Project 3249 showcases the perfection that can be obtained across every aspect of a superyacht when the Feadship designers sit down with clients who know exactly what they enjoy about life at sea with family & friends, and how to make the most of every available centimetre on board.
Sipke Halbertsma, commercial director at Feadship America, and designer Chris Bottoms explore Project 3249, a wholly original design that captures the pure custom spirit of Feadship inside and out.
“A blend of the masculine and graceful”
A blend of the masculine and graceful with enormous windows on the world, Project 3249 comes in at exactly 69.75 metres to ensure access to specific harbours. The yacht has an impressively high volume for this length in order to accommodate six equally sized guest suites as well as an owner’s stateroom. The dark blue hull looks stunning while also having the effect of lowering the profile, a prime example of the holistic approach to aesthetics and function found throughout this delightful boat.
One of the prime locations for fun and relaxation on Project 3249 is the dazzling beach club which has its very own cinema. Hull doors fold down to port and starboard, opening up the area for the widest range of watersport entertainment. Twin stairways spanning the full beam rise up to the infinity swimming pool, adding to the visual attractions of the elongated stern. While we’re looking at the exterior, note how the double hull line creates a flowing sheer line and the required sense of robustness. Fixed bridge wings introduce an element of tradition into this striking profile.
A key part of the interior design is the way the luxury areas are bathed in natural light via expansive windows. With the exception of the imposing central staircase, the layout has an air of informality reflecting its intended use by family and close friends. Offering fantastic rear-facing views, the owners’ stateroom is positioned on the bridge deck aft and has an adjacent wine ‘cellar’ which resembles a work of art. Dispensing with a bridge deck lounge focuses the social gathering on the main deck, making the most of the fabulous facilities there and keeping guests connected rather than stretched around the vessel.
