Icon Yachts in the Netherlands has chosen Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology for design, integration, supply and installation of the electrical system aboard the 150-foot Project Gotham superyacht.

Project Gotham is a full-displacement, all-aluminum yacht scheduled for delivery in spring 2019. She is designed in partnership with ER Yacht Design in Canada. She has aggressive exterior styling that Icon describes as “a wolf in wolf’s clothing.”

Icon Yachts is cooperating with Van Oossanen on naval architecture.

Performance expectations: Project Gotham is projected to have a top speed of 26 knots thanks to twin 2,000-horsepower MTU engines. Her cruise speed is listed as 12 knots. With 9,774 gallons of fuel, she's expected to have transatlantic range.
