after looking through thousands of boats i have come across this . its not exactly what i was looking for but seems to be extreemly good value .(maybe too good to be true ). trouble is i cant find any info on this boat , not even a manufacturer website ?. can anyone please give me any information on aicon specially the 52 . i have found the boat on several websites and it appears to be an ex show boat 30 or 110 hours only depending on which broker site you visit ,also it has been kept in dry storage all this time . http://www.ybw-boatsforsale.com/Boats/150419-AICON-AICON+52 thanks david

Well-known member.

So the Aicon 52 is the smallest boat ever built by Aicon. It became the 54 in 2005-6 stern aft deck, cockpit extension. It is a Fulvio De Simoni design, and has sold much less to the 56, delivered in about 100 unit. The 56 was Aicon first model. The boats are very similar but the 56 has the much wanted full beam midships owners cabin. That price is a steal. I know some Aicon owners, and friends of owners and most seem to be happy with the boats. Company was in troubled financial waters in last 2 years, and was in near bankruptcy for the last year. EYB is the Beneteau Group brokerage section so is quite reputable, and in that price you have to add commision of 5%. Altough this broker is in France and boat is in Sicily, and the spec sheet is very much empty. I hope it is not the usual 200k EUROS + leasing fees of another 200k EUROS. So check your homework well.

Be careful with Italian ex leasing boats. I was talking to the UK Ferretti dealer a few weeks ago and he was saying that there are lot of finance repo boats coming onto the market in Italy and the finance cos have very little idea what they are selling and many don't have title documents confirming the chain of ownership. I have tried the old Aicon Group website address and it is down

kcrane said: Just a thought having considered the same issues as you a few years ago. If you've got the cash then the capital cost of having a boat is the amount it depreciates while in your ownership. Right now interests rates are very low, so you can't earn much risk-free, so looking on the bright side, it isn't that much worse having capital tied up in GRP than in a bank. The running costs of one 50ft boat versus another won't be much different unless you are unlucky and need to replace or fix something significant. All that as background to say that buying the Aicon at £300k may not actually work out any cheaper than a Sq58 at £400k. The Sq58 is a well known boat and as Deleted User has said, the older ones have dropped to the price they'll pretty much flatline at. You'll lose something in depreciation, but it won't be criminal. That Aicon on the other hand is an unknown quantity, even in the Med. You could lose out, or at least have a painful time trying to pass it on (as the current owners have already found, it has hung around for 8 years). I'm suggesting that laying out more cash now (if you don't need to borrow it) isn't a bad option cos over say 3 years of ownership it might actually cost you less and you'd have the boat you really want [your forum nom de guerre suggests you really want the Fairline ] Click to expand...

When you actually see the Aicon you will see that it is a much less nice boat than the others. Flybridge is a joke compared with the Sq58. Aicon boats are reasonbly well built and have decent equipment but many models are not designed well. The 56 was a hit but many other models have been failures and sold in small numbers, and have clearly evident bad design features. There's a reason why the 52s are cheap and plentifully available and in this category I'd agree KCrane's advice and get a bargain Sq58 that has flat-lined at £380k or so (and try to get a 2004 or later model due to the big improvements that year)

Deleted User said: Agreed. I was going to write words to the effect that you don't see many, even in the Med but quite by chance, we're berthed in a marina near Trogir in Croatia tonight and we're moored close to an Aicon 52. Yup, it looks like its been hit with the ugly stick a few times but that's just my opinion. Certainly the flybridge is small. Reminds me of a Birchwood for some reason. An early Sq58 would be a much better buy IMHO and it won't lose much money either as it's becoming a sort of classic Fairline Click to expand...

