The work of renowned designer Tim Heywood, together with Van Oossannen Naval Architects, this pedigree yacht is underway at Dutch yard Icon Yachts with delivery scheduled for 2020. Interior work is by Gimena Mazzeo Design, with the opportunity for her new owner to put their own stamp on the interior if desired. The yacht represents a one-off chance to secure a Dutch-built yacht of this size without an extended build period. Superyacht Icon 280 combines elegant design work, cutting edge technologies and huge exterior and interior volumes. Effortlessly balancing a timeless elegance with a contemporary edge, this is an exquisite yacht that combines all the best of past, present and future. Every element of the yacht has been designed with her guests in mind. All spaces are generous and bright, offset by modern styling. She features seven cabins for 19 guests.

Over the past 25+ years Frank has built an impressive list of yacht sales (both pre-owned and new construction projects) illustrating his ability to get the job done.

His criterion for success has always been based on three fundamental principles; knowledge of product, honesty and integrity.
