Feadship has spent this past weekend celebrating the unveiling of their first yacht to be launched in 2016. The owning family and a large crowd of guests and shipyard personnel attended the ceremony at Kaag Island during which the yacht was presented for the first time at a rock ‘n’ roll themed event. The project was announced sold in July 2015 by brokers Kevin Merrigan and Wes Sandford of Northrop & Johnson.
Designed by Eidsgaard Design, Vanish is yet another project where the Dutch shipyard has collaborated with the London-based design studio following projects such as Tango and the recently delivered Halo. Eidsgaard introduced distinctive design cues into a recognisable Feadship profile with plenty of on deck features and interior-firsts. “Vanish is a showcase example of a holistic superyacht, and it is wonderful that everyone involved can experience the fruits of their collective labour in this way,” commented Feadship Director Jan-Bart Verkuyl.
Inside, a dual level atrium connects the main deck to the upper bridge deck lobbies. Four guest suites, a large VIP stateroom on main deck (convertible into two separate staterooms) and a full beam master suite forward on main deck make up the accommodation arrangements for Vanish’s 12 guests. The yacht will host a company of seventeen guests. Wide and spacious aft facing decks make this the perfect yacht for fun family gatherings. Two helicopter landing pads are available; a main platform on sun deck aft, with another on the foredeck. All exterior decks are elegantly finished off with solid teak capping rails.
At water level Vanish offers a multi purpose beach club complete with sauna, spa, massage room and hairdressing salon. This area also houses the yacht’s two 26’ and 28’ tenders and two Waverunners, protected by a watertight door that measures nearly 15 metres, one of the largest ever installed by Feadship.
Driven by 2 x MTU 16V 4000 M63L engines, Vanish is expected to reach a range of 5,200nm at 12 knots and has a calculated top speed of 17.5 knots.
