Iceni Yachts has recently launched the first of the Iceni 39 racer series in the United Kingdom. The programme will see these yachts raced in the 2020 season and marketed with a view to create further orders based on the moulds and technologies utilized in the initial build.
End to End British Engineering
The Iceni 39 range of yachts has been designed, built and commissioned in the East of England; bringing together a wealth of local boat building knowledge with modern design and build technologies. With a key focus on fine workmanship and design the aim of Iceni Yachts is to provide quality and pace with an affordable price tag.
Partnered with a UK sailmaker, rigger, composites supplier and other leading boat building professionals Iceni Yachts is investing in British engineering at a time when others are moving overseas.