Actually the only reason the 52 never sold well was because it was only 50k EUROS cheaper to a 56. The Aicon 52 was the least succesful model from the builder. The revamped 54 did much well to it... Comparing a Squadron 58 to an Aicon 52 is like Apples and Oranges. The Aicon 52 competes with an Azimut 50, Fairline 50 Phantom, Princess 50 Mk.1 or 2 etc. Apart this model Aicon was pretty succesful. The 64 sold over 50 units, The 72 Open over 10 units, the flagship 85 same, and the 56 over 100. So Aicon sold pretty well in the good years.... A used Aicon 52 will have a market in central med; France, Italy, Croatia, Greece. The 56 thanks to its full beam owners cabin at the time has market every where. Infact IMO the problem with the 52 is that it will always be in its shadow....

Sounds like a good deal but beware as there are quite a few reposession Aicons on the market being sold through Croatian and Italian banks which I understand are limited on paperwork. I have not had any first hand experience with Aicon but have discussed them with colleagues in the trade and personally I would choose to avoid unless I was very confident in the general reputation of the marque, but as with anything it comes down to personal preference and as the saying goes 'you pay your money and you take your choice'. I have had some potential clients use these boats as a negotiation tool against well known and trusted brands such as Azimut and Sunseeker to try and justify the low offers! It's only my opinion but this isn't the best way of trying to justify an offer on brands with heritage and a proven track record. I would agree with the other comments in the thread about the squadron 58, it's a great boat and has a great reputation with stable residuals. Regardless of any of the above, make sure that whatever you buy has the correct title paperwork and that the tax status is as advertised and is legitimate as this is crucial with any boat purchase. If you use a good broker they should be able to give you confidence and there are Proffesional association websites that can help with guidance. Best of luck whatever you do and I hope you have an enjoyable season aboard your new vessel.

Hi David All sounds good and should be OK but I would still have the paperwork checked properly to make sure all is in order, maybe even look at using a good marine lawyer to make sure of it, could be the best few quid you spend!!! I hope you don't mind me saying as I am not trying to put you off, but paperwork is one of the biggest problems for brokers when selling a used boat. If you want to have a chat about it I am happy to give some advice. Basics are: builders certificate in name of dealer, bill of sale from dealer to first owner ( should be you in this case), invoice showing tax paid (if applicable), CE certification, RCD compliance, transcript of registry if boat registered to make sure no outstanding debts or mortgages, confirmation that the boat is free of encumbrances! Proof of service history ( even though boat is effectively new, it should still have been maintained properly as it was built a few years ago). Good luck with whatever you do.  

Squadron an interesting thread please keep posting and tell which way you end up going but best of luck whichever  

squadron said: hi william , i am not trying to compare it to a sq58, even as a newbie i already know there is a vast gulf in percevied quaility between the two marques . it just got me thinking if i could really buy a 53ft 2004 boat with only 28 hours on it ,in as new condition for 150k then i could learn the ropes with it without feeling too worried about every scrape and bang on the gel coat . come resale time... in a couple of years i could probably sell or px it for reasonable money ..ie..very cheap compared to other things . the aicon 56s that i can see which are more comparable in size to the sq58 are roughly the same price as a sq58, so i dont know if the aicon brand is really seen as a budget brand in some parts of the world . thanks david Click to expand...

Help, Aicon 64

We have an Aicon 64 but we only received the users manual. We have problems with the electrical and PLC system. Does anyone have wiring schematics for the Aicon 64. Even if it is a different year it may help. Thanks

Perhaps a good marine electrician would be appropriate? I'm not trying to be a smart guy but those are pretty large, expensive and relatively young boats. Since you have one wouldn't it be wise to work with a professional who can diagnose and rectify your issues?

Aicon Yachts Looks to Hydrogen-Based Power

  • By Yachting Staff
  • August 2, 2022

Aicon Yachts

Aicon Yachts and Renewable Innovations have teamed up to bring hydrogen power options to boating. The goal is to eliminate the use of diesel generators at anchor and to reduce dockside electrical-grid requirements.

“Hydrogen-powered systems offer the greenest and cleanest solutions on the market and are ideal for a wide range of commercial and consumer applications,” Robert Mount, CEO and co-founder of Renewable Innovations, stated in a press release. “Our vision is to extend these solutions across every facet of life, including helping to make yachting cleaner and preserving the beauty of nature.”

