The 47m Project 697 represents a very classic dressed Feadship motor yacht and was christened FEMKE

Exterior design and naval architecture of Project 697 was done by Feadship’s in-house designer De Voogt. Although she appears as a classic yacht, she got some modern touches like big windows.

Feadship describes FEMKE’s interior as follows:

“The interior echoes the exterior in its delicate nautical theme overlaid with contemporary details and state-of-the-art technology. It consists entirely of high-gloss dark European walnut panels, light oak parquet, white wooden ceilings and judiciously placed white paneling. The galley, which adjoins the owners’ stateroom and is designed with a clever central nook where the owners and their guests can spend time, is exceptionally spacious and well-appointed, featuring the same high-gloss lacquered walnut finishing with exclusive stainless steel countertops – an outstanding example of a bespoke solution that reflects how time at sea will be enjoyed.”

The owner’s suite is located forward on the main deck with a large bathroom. The guests’ quarter is on the lower deck with four cabins. There are two double and two twin cabins. The captain’s cabin including en-suite bathroom and office is on the bridge deck.

At the aft is a beach club located and designed like

“watersport shop with hanging rods for wetsuits and lifejackets, baskets for small private belongings, and racks for toys.”.

“Pure custom creation Another example of pure custom creation is the door of the tender garage, positioned aft to port. This location would have required the bulwark above to be reinforced in order to contain the hinge, but this had to be an entirely flush surface. In response, Feadship’s engineers suspended the door on two beams, which slide out 70 cm before swinging open.”.
