Madame Gu named Superyacht of the Year

Events

The monumental 99-metre Feadship Madame GU won the award for best ‘Displacement Motor Yacht of 2,000GT and above’, at the prestigious World Superyachts Award gala evening in Amsterdam. She was also presented with the most coveted prize of all: ‘Superyacht of the Year 2014’.

With an interior and exterior designed by Andrew Winch, Madame GU is the largest yacht built in the Netherlands to date. Despite her length of 99 metres, she can reach 25 knots thanks to her quadruple 3,600kW MTU engines. Among the many features that earned her the Superyacht of the Year award were a fully enclosed helicopter hangar (first pioneered on the Feadship Ecstasea), fibreglass domes for the satcom/navigation gear, and an exceptionally elaborate interior.

It was a privilege to work with such a groundbreaking owner on Madame GU and to enjoy a delightful cooperation with Andrew Winch,” comments Feadship director Henk de Vries. “The client pushed us to our limits by demanding the most complicated interior ever on the largest Feadship ever. Onboard Madame GU we created things that resemble the Palace of Versailles, except the technology we applied and the finesse and craftsmanship were unavailable at the time that chateau was created.
