One of the largest yachts ever built in the Netherlands is gearing up for sea trials as the 99.5-metre Feadship superyacht Moonrise is being transported today from the builder’s facility in Makkum towards the North Sea. Launched one month ago, Moonrise's navigation, safety and emergency systems will be put to the test over the coming weeks as Feadship prepares the vessel for delivery to her owner.Photo: Tom van Oossanen
The yacht’s design by Studio De Voogt is characterised by a familiar plumb bow and clean deck lines running from bow to stern, dressed in a light grey hull finish and crisp white superstructure. Inside, the yacht's impressive beam of 15.5 metres gives way to an airy interior by Rémi Tessier Design where Moonrise can accommodate up to 16 guests across eight splendid staterooms. In addition, up to 32 crew can live on board in high-end crew quarters.Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van OossanenClose attention has been paid to creating a noise-free environment on board, reporting that Moonrise 'eclipses even Feadship’s legendary standards of noise and vibration'. This was achieved through custom-designed propellers and underwater appendages. These not only reduce noise, but also greatly adds to Moonrise's efficiency as a long-range cruising superyacht. Moonrise can reach up to 19.5 knots at top speed and is designed to cruise comfortably at 16 knots.Photo: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van OossanenPhoto: Tom van Oossanen
