Plus WiFi to upload the day’s GoPro output, while downloading the final series of Game of Thrones. M/Y ICON
offers all these trappings and more. “Its beach club and deck areas are superb,” affirms the yacht’s captain, Jeremy Dean. “Walk out of your cabins on the lower deck, passing the gym, sauna and steam room and jump straight in to sea for a morning dip.” At 67.5m, ICON commands the seas like a modern leviathan.
