The Feadship Sports Yacht offers a fresh take on how an exceptionally swift Feadship might look like. This design exploration includes a full-sized glass-bottomed pool, open wheelhouse and mega-sleek exterior. A state-of-the-art propulsion system that deploys water jets rather than propellers add to the fast flavour.
Feadship director Henk de Vries and head of design Tanno Weeda discuss the development process behind a potential Feadship Sports Yacht.
The lines of this seriously elegant all-aluminium Sports Yacht exude speed and length. The initial design was extended by three metres to add to the cool feel on a powerful shallow-draught yacht developed to achieve speeds of around 30 knots. But an ultra-efficient electric equivalent would still be able to race along at 20-plus knots… Food for thought?
The light shining through the glass bottom of the large swimming pool onto the owner’s stateroom below will create a spectacular and constantly evolving ambience.
Visual impact was also the purpose behind the proposed open connection between the bridge deck wheelhouse and main deck saloon. It’s a visionary idea that deserves to see the light of day.
