ANNA Yacht Project 1007 Feadship

ANNA by Feadship and Michael Leach

Feadship launched the 110m ANNA (aka Project 1007) - a design by Michael Leach

The 110m motor yacht has a beam of 18.50m and a draft of 4.25m. The hull was constructed in steel while the superstructure is made of aluminum. Michael Leach designed her elegant exterior and created also the interior in cooperation with Brian J. McCarthy. Engineering was an in-house job by De Voogt Naval Architects. I love this oval/ellipse-styled design element on the sides.

ANNA has a diesel-electric propulsion with

  • 2 x Caterpillar 3516C HD 2350 kW
  • 2 x Caterpillar 3512C HD 1790 kW
  • 2 x Caterpillar C32 SCAC 684 kW

This configuration allows a top speed of 18.5 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots. At cruising speed, the operating range amounts 5,200 nautical miles.

Alongside the owners’ stateroom, guests can be accommodated in six guest cabins and two VIP cabins. The yacht crew of 34 can be extended with six staff.

Sherpa Yacht Feadship

SHERPA by Feadship

SHERPA - also known as YN 815 has been launched.

SHERPA features an exterior and interior styling by RWD, the naval architecture was an in-house job by Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects. The vessel has a length of 73.60 meters.

The owner wanted a vessel with a lot of storage for equipment, large tenders and land vehicles for adventures around the world. Two cranes, one with a reach of twelve meters, the other one reaches twenty meters. Furthermore, a helicopter platform is there as well.

Sherpa Yacht Feadship

Her explorer-like exterior profile is accentuated by an unfaired hull which leaves the plate work and welding exposed. This sturdy finish was requested by the owner who wished to generate an industrial look.

The yacht features an owners’ suite on the main deck, two VIP suites, and four guest cabins. Furthermore, there is an observatory on the bridge deck. Aft under the helicopter platform is a lounge, dining area, and a bar.

The hatches of the big tender garage open differently. One starboard hatch opens up, the port side hatch folds down. Tender storage is also on the main deck. On the port side is a very big crane for a tender about 10m, the space on the starboard side is a bit smaller. Between this storage is a glassed corridor to connect the aft area with the forward area.

I visited the yacht during the Superyacht Press Tour 2018 but no pictures are allowed (superyacht business as usual). The interior is dominated by dark wood. The bridge has a nice lounge aft with very big windows. Also, the crew area seems to be spacious in comparison with many other yachts.

FEMKE Yacht Feadship Project 697

Feadship Project 697 FEMKE

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 Project 697

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.”.

Feadship Hull 696 SAMAYA

SAMAYA (69m) by Feadship

The 69m Feadship yacht with the project number 696 has been officially launched as M/Y SAMAYA.

Feadship describes the yacht as “The ultimate diving buddy” because the owner has a focus on diving adventures. SAMAYA features a tidy diving room for the equipment, a heating system that the yacht can be heated up 30° and a pool of hot water that divers can recover fast from their trips in the depths.

Currently not in pictures: The interior design by RWD (Redman Whitely Dixon).

“After joining us at the 2014 Monaco show, the client came straight to the Netherlands with Joshua Lee from Lee Marine to see our facilities on the Sunday after the event and discuss a high-speed motor yacht with a large open sun deck,” remembers Feadship director Bas Nederpelt. “They then spent Monday and Tuesday with the in-house design and naval architect team at Feadship De Voogt translating the client’s fascinating ideas into the initial design. After several design iterations, a Letter of Intent was signed on the Tuesday evening.

Samaya Yacht Feadship

Feadship De Voogt designer Jan Schaffers explains:

“The owner shared stories about diving adventures as we studied shapes together to discover what it is that makes these underwater creatures so fascinating. Our conclusions were included in the design. A good example is the gentle yet powerful muscular shape of the side bulwarks, which echo the pronounced slender muscles seen on a bull shark.”

The yacht is equipped with two custom-designed tenders in the sizes of 8.8m and 7.2m with the same color as the mothership. The boats are stored forward on the main deck.

