74m M/Y Ilona completes maintenance period at ICON Yachts

The 74m custom Amels-built superyacht, M/Y Ilona has recently completed a nine-week maintenance period at the ICON Yachts shipyard in the Netherlands, ahead of her planned summer season cruising the Mediterranean. 

According to ICON, Ilona arrived at the yard for intensive maintenance works, which included an extensive overhaul of her four Naiad stabilisers, touch-ups on her anticorrosive systems, antifouling and various technical upgrades.

During her time at the yard she was one of six projects underway at the facility, alongside an 84m new build motor yacht by Tim Heywood, the 77m explorer superyacht Legend, and the 52m Amels superyacht Seahorse. 

Launched in 2004, Ilona has since undergone radical cosmetic changes, including the relocation of her helicopter landing pad, which is now located above the bridge deck, opening up the main deck aft for living and entertaining space. 

She also spent time at the STP Shipyard in Palma de Mallorca at the close of the Mediterranean cruising season last year.

Following her yard period, Ilona undertook a Gibraltar crossing, arriving at OneOcean Port Vell in Barcelona to begin her busy 2016 summer season.

She offers accommodation for up to 16 guests on board, and is capable of carrying up to 28 crew members.
