About Obsidian

The 84.20-metre Obsidian is one of the most technically advanced and dynamically designed Feadships of recent years.

According to the design team, the brief called for every yacht design norm to be questioned and challenged, both in terms of architecture and engineering, to create a next generation project. Her length is optically stretched by a low profile, horizontal styling features, and very clean shapes flowing aft from a strong bow showcasing strength and seaworthiness.

For the first time in years, Feadship has launched a yacht with a single level engine room, affording considerably more room for creativity with accommodation, in a layout as bold and modern as the exterior profile suggests. Both the exterior design and interior architecture and design are by the British firm RWD in collaboration with MONK design.

Striving for innovation and first-class engineering, Obsidian is the perfect next step on Feadship’s path toward building zero-emission superyachts by 2030. It is the first of the new generation of large yachts furthering carbon reduction through hulls optimised at cruising speed instead of top speed, weight control, advancements in electric propulsion, and the ability to run her generators on HVO, a second-generation biodiesel, a so-called net zero CO2 fuel. Using Feadship’s Advanced Electrical Drive (FAED) program for diesel-electric hybrid power, Obsidian has 4.5 times more electrical storage capacity than Feadship’s first hybrid yacht, Savannah.
