ICE Cat SeventyTwo


Sail Performance





ICECAT seventytwo represents a significant step forward in the multihull design with inspirations from the automotive world. The project was born from the successful collaboration between ICE Yachts and Micheletti+Partners design studio.

The hull has streamlined and slender lines, characterized by almost minimal cleanliness and practical essentiality at the service of maximum performances. The goal is to obtain a catamaran capable of reaching over 30 knots of max speed!

The refined sportiness and ergonomics of each space on board enable enclosing a boat with excellent sailing characteristics such as the comfort that a multihull of over 70 feet must have. The deck is very clean and essential to allow instruments and controls to be where they are needed, leaving plenty of space for guests and crew.

The cockpit is at the same level as the dinette to create a seamless connection between interior and exterior spaces, usable in any condition in maximum safety.

One of the distinctive elements that embodies the values of practicality and liveability on board is the bimini, which is extraordinarily slender and supported by two very modern arched pillars.

The boat is high on the water with a considerable volume in the robust hulls and is designed to minimize nose-diving risk. Speaking of exterior design, the extensive glazing of the coachroof guarantees an extremely light interior and creates a seamless link with the sea.

The internal layout has two accesses per hull to ensure maximum privacy and flexibility with the life on board. The portside hull consists of a crew area aft with a private entrance, where there is a spacious cabin with a head, while the crew cabin is directly connected to the very spacious galley in order to create a separate operating area. The VIP cabin can be accessed from the second entrance forward, featuring a vast space with a double bed and a dedicated head.
In the starboard hull, aft, there is the owner’s cabin with a sleeping area, a very spacious and bright walk-in closet, and a large head. Moreover, there is a second guest cabin with bunk beds and heads, with a diverse entrance as well. The division of the interior spaces has been designed to provide the guests a unique experience on board without compromising on comfort and functionality. The hull and the deck are completely built in sandwich composite materials. Quadriaxial carbon fibers impregnated with epoxy resin are employed, applying multistep vacuum infusion techniques. The core of the sandwich is Corecell with different specific weights and thicknesses. ICE Yachts chooses the multistep infusion technique (infusion of the external skin, vacuum bonding of the core, infusion of the internal skin) for the ICECATS because it allows having perfect control of the final piece, with a higher percentage of impregnated resin. This allows having a combination of light weight and best mechanical characteristics. Besides, local reinforcements are made with biaxial and unidirectional carbon fibers and are optimized by fem analysis. Longitudinal and transversal structures and bulkheads are entirely realized with infusion of sandwich materials alongside the core of PVC and external layers of carbon or carbon plus e-glass fibers. The joints between the chainplate on the bowsprit and the shrouds are made in composite and steel.
