Feadship Launches largest superyacht ever

Dutch superyacht builder Feadship has launched its largest Feadship ever, a 99-metre masterpiece of craftmanship and engineering. The bespoke superyacht was created in partnership with the talented design team of Andrew Winch and the owners who prefer to remain anonymous at this time.

Built in the Feadship yard in Makkum, project 'Dream' took four years to make its way to the sea and can now claim the title of the largest superyacht ever built in the Netherland.

The Feadship superyacht is elegantly designed and can attain a speed well over 24 knots thanks to her highly efficient hull form and quadruple engines driving controllable pitch propellers swift and efficiently. As one would expect from a superyacht of this size, owners requested to include a helipad for easy departure and arrivals. To protect their beloved helicopter, Feadship designed an enclosed certified helicopter storage system that was inspired by the 86-metre Ecstasea, another Feadship built in 2004.

“Feadship enters 2013 on a crest of a wave as we continue to set new standards in partnership with discerning owners,” concludes Francis Vermeer. “With a solid order book and superyachts under construction ranging from 44 metres to 101.50 metres, there will be many more surprises as the year unfolds.”
