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 vesselโ€™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 vesselโ€™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 shipโ€™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.ย
