Ice 62 Targa, the new exclusive version of Ice Yachts 60

The Ice Yachts shipyard presents itself on the market with a brand new product, the Ice 62 Targa, an exclusive and even more easy sailing version of the already very fast Ice 60, which winks at owners looking for a powerful, safe, but above all suitable for solo sailing and fast cruising with maximum comfort.

The Ice 62 Targa is a true fast cruiser of the highest quality with an incredible use of space, with an intriguing line that incorporates the typical stylistic features of the shipyard by inserting functional details such as the distinctive rollbar with carbon T top that stands out from traditional bimini tops. and allows a clear, safe and clean blanket without giving up. 

Derived from the powerful lines of the ICE 60 standard, with a mix of contents inspired by our 62 ‘and 70s, it manages to 
enhance the characteristics of robustness, seaworthiness and performance that distinguish the shipyard and that have led it to success with the addition of a unique and distinctive elegance given by the innovative deckhouse. A star is born: the new Ice 62 TargaA star is born: the new Ice 62 Targa

 Modern design, we are talking about the reverse bow (scimitar) with a dolphin made of carbon 1.3 meters long, it is the big brother and the natural development of the ICE 52, another Ice Yachts bestseller with over 15 examples produced to date.

On the hydrodynamic level, the water lines and the appendages, this time characterized by an unprecedented draft at variable depth, from 2.30 to 3.80 meters, double rudder blades, bow thruster, bow and stern thruster retractable in order to guarantee maximum simplicity of mooring.

Particular attention has been given to weight saving in order to be able to mount a 195 hp Yanmar engine that allows incredible performance even in the absence of wind. With motor it reaches and exceeds 12 knots of top speed!

To guarantee these performances are added the high technologies used in the construction and the incredible quality of a craftsmanship of the highest quality performed by technicians who make use of the experience gained over many years of activity dedicated to the construction of boats that have written history. of the sail.

The shell and deck are infusion laminated from a female mold, the hull is made of hybrid fibers to combine the structural stiffness of carbon with the natural noise and vibration suppression qualities of glass fibers. The deck is full carbon to ensure lightness in the upper part and lower the center of gravity. The carbon structures are also laminated on site and also made in infusion, becoming one with the hull and deck, eliminating creaks and noises. In addition to the classic gluing, the deck is tied to the hull as well as all the bulkheads creating a monolithic and very rigid structure. 

These choices, in addition to containing the weights, give the boat a solidity and sturdiness able to withstand the repeated stresses and heavy loads that are faced even in the most demanding navigations. 

Ice 62 Targa is equipped with a fin made of double Weldox steel with high mechanical characteristics and a torpedo in numerically controlled milled lead that offer the advantage of reducing the weight of the ballast in percentage terms and therefore the total displacement of the boat at the same moment. straightening. The hydraulic lifting system is by the Cariboni company and has variable draft 2.30 / 3.90 in order to obtain racer performance in navigation and at the same time guarantee entry into every port. 

Thanks also to the oversized bulb, it is possible to significantly reduce the heeling in navigation and the roll when stationary in the harbor. Hence, great power in the gaits in which this is essential and minimal displacement in the gaits in which this represents a brake, such as for example the carrying gaits and motor navigation. All this allows you to maintain very high averages in all conditions, both in racing and cruising, sailing or motoring.A star is born: the new Ice 62 TargaA star is born: the new Ice 62 Targa

The two rudders are studied and designed with state-of-the-art technologies and allow impressive control even when the boat is heeling or subjected to heavy aerodynamic loads. The carbon construction always keeps a clear focus on the issue of safety, which is central to both design and construction.
The deck reflects the general lines of the Felci Yacht Design projects, combining simplicity and style, elegance and efficiency, comfort and versatility. 
The cockpit, characterized by large benches and comfortable paramare backrests, is decidedly oversized and allows maximum mobility to numerous crews 

At the stern there are two seats for the helmsman which hide a raft and a useful locker.
To facilitate access from the deck to the platform, there is a ladder fixed to the tailgate that closes at the same time as closing the tailgate.
The large garage, a record in the category and almost at the level of that of a 70-footer, is designed to contain a 3.1 meter tender !!
In the garage there are two electric winches / winches for the opening of the hatch and the handling of the tender, always with a view to the search for comfort and ease of use.

In addition, there are many details that highlight how the study of the bridge was conducted in the search for a synthesis between an ideal deck for a relaxed cruising life and one full of seaworthiness and efficiency, necessary during a long-range navigation or regatta.

The maxi dodger or the bimini protecting the helmsman is beautiful, all goodies designed to underline the focus of the Ice 62 Targa, comfort!

Examples of this research are the hydraulic fairleads in the bow and an electric mooring winch always in the bow. 
Following this same philosophy, the sail plan is characterized by a genoa without overlapping, by the absence of flying shrouds and by the moorings, made of carbon, positioned directly on the hull. 

The length of ft excluding dolphins was of the Ice 62 Targa is under 18 meters to allow access to the discounted rates that some marinas grant to boats of this sizeA star is born: the new Ice 62 TargaA star is born: the new Ice 62 Targa

Thanks to the technologies used for the realization of the interiors, such as the use of lightened panels, a considerable weight saving is obtained compared to a traditional realization, without however renouncing the value of the carpentry work, both in the refinement of finishes and in excellence. of the details. 
The interiors are provided in the 3-cabin version, with 2 large bathrooms with a large open kitchen.

The standard carbon rig is equipped with a very comfortable mainsail roller with electric movement in the boom, very useful to further simplify things both during navigation and when preparing to reduce or lower the sails
The first example of Ice 62 Targa is currently in phase construction in the Ice Yachts shipyard in Salvirola, near Crema and the first boat, for a demanding owner, will be on the water at the end of the year.

The shipyard technicians are available to illustrate and show first-hand the construction quality of the real Made in Italy and the attention to detail that only a product born from the Italian design and construction tradition are able to offer.
