About ICE 5

Operating in the Bahamas

The pleasantly surprising ICE 5 proves that size can be relative. This 43m Proteksan Turquoise motor yacht easily rivals 50m yachts, with its sprawling outdoor decks spanning multiple levels.  From the main deck level to the bridge deck and up to the sun deck, each offers space for entertaining, lounging and dining options. While the top sun deck is a popular entertaining area with the large Jacuzzi, full size bar, barbecue grill, al fresco dining and comfortable sun lounging. Inside, the open floor plan in the main salon and dining area provide incredible views from expansive windows. Guests can also enjoy their very own private cinema experience from the comfort of the main salon with the7ft projection screen. 

The MAIN DECK level features a spacious outdoor seating area aft of the salon with further sun pads aft.

The SWIM PLATFORM serves up easy access to the water, for leisurely boarding the 28ft Scout, or launching on/off the two brand new Yamaha VX cruiser wave runners.

There is one place however, where ICE 5 may be noticeably smaller - her shallow 6' draft --- ideal for island hopping!
