First unveiled earlier this week, the 55-metre Feadship Project 708 has arrived at the yard’s outfitting facility in Aalsmeer today. The yacht’s design is by Vitruvius Yachts’ Philipe Briand (exterior) and Danielle Boutsen of Boutsen Design (interior) and was commissioned by an experienced and adventurous owner.Photo: Tom van Oossanen
Designed to be self-sufficient and fuel-efficient, Project 708 is planned to traverse the famous Northwest and Northeast Passages. Built to ice-class standards, a forward-facing sonar system can study the ocean floor and a 20-tonne gyroscopic stabiliser system, the largest of its kind, will keep the boat steady in all ocean conditions.

The open aft deck is reserved for Project 708’s 6.3-tonne submarine, a custom limousine tender and a car, all of which can be lifted off the deck using a 7,000 kg man-rated crane.Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van Oossanen
The yacht’s luxury outfitting will take place over the next 12 months when the vessel is expected to be completed by the end of 2021. Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times
