The Aicon 64’s swept-wing profile and reflective windows are very European, yet the interior cabin design accentuates open space and bolster seating, favorites of American customers. The yacht trims well and moves easily through the water.
The first thing that strucks about the 64 is the interior: it is minimalist. Upon entering through her stainless steel sliding cockpit door, which is constructed in-house at Aicon, you can found a couple of small chairs flush to port and facing starboard, with a retractable TV between them. The look is attractively understated and contemporary. The lounge offers a great vantage point for watching the TV as well as enjoying views out the expansive side windows, which are curved, but not the elliptical shape that has become de rigueur. Aicon’s CEO, Marc-Udo Broich, explained that he wanted to create a bigger interior here and believed that too many contours in design and furnishings take away usable space. It’s this philosophy that led to the 64’s linear look inside.
The boat measures only 15 inches from the sole to the top of the berth’s platform (add five more inches to the top of the mattress). Headroom here averages about 6’8". Once you step out of bed, you can take in wonderful vistas from the two 33-inch Nemo portholes that flank the berth. Make sure they’re not open while underway, though, as they are only about two feet above the waterline. Still, the 64 has a Class A CE rating, which means she qualifies for unlimited ocean voyages. The master also features a walk-in closet and drawers that average 32 inches wide and 14 inches deep.
Besides an original interior appearance and an upscale, contemporary layout, the 64’s got performance, thanks to standard twin 1,350-hp MANs with walkaround access. The 64 made an average top speed of 39.7 mph with a fuel burn of 125.2 gph with the diesels turning their rated 2300 rpm.
There’s more to the Aicon 64 than a clean interior and a solid turn of speed. The 64 features a solid fiberglass bottom with Divinycell coring in the hull sides to keep her structure stiff and weight down. Aicon uses a section system, whereby bases are through-bolted into the boat and sections of the bowrail are installed and set-screwed into the base
