"ICE Kite" is a 64 meter superyacht concept with a sleek silhouette that has been designed by Red Yacht Design with naval architecture by Dykstra Naval Architects.
One of the main design features of the yacht is the use of glass that is higher than that of boats at this length. The main goal is to integrate enclosed spaces with more light and exteriors while ensuring a striking outlook. Full glass living areas and spacious exteriors offers the ultimate sense of openness on board.
The hull is designed to be efficient over the entire speed range and not only in a restricted speed interval around the maximum speed. This is accomplished by waterline entries, a high slenderness ratio and low wetted surface area due to a round hull shape. Other significant features include increased comfort on-board with better sea keeping and wave reduction. A well proportioned daggerboard is applied to enable the yacht to make full use of the Kite propulsion system at closer wind angles.
ICE Kite's hull is designed as aluminum, and the superstructure will be carbon fiber for minimizing the weight.
