71m Feadship project 820 receives composite sundeck structure

Written by Charl van Rooy

Approaching its 2021 delivery date, the 70.9-metre Feadship project 820 that is currently under construction in Amsterdam received its single-piece carbon composite sundeck structure that will be placed on top of the vessel’s aluminium superstructure. The structure was built and delivered by Vabo Composites in the Netherlands. Feadship Van Lent 820 yacht hull launchPhoto: Arie BoerFeadship project 820 superstructurePhoto: Vabo Composites

Despite measuring 23 x 11 x 5 metres, the lightweight section was built at a 40% weight reduction compared to an aluminium alternative, keeping the vessel’s centre of gravity as low as possible for enhanced seakeeping capabilities.

The structure not only serves as the sundeck portion of the yacht, but will also carry the ship’s mast that houses the onboard communication and navigation systems.Feadship project 820 superstructurePhoto: Vabo CompositesProject 820's custom tenders are stowed beneath the yacht's flush foredeck and launched via two gullwing hull openings. The upper decks are glass-heavy in its design and will incorporate several large flat and curved glazed panels to create a real connection to the outdoors and deliver unrestricted views from up here.Β
