One of the world’s most celebrated superyachts came home to the Netherlands in 2017 for her five-year Lloyd’s certification and various upgrade activities. The 78-metre Venus was the world’s first mastless motoryacht, with her antennae and domes hidden within an architectural statement. She also featured an unprecedented amount of glass for the time with huge windows extending the length of all main deck staterooms and an all-glass pavilion deck that offers unprecedented vistas at sea.
The owners always keep Venus in perfect condition, hence sending her to Feadship to have various superstructure work carried out, a meticulous repaint of the top sides of the hull and the application of antifouling. The teak decks were returned to as-good-as-new state while the hull doors had a comprehensive overhaul. Various interior works ensured Venus continues to look celestial for those lucky enough to come aboard while all of us can enjoy the immaculate newly polished stainless steel on the exterior.