“This is the clearest possible example of how Feadship can embark on a project guided solely by the inspiration of a client and our unrivaled experience. Confident of the stellar reputation of the Feadship yards, owners can rest assured that everything will go smoothly from that point on. We also have the flexibility to continue engaging with their ideas as a design develops: Samaya, for instance, grew by some five meters over the early months. This is the only way to ensure a truly bespoke motor yacht.”

The yacht was designed to be autarky to sail in regions with no or limited infrastructure. During the keel laying ceremony, the owner promised that the yacht serves also as a platform for scientists and media to produce educational material of rare species.

Hasna Yacht Feadship

Feadship unveils HASNA

Feadship unveils the 73m HASNA - an RWD design

HASNA was built for an Australian client to use it for family cruising. The yacht has a deep swimming pool with a length of eight meters at the aft area of the main deck that has a transparent end. The guest suites and the cabins for the younger family members are located behind the engine room. That allows a direct access to the beach club. The beach club has large balconies on both sides, an area to relax and a gym.

Feadship director Jan-Bart Verkuyl comments:

“The story of this Feadship very much revolves around the journey of the client and his family. He was the first owner ever to give a speech at the start of the build to the entire workforce, sharing his life story and why this Feadship would be so important to him and his family. They were very involved in the build and the owner also flew his friends halfway around the world to share the fun of the construction process with them on several occasions.”

“The brief was to create a timeless exterior profile with lots of subtle details, many of which are inspired by an automotive aesthetic,” explains Charlie Baker, project manager at RWD. “Hasna’s profile has an understated elegance interrupted by standout features such as the giant swimming pool on the aft main deck with its infinity waterfall and curved glass sections. Profile elements of note include the sculptural mast structure, the subtle scoops that run around the main superstructure, and the large floating stainless steel cap rail. The latter was an incredible challenge to build, one which Feadship executed exceedingly well.”

A happy crew is a good crew: HASNA’s crew cabins are larger than on usual yachts and has an additional crew lounge.

“The owner has been visiting boat shows for twenty-plus years leading up to this moment,” concludes Hasna’s captain Steve Barker. “Having owned and chartered other yachts, he ultimately chose Feadship for his first large build based on a conviction that quality and value for money are paramount. He was not disappointed: the craftsmanship and attention to detail is outstanding and a testament to the men and women involved. The owner sees Feadship as the pinnacle of custom yachtbuilding – and my experiences here during the build have confirmed that.”

Feadship describes HASNA‘s sun deck as follows: Hope there will be pictures soon:

“An excellent example is the sun deck, which has an interior section amidships with sliding doors forward and aft. A bar runs from inside the saloon to the exterior aft deck and is divided by the sliding door, the gap for which is cleverly concealed by a sliding champagne bucket. With the doors open and everything ready, guests have 25 meters of deck available, complete with the kind of barbecue & grill set up for which the Aussies are renowned and a three meter Jacuzzi surrounded by sun pads. This all makes for a relaxing chill out deck during the day, a buzzing party zone at night, and anything in-between that the guests might desire.”

CID Yacht Feadship

CID by Feadship

Feadship launched CID – another unit of their 35m-class.

CID comes up with the same exterior style (designed by Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects) like Letani, Kamino, Moon Sand Too and Avatar.

CID was built for an owner who likes to explore smaller marinas and bays with friends. The seems not to be the classic yacht owner. The launch party included a first maiden tour in the Dutch canals and he intends to take part of the sea trials. Furthermore, he wants also to steer the yacht by himself.

CID Yacht Feadship

The interior was designed by Bannenberg & Rowell with interior styling by Marty Lowe, client’s long-time interior designer. Because there are no interior pictures of the publishing date of this blog post, here how Feadship describes the interior:

“The interior is geared to practical use rather than gilded edges, all within a sophisticated jacket. There are wooden floors throughout the main deck (using the same design that the client saw during a visit to Feadship TV), a giant television and a big screen projector in the main lounge so that guests watch can two sports events simultaneously.

While taking these bespoke use-based factors into action, Bannenberg & Rowell Design has successfully designed a crisp and simple architectural interior palette of oak, walnut and wenge, taking advantage of the 2.45m headroom in the main saloon and associated expansive glazing. Marty Lowe, the client’s long-time interior designer, oversaw the selection
of soft furnishings, loose furniture, and decorative objects, all of which have been combined to produce a calm, pale West Coast vibe.”

