Istros rebuild close to completion

The first images of the rebuild of the Feadship Istros have just been released and they give a glimpse into what the owners can look forward to when this elegant 42-metre motoryacht is relaunched this summer.

In a fine example of circular thinking, the original hull was restored by the Feadship Makkum yard and married to an all-new aluminium superstructure. Istros also includes a fabulous family-oriented interior which blends contemporary and classic elements in a sunny Scandinavian style.

All four Feadship yards have continued their work in recent weeks while taking great care to follow all safety measures in relation to coronavirus. The progress made on Istros illustrates this in practice as the rebuild team in Makkum has put the finishing touches to a yacht that will feature the latest technology. Highlights include an eco-friendly micro turbine (more on which here) and other equipment designed to ensure that the rich heritage of this Feadship from 1954 is future-proofed for generations to come.
