bridge.

The sundeck of Axebow motoryacht features a large Jacuzzi, sun-pads fwd and aftwith retractable awning offering a sheltered lounge area, barbecue, bar, fridge, ice maker. The Bridge deck features a Sauna room and Gymnasium. The main deck has a large aft outdoor seating area with casual lounges adjoining and the Main Saloon and Dining area.
