The Italian-built Aicon 56 perfectly reflects a wise style. An extra visibility is afforded by the familiar double-eye-shape side windows on most modern Italian motoryachts.
With 22.4 degrees of deadrise amidships and 16.8 degrees at the transom, the 56 is well suited for offshore service. She is responsive to the throttle, accelerates evenly and is predictable in high-speed turns.
Styling and interior design are not taken lightly in Italy, and if your taste in yachts is not encumbered by tradition, you will find the 56 a comfortable fit. Her exterior lines are a familiar refinement of what American yachtsmen seem to favor in the breed. Her rakish superstructure is accented with a low-slung arch. It is thoughtfully fitted with an extension that positions the radar above the captain s cap. Her slight reverse sheer terminates in a reverse transom that borders an integral swim/tender platform.
Rail gates are fitted on the side decks, and a hydraulic passerelle that can be retracted or deployed from shore by remote control.
An impressive, polished, stainless-steel framed sliding glass door on the afterdeck leads to the main saloon. Almost all the stainless steel aboard the 56 is fabricated at the yard. Aicon also crafts its own interiors, and the 56 s high-gloss cherry joinery has the detail and luster Italian yacht builders are famous for.
Interior decks and bulkheads are made of foam-cored FRP panels bonded in place there s virtually no plywood in the 56. Another element that promotes solidity and strength: a hull-to-deck joint that s secured with Sikaflex 292 polyurethane adhesive and stainless steel bolts on five-inch centers and four thoroughly hull-bonded bulkheads, two of the watertight collision-type, one fore, the other aft.
The engineroom is accessible from the afterdeck and, unlike some enginerooms on other manufacturers designs, is quite spacious and thoughtfully laid out. Machinery installations seem neat and tidy, and service points on the main engines and auxiliary systems appear to be within easy reach. Fuel is carried in two stainless-steel wing tanks that gravity feed a day tank on centerline. An 11kW generator with a sound shield is behind the engines. It has a top speed of 27.6 knots @ 2200 rpm.
A small compartment abaft the machinery space is designated as crew s quarters on the arrangement plan. The lazarette is accessible from the swim platform and is segregated with a watertight bulkhead.
