The sun shined brightly last Saturday as we launched the 57-metre Feadship Halo. The owner’s party, the Feadship workforce and the many boats looking on from the surrounding Kaag lake all had a great view as the superbly designed superyacht slipped gracefully into the water.
The owner expressed delight at the success of a project that was completed in just 33 months with a very warm speech: “Feadship has the most amazing craftsmanship and the most amazing attention to detail I have ever seen in anything I have done.”
Feadship director Dick van Lent reflected on his delight at receiving the order after the owner had visited many different yards and made the decision to build at Feadship following a charter onboard Helix. “I will never forget how pleased I was to receive your letter after you had enjoyed the Feadship experience so much,” he said. “Having felt the perfect craftsmanship, fine detailing and unrivalled comfort at sea that a Feadship offers, you challenged us to build a custom superyacht of your own. And the result is fantastic.”

The short timeframe required an extensive amount of 3D modelling and enormous organisational experience. Halo’s aggressive exterior styling was created by Eidsgaard Design in close cooperation with the owner. As you can see, dark window bands in a warm grey Awlgrip Mocca unite the side deck windows, intersected by huge silver metallic arches.
Designed for world cruising, Halo has a large sun deck, an enclosed mooring deck, a heli platform and two tender garages flanking the centreline beach club. A large selection of diving equipment will allow the owner to enjoy a beloved hobby.
The refreshingly modern interior design by Bernardi Peschard features light oak, dark woods and bronze inlays. All the main guest suites and the owner’s stateroom are on the main deck and there is a VIP stateroom on the bridge deck. The wheelhouse is highly specified with seven widescreens and a designer interior that reflects the large amount of time the owner anticipates spending in this area.
