Cookson Adventures x ICON Yachts
Purpose meets adventure
Discover more about our collaboration with master Dutch builder, ICON Yachts. Through this short film, we share our passion for expedition yachting and designing unique yachting adventures centred around purpose-driven travel.
Filmed in early 2023 at the ICON Yachts shipyard in the Netherlands, we take you behind the scenes with an exclusive look at Project MASTER, which is currently in build and set to be one of the world’s most capable explorer yachts.
Nick Davies, Managing Director of Cookson Adventures explains; “Rarely do shipyards and expedition providers come together to shine a light on the process that goes into designing elite yachting adventures. By collaborating from the concept stage and sharing our expertise, we’re then able to design complex and meaningful travel expeditions, which have purpose”.
“We’re excited to provide our input into the design and operation of Project MASTER and we hope to use her as a platform to explore more remote regions of the world in the future. With a state-of-the-art science lab and heli pad, the opportunities to design immersive and impactful conservation-focused experiences anywhere around the world will be endless”.
Micca Ferrero, Owner of ICON Yachts adds, “It is a true honour to join forces with Cookson Adventures within a historic collaboration during the entire lifecycle of Project MASTER. This exceptional exploration yacht is designed with adventure and scientific expedition in mind, equipped with a full suite of solutions to support the missions, while aiming at consistently reducing carbon footprint and environmental impact. ICON Yachts and Cookson Adventures are, therefore, able to deliver a long-term philanthropic project around the vessel, and gather a unique community of like-minded travellers, experts, and scientists across the globe.”
