CCN Yachts and AES Yacht from Turkey are collaborating on the construction of the first vessel in the AES yard’s new line of ICE yachts, the 223-foot explorer design, Days.

Delivery of the new model is expected in the first half of 2018 and construction phases that have been completed include steel and aluminum fabrication, grid blasting and primer painting, all tank connection lines are finished and 30 percent of plumbing has been completed.

The boat’s interior was designed by Italian studio Hot Lab and naval architecture was handled by Turkish company Endaze Marine Engineering. Project management is being supervised by Jacques Potgieter.

Highlights of Days include five decks and 8.9 feet average interior headroom. The garage holds a 26.3- and a 29.6-foot tender, a large beach area and a helipad on the foredeck. There’s also a swimming pool on the main deck.

The owner has private access to the skylounge and the business meeting room. The boat will accommodate 12 people including the owners and the master area occupies the entire upper deck and features a spacious forward cabin. All guest cabins are equipped with private heads and walk-in closets.
