ROCK.IT was designed by Sinot Yacht Design for an experienced owner who chartered several Feadships. ROCK.IT is equipped with an intuitive control and maneuvering system which is developed for naval ships that include a semi-DP autopilot system. This will allow ROCK.IT to keep her heading at anchor, hovering on the main engine and the thrusters. Optimal use of the various maneuvering modes is made by means of a three-axis steering joystick with a rotational factor.
ROCK.IT‘s captain comments:
“I was willing to accept this new system because it comes from a proven military background. I’m also glad we did this with Feadship as it requires a high degree of confidence in the hardware and the people. This maneuvering system represents a real step towards the future. To make it happen at this point in time, took real vision and considerable skill.”
Henk de Vries (CEO of Feadship) comments:
“Each Feadship is unique and no two Feadship owners are the same, it is our privilege at Feadship to create the most amazing yachts on the oceans for the most fascinating people on the planet, and it has been an amazing and sometimes rollercoaster ride to partner with the owner of ROCK.IT. During his many visits to the yard, we had terrific fun with this unconventional and no-compromise client. His between-your-eyes honesty and tremendous respect for and appreciation of Feadship craftsmanship pushed us to new heights. This is the epitome of the Feadship experience, which encompasses the entire design and construction process. ROCK.IT is a true 21st-century Feadship: stunning aesthetic design nestled in a super- stable ocean-going package that will truly rock the waves.”
The owner of ROCK.IT had the vision of a striking, innovative and sporty looking yacht. The designers of Sinot Yacht Design and the naval architects of Feadship turned the vision into the plans.
Sander Sinot describes:
“ROCK.IT is very sleek and bold without being pretentious. A natural flow of lines and surfaces makes the yacht breathe speed and exude elegance.”.
The awesomeness continues inside, where dark precious woods and light stones are blended in a fantastically detailed classic modern interior. Splendidly spacious thanks to the full-beam throughout, crotched mahogany and striking diagonally veneered sycamore paneling create a very personal touch. Backlit pure White Onyx in combination with the most exquisite Portoro and other marbles elevate the interior to a higher level without losing its main purpose of being a true family yacht. But ROCK.IT is also a party boat when the time is right.
One of the most striking features is the skylight in the sun deck canopy, which dims automatically depending on the strength of the sunlight. This allows for an open feel while optimizing comfort levels.
