The ICE 62 TARGA is an authentic, high-quality fast luxury cruiser with distinctive flare, sophistication and elegance defined by the innovative design. This new model features a striking carbon roll bar with T top bimini and ensures for a very a clear, safe and clean deck.
This yacht is perfectly suited for those looking to sail short handed in maximum comfort on a fast and robust built yacht.
The boat weighs 19.9 tons, 25% less than the average boat in the same category; has almost 220 m2 of upwind sail area and great stability thanks to the shape and the displacement/keel ratio.
The hull and deck of the boat are laminated with a sandwich infusion technique using a glass-carbon fibre composite material and PVC foam core with different densities and thicknesses which has been chosen as it allows to varying load capabilities. The use of a 3-step infusion process (infusion on the outer skin, vacuum bonded Corel infusion on the inner skin) has been chosen because it allows obtaining optimal control of the laminate.
The localized reinforcements are made with unidirectional and biaxial carbon fiber beams. The structures (bulkheads and floors) are either longitudinal or traverse and are made of glass-carbon fiber with PVC foam cores at various densities all entire vacuum sandwich is laminated in epoxy.
This construction method, along with limiting weight where possible ensure for a yacht that is solid, strong and able to withstand the repeated stresses and heavy loads exerted when seeking pure performance when sailing in the most challenging conditions.
The chainplates of shrouds, forestay, and backstay are composite and steel made.
This modern design is marked by a reversal bow (scimitar shape), with a carbon bowsprit of 1.3 meters and, twin rudders and a draft with variable depth from 2.85 to 3.80 meters made possible by a hydraulic lifting system allowing to easily switch from racing mode to cruising mode.
Particular attention has been paid to reduce weight which in turn allows for up to a 195 HP Yanmar engine that reaches a top cruising speed of above 12 knots.