The first journey will go to the Fjords and the Mediterranean. The winter’s station will be the west coast of Mexico and the rest of the summer on the Baja California Peninsula.

Letani Feadship Motor Yacht

Letani by Feadship

Feadship presents the 35m eye-catching Letani. It is the fourth launch of this design.

Letani was developed to cruise in shallow waters and exploring smaller marinas in the typical Dutch quality. The in-house designers of De Voogt Naval Architects created the exterior and made the calculation. The interior (currently no pictures) was designed by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design and Christian Liaigre

Feadship wrote that

“the dining area has an informal French bistro ambiance, with a tapered table and long banquette.”

The two MTU diesel engines give her a top speed of 20 knots. At 12 knots she has a range of 3,200 nautical miles with a fuel capacity of 25,400 l.

The owner of Letani is one of the youngest Feadship owners to date and commented during the launch ceremony:

“I’ve been privileged to be on various different superyachts over the last ten years. Every time I see a Feadship come by I had two feelings: one, ‘that’s a very special yacht’ and two, ‘I want to get off my boat and step on the Feadship’. It is very exciting that I now get to board my very own Feadship for the first time. The only bad news about this launch is that we’ll miss our visits to the shipyard… We’ve felt part of the family from the keel laying ceremony onwards and building a Feadship has been a wonderful experience.”

Joy by Feadship

Feadship launched JOY (70 m)

Feadship announced the launch of the 70m motor yacht JOY

JOY is the first exterior design by UK-based design studio Bannenberg & Rowell (since the death of the great Jon Bannenberg in 2002). The interior was designed by Studio Indigo.

Dickie Bannenberg commented:

“It has been a great pleasure to work with an owner who was keen to bring something new to the superyacht world in the same way as my father did from the early 80s onwards with Feadship and others 

While our design studio has an excellent reputation for interiors, including twelve for Feadship owners, Joy is the first visible exterior design of a new era for us. The flow between the interior and exterior spaces and her generous wide walkways are without precedent on a motor yacht of this size and the vast exterior spaces have been used to great effect. Moreover, the wealth of concave shapes in the superstructure and judicious use of surface texturing have given Joy a design language and identity all her own.”

Feadship 34m Motor Yacht

Feadship launches 34m Motor Yacht

"Small" but mighty - a very untypically sized Feadship of 34m for many years.

The in-house design team De Voogt Naval Architects gave her an exterior with an amount of glass. Also a modern and stylish vertical bow design and a big covered area on the sun deck.

The 34m is a great Idea for people who want to benefit from Feadship’s experience and Quality but don’t want to own a bigger yacht. There are also two other 34m yachts in the queue. All designed as commercial yachts (LY3).

The owner has his stateroom on the main deck. On the lower deck are suites for eight guests. There are double and twin cabins available. The twin cabins can be converted into a VIP cabin. The interior was styled by Bannenberg & Rowell.

Feadship 34m Motor Yacht

“Three years ago, the owner of a pure custom Feadship asked us to build a smaller yacht to Feadship standards. It needed to have a length and draught that would allow access to new markets where mooring facilities are restricted and facilitate cruising in shallower depths. We don’t like saying no to clients at Feadship so we decided to explore whether it was even practical to design and construct a 34-meter cruiser to Feadship quality within the boundaries of this compact size.”

Feadship 34m Motor Yacht

“Our research established that, while building such a custom yacht was indeed possible, it would only be economically viable for the client if we built three of them to the same design template. Turning normal market dynamics on their head, we, therefore, agreed to our client’s proposal as long as he could introduce two more clients who would like to order one of these unique Feadships while, of course, having flexibility in terms of the interior.”

Motor Yacht Halo by Feadship

Halo by Feadship

The in August 2015 launched 57m custom built motor yacht “Halo” designed by Eidsgaard Design in cooperation with Feadship‘s in-house design team De Voogt Naval Architects and the owner of “Halo”. Interior design was created by Bernardi + Peschard.

