Feadship’s new 58m motor yacht Najiba ready for sea trials

Written by Charl van Rooy

Launched last month at Feadship, the new 58-metre motor yacht Najiba is on the move through the Dutch countryside this week as she makes her way to open ocean from the builder’s inland facility of Aalsmeer. Najiba will now undergo a series of intensive sea trials out on the North Sea ahead of her scheduled delivery in mid-March.

Built as project 699, Najiba is the design work of artist Philippe Briand under his Vitruvius yachts brand while Studio Liaigre was selected as the interior designers of the project. A total of six staterooms provide luxury accommodation to Najiba’s 12 guests while 14 crew members are housed in separate quarters forward on the lower deck. Najiba yacht passing by Alphen ann de RijnPhoto: Tom van OossanenNajiba yacht passing by Alphen ann de RijnPhoto: Tom van Oossanen

Designed as a ‘lifestyle’ superyacht, Najiba is all about comfort and space and features a beach-style villa interior to match. Commissioned by experienced owners and guided by MCM as owners’ representatives, the project was fully built in aluminium as opposed to the steel-aluminium combination often seen on motor yachts this size.Najiba yacht passing by Alphen ann de RijnPhoto: Tom van Oossanen

The benefits of this move meant considerable savings in the fuel consumption department, with levels as low as 11 litres per nautical mile while cruising at 12 knots predicted.