The goal, according Aicon Yachts Chairman and CEO Marc-Udo Brioch, is 100-percent sustainable yachting. The builder is going to incorporate the hydrogen systems in two steps: first, to power HVAC, at-anchor power, galley appliances, lights, audiovisual systems, electronics and security systems; and second, to power a yacht’s movement by coupling hydrogen power with the ocean’s salinity.

“Yachting is all about enjoying nature at its finest and bringing the Aicon family closer to the world’s oceans, with all their majestic powers,” he said in the press release. “All this has to be achieved with the goal of experiencing them while leaving them untouched.”

How do hydrogen fuel cell systems work? They have no moving parts. Instead, they use an electrochemical reaction to create energy. They generate no carbon emissions, minimal noise and no vibrations.

Take the next step: go to aiconyachts.com or renewable-innovations.com

Scientists have a theory for why orcas keep ramming yachts

  • Orcas just want to have fun.
  • Orcas have been ramming boats off Spain, Portugal, and Morocco since 2020.
  • A group of scientists now argues it's because the orcas are bored and feeling playful. 

Insider Today

Orcas have been causing mayhem off the coasts of Spain, Portugal, and Morocco for the past several years, causing problems for local sailors by ramming and bumping their boats .

But a group of scientists now believes these orcas don't have malicious intent — but rather are just being silly .

The group, consisting of over a dozen scientists and orca experts who've been studying the region's orcas for years, explained its findings in a report from the International Whaling Commission published Friday.

The Portuguese and Spanish governments commissioned the report in response to a spate of incidents in which a small group of orcas around the Iberian Peninsula had rammed into — and sometimes sank — at least 673 boats since 2020.

Despite the damage the orcas have done, the scientists argue that the orcas are not trying to be aggressive or destructive but are just like bored teenagers looking for a bit of fun.

"The sea is a very boring place for an animal," Renaud de Stephanis, the president of Conservation, Information, and Research on Cetaceans , a marine-life preservation organization, told USA Today . "Imagine if you're a dog or some other mammal, you can interact with objects around you. But in the sea there's not much for the orcas to interact with, so they play with the rudders."

Related stories

The report suggested young juvenile orcas, who tend to be more curious and exploratory, started the trend, which then spread through the population.

And orcas, like humans, love following trends.

The highly intelligent and social mammals are known to experience "fads" within their pods . For example, past orca populations have even gone around wearing dead salmon as hats , for no other apparent reason than everyone else was doing it.

This long series of boat-ramming incidents could be no different.

"The orcas don't know that the interactions with the boats causes problems to humans," Alex Zerbini, the chair of the International Whaling Commission's scientific committee , who worked on the report, told Business Insider. "For them this is like a game."

"The key message is that there is not evidence that this behavior is aggressive or that the whales are 'attacking' the boats," Zerbini added. "This appears to be a fad, which plays a role in the orcas cultural development."

But why now? The scientists say it's likely because the tuna population, which is the Iberian killer whales' primary food source, has dramatically increased in recent years, giving the orcas more time away from hunting.

And with all that free time, the apex predators have chosen to have a little fun. But don't worry: Even if an orca does ram and sink your ship, you're probably not in danger . No one has been injured in any of the incidents so far.

  1. Aicon 64 round 2

    After 5 pages of gossip chat I was the first that I wrote some real problems of Aicon boats but these problems aren't irreparable. I am still waiting about REAL EXPERIENCE comments. Please no more gossip. Also do you know how much expensive are still the Aicon boats? Aicon 64 at yachtworld are starting from 480k with vat paid!!!!!

  2. aicon 52 help?

    So the Aicon 52 is the smallest boat ever built by Aicon. It became the 54 in 2005-6 stern aft deck, cockpit extension. It is a Fulvio De Simoni design, and has sold much less to the 56, delivered in about 100 unit. The 56 was Aicon first model. The boats are very similar but the 56 has the much wanted full beam midships owners cabin.

  3. AICON 64..?
