Completed by Feadship in Aalsmeer in 2010, the steel and aluminium built superyacht GO was re-launched in June of this year after undergoing an extensive refit which also saw her lengthened from 39 metres to 43 metres.
She returned to Feadship’s facilities for her refit after being taken over by a new owner who had clear view of what GO needed to really make her his own: larger outside decks and awnings that would maximise comfort even further when spending time outside..
Feadship Yacht Services' team undertook the engineering for the project, whilst Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design undertook her restyling. Her original interior design was undertaken by Fokkema & Partners.
The result is striking, especially when on the sun deck which feels dramatically more spacious. The total project consisted of the extension of the main deck, bridge deck and sun deck, all of which now feature semi-fixed awnings that create an ideal amount of shaded coverage. The main deck is now equipped with extra seating aft, whilst the main deck lounge, dining and owner’s stateroom have been restyled.
In addition, the bridge deck features new loose furniture and an extended superstructure to create wind shields, and the bridge deck lounge has been completely refurbished. Lastly, an extra crew cabin was added on lower deck and she has been completely repainted.
GO's instantly recognisable Feadship exterior profile was designed by De Voogt Naval Architects.
Inside, she features a light and airy yet sophisticated interior style which draws on a variety of colors, textures and fabrics. The main saloon utilises warm creams and a palette of browns, yellows and oranges, which gives an overall welcoming, homely feel. Two plush sofas positioned opposite each other with a coffee table in the middle completes the cosy setting, with large windows surrounding the space and flooding the area with natural light.
The adjoining dining area features a round, elegant large table, seating ten guests comfortably for a sophisticated dining experience. Immediately drawing the eye is a unique light feature hanging centrally over the table, whilst several refined art pieces are found on the surrounding walls.
A total of ten guests can be accommodated on board, with the large master stateroom epitomising the calm and peaceful atmosphere that pervades every area of the yacht. Oversized windows provide a great view outside from the bed, whilst the full beam layout of the room prevents guests and crew walking past, thus providing plenty of privacy for the owner.
Flexibility is a major hallmark of GO’s smart layout, with the option to transform two of the four guest suites into full-width VIP staterooms complete with its own lounge. The yacht’s one duct marine air-conditioning plant which services all accommodation spaces is a feature normally found on much larger yachts, and further reduces noise on board.
Outside, the notably spacious sun deck has been ideally set up for entertainment, relaxation and socialising, with a Jacuzzi surrounded by comfortable seating areas as well as sunloungers offering a spot to take in uninterrupted views.
In addition to her newly extended outdoor areas for guests to fully take advantage of, GO also comes with an impressive array of tenders and water toys, including an MOB tender and 6.4 metre Castoldi tender.
Amongst her extensive list of water toys is a Seadoo jet ski; two Seabob waterscooters; water skis; two wakeboards; two inflatable kayaks; snorkelling equipment and fishing rods. Furthermore, GO also presents guests with the opportunity to immerse themselves into the world of diving, with a PADI Superyacht Dive Centre and four full dive set ups available for use.
GO is a full displacement world cruiser with a steel hull, aluminium superstructure and a top speed of 14 knots. Her engine room, built a degree of perfection that only Feadship engineers can achieve, is equipped with twin 12V2000 M70 MTU diesel engines. They provide a 4,000 nm range at 10 knots.
GO is currently available for charter through Feadship, with prices starting at €180,000 per week.
