New ICE 80
While an artwork shines with its own light, a masterpiece like this is also able to shine with reflected light, because it is capable of catalyzing natural light and radiating it exponentially.
With the new Ice 80, Umberto Felci has forged a design work that changes with light, depending on whether it is day or night, dawn or twilight. But the concept that Mr. Felci has handed over to Ice Yachts offers much more than its aesthetic side.
Of course, the essential and clean lines, which combine the elegance of the RS with the sumptuousness of bluewater cruisers, are eye-catching and seductive. But, in addition to an ultra-modern hull that seems to be modeled by reflections, the Ice 80 boats many other qualities, starting with the retractable numerically controlled keel that transfers the power of the sail plain to an artefact that will be made entirely of carbon and built according to the highest engineering criteria. This translates into an important advantage for the owner, who therefore will have the opportunity to steer a versatile boat and feel at sea both in the cruising and the racing mode thanks to the race set-up.
