Aicon Yacht Ends Aground in Greek Ithaki Island

A nineteen meter Aicon motor yacht with seven persons onboard ended aground in Agios Nikoloas, in the North East of Ithaki Island at about 12:00 hours of eleven August.  It is not reported if the yacht was cruising in the Marmagas sea, or ended aground while at anchor in near Agios Nikoloas.  A patrol boat was immediately dispatched in the area, first taking the seven passenger aboard the flybridge yacht to safety, and subsequently organizing motor vessel Dimitra for the towing of the yacht to the harbour of Lefkada, for inspection and repairs.  No pollution was reported from the grounding.
The yacht in this grounding is an Aicon 64 Fly designed by Marco Mannino with naval architecture by Sergio Cutolo, it offered an interior of three or four cabins plus a crew cabin, and was powered by twin Man 1360hp engines for top speeds up to 34 knots.  Third model of the short and fast Aicon life which lasted about twelve years, the 64 Fly was produced from 2004 to 2012 selling in over thirty units.  Reopening in 2019 Aicon actually started by evolving the 64 in the new Sergio Cutolo designed 66 Vivere presented in 2022.


  1. All the early Aicon were designed by Fulvio De Simoni and not by Marco Mannino.

  3. Hi Marquez thanks for your comment. Fulvio de Simoni designed the 56, 52, and 54. It has been heard that the following models where started by him, but due to some problems with Aicon, which I do not want to elaborate, he stopped working with them. De Simoni in that time also designed the Abacus 61/62 and 70, Antago new 62, and Rodman Muse models.
