Charter yacht brands to know: FEADSHIP, the Dutch Masters
As the company’s tagline says: "There are yachts and then there are Feadships." Highly popular in the luxury charter fleet, Feadship superyachts are standouts for their craftsmanship, engineering and purely custom design inside and out. All Feadship vessels are renowned for setting new standards in every facet of construction in what the business calls “the relentless pursuit of perfection”.
Based in the Netherlands and with roots dating back to 1849, Feadship formed when the De Vries and Van Lent yards became part of an association formed in 1949 called Feadship, which stands for First Export Association of Dutch Shipbuilders.
Each and every Feadship is unique, custom crafted in partnership with clients who start their project with a blank page and set out to create a superyacht that serves their needs and suits their personalities.
Fortunately for charter guests, many owners elect to share their prize possessions. In the international charter fleet, there are dozens of Feadships that deserve mention. Here are just a few that Luxury Charter Group can recommend for their palatial design, professional crew and itineraries that will entice, delight and create memories for a lifetime.
43m (141.08ft) Feadship motor yacht GO is a spacious and impeccably designed luxury charter yacht whose compact size ensures ease of access to every mooring in the Mediterranean during summer and Caribbean in winter.
Her cleverly thought-out layout accommodates a total of 10 guests in five staterooms including Master cabin on the main deck. Very versatile, her four guest staterooms on the lower deck can be converted into two full beam VIP suites with their own lounge. GO’S exceptional exterior spaces include the main aft deck, which is an ideal spot for a refreshing breakfast, whilst the spectacular sun deck features a Jacuzzi, lounging space and alfresco dining, and she is fully-equipped with all kinds of watertoys for family-friendly fun.
At 81m (265.7ft) AIR has an exceptionally sleek and elegant exterior with modern lines, a unique matt black steel hull and an aluminium superstructure. Inside, AIR is decorated with original artwork, large windows and open plan spaces, with exquisite finishes such as sycamore, leather, high gloss stainless steel, palladium leaf, back-lit white onyx, off-white and black limestone and carved glass.
AIR can accommodate 12 guests in seven large staterooms including an impressive split level owner's suite, two guest cabins on the upper deck, one on the main deck and three on the lower deck. The owner's observation lounge boasts a breath-taking view over the eight-metre long pool on the vast main deck. The magnificent sun deck offers a well-equipped gym, lounging areas aft and forward with Jacuzzi, and a 102" pop-up television screen for outdoor movie viewing. Other features of the yacht include an elevator to all decks, massage and steam rooms and a large foldable swimming platform with bar and helipad.
The winner of the 2016 World Superyacht Awards, SAVANNAH is an 83.5m (274ft) luxury charter yacht and the world's first hybrid superyacht with a one million watt battery pack as part of an electro-mechanical propulsion system. Painted entirely in silver-green metallic, SAVANNAH boasts a 10-metre pool and innovative inside-outside layout, where all saloons open onto decks, separated by large sliding doors.
There are a large variety of spaces for wellness, physical exercise and entertainment: an underwater lounge (Nemo Room), a bow observation lounge, a double-volume video wall installation, a wellness area, an exercise room, and a library. Accommodation comprises a Master, VIP with fold out balcony, and four large guest suites.
Covering five decks and featuring several exterior spaces and a contemporary classic interior, 70m (229.7ft) JOY is a superb superyacht which truly meets the owner’s brief to “create something totally different to every other yacht”. The first of many distinctive aspects is the radical exterior styling, comprising alluring concave lines and the artistic use of glass. Indoor/outdoor zones known as 'winter gardens' were created to further enhance this feeling of space and optimize the connection to the water.
JOY has vibrant interiors and extremely flexible cabin layout with accommodation for up to 12 in eight cabins. There’s an elevator servicing three of the five decks plus an array of facilities dedicated to wellness: a large gym, spa room and onboard masseuse.
With a highly experienced and talented crew of 17, JOY is the ultimate charter vessel for discerning travelers seeking the pinnacle of personalized service.
A beautiful 53m (162ft) Feadship, PEGASUS is a large, spacious charter yacht that comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests in six staterooms. Along with elegant, Eastern-inspired interiors, PEGASUS features huge outdoor areas where guests can enjoy alfresco dining and relaxation on her massive sun deck.
Leisure amenities include a Jacuzzi, gym, large aft deck, swim platform and watertoys such as a 3-seater Sea-Doo Waverunner, Kawasaki Jet-Ski, kayaks, scuba diving equipment, snorkeling gear, fishing rods and various inflatable tow toys.
