Building a Yacht with Feadship

So, you have to make a decision where you want to build your new luxury yacht, knowing you are an experienced yacht owner and you want the best of the best and you want it to be exactly to your liking. Also you know what you want so your input is a major fact that the yacht builder has to take into consideration. Then you decide to go to Feadship, one of the Royal Dutch Shipyards.

You want a contraflow swimming pool on the aft deck on your new 44mtr yacht but also, as you mostly cruise with your extended family, you want a shallow swimming pool on the lower main deck floor which also doubles as a Jacuzzi and when you don’t use it you don’t want to see it so you can dance and entertain your guests on the place where that pool is. You might say that is a highly ingenious use of a space.

But also you want large windows in the superstructure decks, as low, high and wide as possible, without sacrificing safety and seaworthiness. (think insurance and Lloyds)
Ahhhh…. and the design needs to be contemporary with classic touches.
And you want them to come wherever you are for the regular meetings, be it London, New York or your private house. And it all has to fit in 44 meters (145 ft.)

Feadship was up for the challenge and thanks to the external designers from Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects and the interior designers from Bannenberg & Rowell Design this was just a few of the challenges they faced and addressed with great success and made this 44 mtr. Feadship the best built 44 mtr. (145 ft) yacht to date resulting in a fabulous world cruiser with high-end finish.
