To mark the opening of the 2009 Monaco Yacht Show, Feadship has unveiled its latest Future Concept Feadship, which offers a dramatic new vision on how the next generation of owners will perceive and experience life onboard a luxury motoryacht. The Aeon concept blends an exceptionally eco-friendly attitude with Feadship design flair and construction excellence. Its spectacular glass tower and green energy system reflects a desire to be at one with the environment in every respect.
This is the fourth year in succession that Feadship has used the opening of the boat show season to reveal the fruit of a year’s brainstorming on the future of superyachts. The goal for 2009 was to get inside the mindset of an archetypal Feadship owner in 2020, taking into account new research among clients, the very latest trends from other industries, and the environmental considerations that concern us all. Aeon is the spectacular outcome.
“The vast majority of current Feadship owners have an eco-aware attitude and this seems set to deepen in the years ahead,” explains Feadship’s marketing manager Francis Vermeer. “Taking this as a primary source of inspiration, the designers from De Voogt Naval Architects and creatives from the De Vries and Van Lent yards spent countless hours exploring every possible angle. The name Aeon reflects the fact that the choices we make today will have long-lasting consequences both for ourselves and our planet.”
