Ice 62

One of the things that seem to differentiate Italian millionaires from other millionaires is that they have a passion for fast sailing yachts. That makes them my preferred millionaires

Have a look at the insolent beauty of the new Ice 62, a Felci design. It's a carbon light and strong boat (only 14 000kg) and that reduced weight has not only to do with the high tech hull but also with a very modern lifting torpedo keel that when down gives it a 4m draft maximizing the effect of the ballast. That draft makes possible a relatively ballast (3 500kg) for the same generated RM that would require a much bigger one for a reasonable cruising draft.
