The main deck reflects simplicity and style, modernity and efficiency, comfort and versatility. These are the strengths typical of Umberto Felci’s projects. At the stern there is a big relaxation area with direct access to the sea through the tender garage door. This acts as a beach area and as a garage entrance, where it is possible to stow a big tender of considerable size (2,80 m uninflated).
The cockpit is characterised by wide seats with comfortable backs. It’s a generously sized space that allows for a large table and comfortable dining or just for casual conversation over a fine Italian wine. The large side windows enhance the interaction with the outside, making the life aboard more pleasant and bright. The deck equipment, designed to be managed also by a small crew, doesn’t interfere with the boat comfort. The attention to detail of the finishes is impeccable.
High quality components highlight the high standard of the shipyard. All deck details are studied to be ideal for cruiser life but also to be very efficient during a regatta. These are the characteristics that allowed famous Felci boats to win important offshore racing (ARC Atlantic Rally, Giraglia, Antigua Sailing Week, 500×2).
The mast, also available in a tall rig version, and the boom, are in carbon, laminated in autoclave and provided by leading companies in the sector. The sail plan is characterised by an extremely low overlap genoa, by the absence of flying shrouds and by the shrouds attack placed directly on the hull. We can say that on an ICE 54 the owner can find the same space of a few years ago 60 feet.
