Conducting sea trials out on the North Sea this week is the new 99.5-metre Feadship Moonrise. One of the Dutch builder’s largest projects to date, she is being put to the test off the Dutch coast ahead of the project’s handover to her owner later this season.

The yacht’s design by Studio De Voogt is characterised by a familiar plumb bow and clean deck lines running from bow to stern, dressed in a light grey hull finish and crisp white superstructure. Inside, the yacht's impressive beam of 15.5 metres gives way to an airy interior by Rémi Tessier Design where Moonrise can accommodate up to 16 guests across eight splendid staterooms. In addition, up to 32 crew can live on board in high-end crew quarters.Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times
Close attention has been paid to creating a noise-free environment on board, reporting that Moonrise 'eclipses even Feadship’s legendary standards of noise and vibration'. This was achieved through custom-designed propellers and underwater appendages. These not only reduce noise, but also greatly adds to Moonrise's efficiency as a long-range cruising superyacht. Moonrise can reach up to 19.5 knots at top speed and is designed to cruise comfortably at 16 knots.Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times
