Turkish studio Red Yacht Design and Dutch design firm Dykstra Naval Architects have teamed up to develop a new 64-meter futuristic superyacht called ICE Kite, a family cruiser with a displacement of 500 GT. The yacht will be accompanied by a specially designed 26-meter vessel called ICE Ghost, with the items necessary for research.

A distinctive feature of ICE Kite is a unique kiting system, which was developed in cooperation with a German entrepreneur. This system works in tandem with lower emission engines. It is installed in the bow and in suitable weather can increase the yacht's efficiency.
The ICE Kite hull is more like a sailing yacht hull with its shape and low resistance. It will be built of lightweight aluminum, the superstructure will be carbon fiber.
According to Red Yacht Design, Mother Nature has become the main muse for the exterior design. Guests have at their disposal 475 m² of open space with a wide variety of entertainment options.
Aft is an expansive beach club with a cascading waterfall and a majestic staircase leading straight to the water. The semi-open sun terrace is surrounded by a solid glass fence, and the cockpit, which is called the "Kite interior saloon", is surrounded by a human-sized glass wall. With an all-glass finish, this extraordinary area provides a 180 º view.
In terms of seating capacity, the ICE Kite can accommodate up to 10 people in 4 cabins. From the owner's suite, which spans the full beam of the yacht, the path leads directly to the main deck through a private entrance and a large en suite bathroom. The lower deck features a spa area where guests can relax.
ICE Kite accompanies the support vessel ICE Ghost throughout. It is designed to carry a seaplane, a manned submersible boat, a 12-meter RIB and two jet skis.
As reported by Red Yacht Design: “The owner is interested in building both ICE Kite and ICE Ghost at the Dutch shipyard. More details will be announced after the start of construction. ”