Halo needed a short building time of 33 months and passed the sea trials well. Highlights are a fully integrated Apple TV platform and a very large sundeck with an innovative carbon fiber sun awning construction. It can be electrically retractable.

The interior by Bernardi + Peschard is the first superyacht project for the design studio from Mexico. Currently no interior pictures. Feadship describes the interior:


[quote]”It features light oak, dark woods and lots of bronze inlays in a surprisingly modern style.”[/quote]


The owner’s suite is located on the main deck together with the main guest cabins. Thanks to large windows the cabins offering a panoramic view. One VIP suite is located on the bridge deck with the same characteristics like the owner’s suite (same degree and finish).

Halo features a helipad and an enclosed mooring deck forward. The tender storage for two 8m tenders is at the aft area on port and starboard. The beach club opens by folding down the transom. The diving area offers 28 bottles to spend much time under the water.

The yacht is designed for world cruising thanks to a range of 5,000 nautical miles and a cruising speed of 16 knots. Halo offers a crew accommodation of six double crew cabins plus captains cabin for a total crew space for 14 people. They are located on the lower deck.

Guests can spend her time on the large sundeck that features a custom jacuzzi. It can be covered by an innovative carbon fiber sun awning built into the canopy that slides out electrically.

Feadship director Dick van Lent told the owner during the launch ceremony:

“We were delighted to respond to your request after you enjoyed the Feadship experience during a charter trip onboard Helix.

After you had felt for yourself the perfect craftsmanship, fine detailing and unrivaled comfort at sea that a Feadship offers, you challenged us to build an extraordinary custom superyacht of your own. This short timeframe required an extensive amount of 3D modeling during the engineering design process and leveraged on the enormous organizational experience of the craftsmen at Feadship. Thanks to the close cooperation with the exterior and interior designers, Halo is a remarkable achievement in every respect.”

Peder Eidsgaard explains the design:


[quote]“From a quarter front view, the signature silver arches appear to run up, over and down the aft end of the yacht. As Halo drives past, however, observers will notice that the aft tip of the arch is actually turning upwards. This creates a subtle playful tail, which is an important part of the yacht’s character.”[/quote]


For some parts of the exterior Feadship uses the first-time deployment of “a warm gray Awlgrip Mocca livery”.

The yacht has two MTU 12V4000M63 1500 kW @ 1800 rpm. That duo delivers a cruising speed of 16 knots with an operating range of 5000 nautical miles for the world cruiser.

Wishing the owner a lot of fun with this very cool design.

Moon Sand Feadship Yacht

Moon Sand - a new 44m Feadship Motor Yacht

Moon Sand - the 44m Feadship in-house (de Voogt Naval Architects) designed yacht with interior design by Bannenberg & Rowell was launched at the Feadship facility in Makkum.

Moon Sand was designed for a highly experienced yacht owner. The design brief has three key elements:

“namely light, space and freedom of choice in terms of recreation”

For me, the special feature on Moon Sand is the reverse flow swimming pool on the main deck. The tender is stored on the sun deck. That saves space for an own garage. The pool features a lifting floor system. The pool can be used as a safe place for kids when the floor lifted up or can be used for swimmers including the reverse system with down lowered floor. We talking of a compactly sized superyacht ;).

Feadship Sales Director Bas Nederpelt comments:

“Over the past months, we have completed an exceptional number of Feadships, ranging in size from 44 to over 100 meters. We have also had the pleasure to work with some marvelous exterior designers, such as Ed Dubois, Tim Heywood, and Andrew Winch. Moon Sand is a testimony to the design excellence we at Feadship can offer clients ourselves.

Take the way the modern superstructure element rises above the classic Feadship bow – and how this element connects with the whole design via the strong and continuous profile line – and you can see why Moon Sand is a superior fusion of contemporary and traditional styles. Her sleek look reflects the fact that her senior designer Tanno Weeda and his team at Feadship have worked tirelessly to create a unified design. And they have certainly succeeded.”

Moon Sand‘s owner’s area has large stateroom, study, two bathrooms and two walk-in dressing rooms. Three suits reserved for six guests. Two of the suits can be transformed into a single stateroom with a separate seating area. A full beam VIP suite is located forward.
