With Symphony (Hull 808) Feadship launched their biggest yacht (and biggest yacht built in the Netherlands as well) to this date at the Royal Van Lent facility in Kaag after the delivery of the 99m “Madame GU”

Symphony was designed by well-known Tim Heywood who also designed the latest launch by Lürssen in Germany: The 104m Quantum Blue.

Symphony is now waiting for completion the engine room and sea trials. She got now her observation lounge and mast with radio communication equipment on top of the sun deck. There is also a bar and a jacuzzi.

The six-deck yacht was designed as a charter yacht to the Passenger Yacht Code (PYC) regulations for yachts from 13 to 36 guests including fully helicopter operations on the own helipad.

The bridge deck features a large terrace with outdoor cinema. The owner’s deck has a full beam stateroom (Symphony has a beam of 14.10m!) with 

  • double bathroom
  • dressing room
  • sauna
  • private office
  • forward terrace with jacuzzi
  • study
  • lounge
  • spacious aft deck with lounge and dining area for up to 20 guests.

More special features: On the main deck is a counterflow swimming pool with waterfall located. The lower deck is equipped with an ultra-high definition cinema, a lounge area below the glass-bottom swimming pool, a beach club with wellness centre.

Feadship equipped Symphony with an interesting audio-visual system. One example: the elevator shaft has an interactive video wall throughout the five decks. The glass corridor through the engine room features an all-purpose interactive screen offering images from the underwater camera plus the latest information on the yacht’s location, propulsion and systems. Although she seems to have a great IT aboard I read nothing about environmentally friendly technology.
