This where the Icon went to? Looks pretty, but a crowded market anywhere in the world, I'd have thought.

Honestly, why didn't you just bring the NS14 over here, build the class and build them?... This is just another version of an NS14 or MiG14 as was a few years back which also had an Assy (but single trap) and to my knowledge didn't do very well? I guess this is going to the USA? Good luck with it.

.....why didn't you just bring the NS14 over here

But of course we did and if it had been 'right' that would have been that.... It would never have caught on here frankly for many reasons not least it could not carry the crew weight.  If you and your crew are light enough for the NS well fine .... but we have the N12 etc here for that sort of thing.   Not many of us are frankly of 'racing snake' weight.... (or planning to be) NS rigs are very modest and rotational as well , so arguably not ideal for many UK locations or tastes.    But the NS hulls were rather good hence the superficial similarities ... but these hulls are rather different being both longer /wider and with more underwater volume. 

We have no plans to sell the 3 sail boat ourselves in the UK for commercial reasons but the boat is going through final on-water testing here simply because it was developed here.  It would obviously have been seen around in the next couple of months so we decided to release a few images before you lot out there did.  

One point in relation to the NS/MG.    The new hull can carry either a standard 2-sail (Icon or Icon type) rig OR the 3-sail rig depending on how the hull is populated with fittings.

"Icon Mk3" - looks nice, very clean lines and good to see the red trimming off the sails ;-) 

Good luck stateside with it!

Didn't the budget extend to a carbon boom, or is it in an aluminium wrap?
Everything I say is my opinion, honest
