Motor yacht Maidelle is currently cruising the Mediterranean Sea. After hand-over just of the snow blizzard ridden coast of Norway in January, she headed straight South to prepare for her charter season. During her build ICON Yachts worked close together with exterior designer Redman Whiteley Dixon and interior designer Cristiano Gatto.

The delicate exterior art of using unadulterated surfaces to sculpt a defined and fresh looking exterior has been used to great effect. During the detailed development of superyacht Maidelle, important characteristic elements of this particular arrangement emerged. This owner’s mantra has consistently been “a simple, young boat with perfect quality.” – Justin Redman, Redman Whitely Dixon

“The fundamental interventions in the layout reflect the owner’s needs to create wide entertainment areas, both formal and informal, to share with his guests, but it also reflects his need to allow himself roomy spaces for his privacy.”- Cristiano Gatto

The shortlisted designs will now be put forward for a second round of judging by a fully independent judging panel of yacht owners, senior yacht crew and acclaimed naval architects, designers and stylists from within as well as outside the marine industry, who will decide the winners of the coveted golden Neptune trophies.

If luxury yacht Maidelle will be one of the winning yachts, the winners will be announced during a glittering gala evening at the Monaco Opera House on June 21.
