icona lifts the lid off its electric fibonacci catamaran concept

following their handcrafted titanium ‘vulcano’ hypercar and compact ‘neo’ city car, icona has taken to the sea with the fibonacci catamaran. it conceptualizes a futuristic, electrically-powered yacht that aims to offer a new experience of sailing. at the same time, its grand piano-like design is a nod to its namesake – the fibonacci sequence.

for the icona fibonacci, the turin-based design studio was inspired by the numbers of nature. it reveals an asymmetrical shape that is reminiscent of a seashell when in its compact form. the roof, covered with solar panels, lifts off like the lid of a grand piano to reveal a large deck to sunbathe and relax. to access this flying upper deck and its control panel, a pair of spiralling staircases – one on either side and end of the boat – climb up from the lower deck.

the 16.7-meter (55 feet) catamaran is powered by a pair of 200 kw (270 hp) motors, each running from two 340 kWh battery packs. this electrical energy ensures it offers at least 12 hours of cruising – as well as 12 hours of stationary time – and an anticipated range of 150 miles (240 km) when moving at 10 knots.
