Last week I visited the Feadship shipyard in Makkum, the Netherlands, as part of the Holland Yachting Group Press Tour 2014.
Unfortunately, some of Feadship's current projects are being kept under wraps, such as the 70 metre pictured above. We have, however, been allowed to unveil more information on several of the projects currently underway at the three shipyards that make up Feadship, together with Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects.
The first project is Hull 686, a twin screw motor yacht with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. She measures an impressive 83.50 metres, with a 12.50 metre beam and 3.95 metre draught. Her interior design is by Cristina Benardeau.
Hull 686 will accommodate 12 guests over four large staterooms, one VIP stateroom and the luxurious Owner’s suite. The crew of up to 26 will be accommodated over eight cabins, as well as personal cabins for the captain, engineer and two officers. Among other amenities and water toys, this vessel will come with two 9.0 metre tenders and one 15’ tender.
The second project underway at Feadship in Aalsmeer is Hull 687. This 60.35 metre motor yacht is also built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, and will have a fuel capacity of 120,000 litres. Her interior is the work of renowned Dutch design company, Sinot Yacht Design.
She will accommodate ten guests over four guest staterooms, as well as the generous Owner’s stateroom. Her twelve crew will be accommodated over six crew cabins. Storage rooms, laundry, the galley and the crew mess will all be located on the lower deck. Hull 687 comes complete with a 7 metre tender and wave runners.
The 46.40 metre motor yacht Hull 689 is the next project underway at Feadship, with naval architecture by Dubois Naval Architects and interior design by Redman Whitely Dixon. She is powered by 2x Caterpillar C32 / 895 kW engines. This vessel will accommodate 8 guests in total over two double staterooms and two twin staterooms.
The fourth vessel is the smallest project underway at Feadship, Hull 690, a 44.20 metre twin screw motor yacht with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. Naval architecture is by Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects, with interior design by Bannenberg & Rowell Design. She accommodates 8 guests, in three large staterooms, two of which are easily convertible into one large stateroom with separate seating, and one large full beam VIP stateroom forward. The generous Owner’s suite comes with a luxurious study, double bathroom and walk in dressing room.
The crew quarters are comfortable and spacious, with a private en-suite room for the captain, and two double en-suite crew cabins. Hull 690 comes equipped with a swimming pool with lifting floor, among other exciting features.
Hull 808 is the largest project currently underway at the shipyard, a breath taking 101.50 metre project, with 14.10 metre beam and 4.10 draught. She has a fuel capacity of 220,000 litres and is powered by 4x MTU 16V4000M73, 2560 kW engines. The impressive vessel boasts naval architecture by Feadship, with exterior styling by Tim Heywood and interior designs by François Zuretti and Peter Marino.
The 14 guests she easily sleeps will be accommodated over 6 guest staterooms and one VIP stateroom, together with a double Owner’s cabin. Accommodation is also provided for the captain, 4 officers, 22 crew members and two staff members to ensure that guests have the most comfortable and opulent experience on board. She comes with one master tender, one guest tender, one crew tender and 2 jet skis.
The sixth project being undertaken is a 66.25 metre twin screw motor yacht, Hull 809. She accommodates twelve guests over 6 luxurious cabins, including four guest suites and a VIP large stateroom which can also be converted into two guest suites on the main deck. The Owner’s suite comes complete with his & hers bathroom facilities, as well as facilities that provide the ultimate exclusivity. This consists of a full Owner’s deck covering the full beam of the yacht and an extendable balcony and lounge area that can be closed off with sliding doors to create a separate room.
Hull 809 boasts naval architecture by Feadship, and an interior design by Eidsgaard Design. Her many amenities include a sauna, gym and massage room as well as a 26’ tender, an impressive 28’ tender and 2 wave runners. She can accommodate 17 crew in total.
The 57.45 metre motor yacht Hull 810 has, again, been engineered by Feadship, with exterior styling created by Eidsgaard Design in conjunction with Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects. She is powered by 2x MTU 12V4000M63 1500 kW engines, and has a fuel capacity of 116,000 litres. She will accommodate 14 crew in total, and comes equipped with one 8.00 metre tender and one 9.00 metre tender.
Last but not least, the final project currently underway at the Feadship shipyards is Hull 1005. This superyacht is an imposing 92.10 metres, with a beam of 14.30 metres and draught of 3.85 metres. The naval architect is, once more, by Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects, and her interior design has been undertaken by Seymour Diamond in cooperation with the Owner.
Fourteen guests will be easily accommodated on board, including four children in two children’s staterooms, the lavish Owner’s suite and eight guests over four guest staterooms. A total of 22 crew can be accommodated on board. The impressive superyacht will include two ten metre tenders as well as wave runners among other water toys.
Feadship has an additional number of other projects in the order book on which we cannot publish any information.
