About Orion

The 1984 launched Orion, was the second Feadship for the same owner; the first being Passage II, delivered in 1973. The 37.95m (124'6") Orion encapsulated all the developments that occurred at Feadship in the intervening eleven years in terms of electronics and equipment. In an unusual move for this time, the main galley was placed below decks, as practice had shown that a pantry bar on the main deck was easily sufficient.
