On Saturday 23 January 2016, Feadship launched its first project of 2016, 66.25m motoryacht Vanish – formerly hull number 809. Hundreds of guests made their way to Kaag Island, where Vanish was built, for the launch ceremony to enjoy a live band and a tour of Feadship’s new creation.
Feadship teamed up with Eidsgaard Design for both the interior and exterior design of the project, the result of which is modern and powerful styling, designed to achieve the most functional and aesthetically pleasing solutions. Some of the highlights on this custom creation include a free-standing staircase, an extendable balcony for the owner’s stateroom and a full-height atrium.
"This launch party encapsulates the energy with which the owners have embarked on fashioning their Feadship,” explained Feadship director Jan-Bart Verkuyl. “They are excited about enjoying all the options involved in being close to the water, from the exquisite transom sea terrace to the inviting sun deck bar. Vanish has been designed to suit the way they like to spend time on board with a wide array of watersports options. With helipads on both the sun deck aft and bow area, she serves as a springboard to a world of adventures for the owners and their guests.”
According to Feadship, the owners of Vanish were extremely involved in the project and regularly visited Vanish throughout her construction on Kaag Island.
January has been a strong month for the new build market so far, with seven deliveries in total and a cumulative LOA of 406.3m. The average LOA of 58m is also higher in comparison to January last year (55m), a figure that was significantly inflated itself by the lunch of 83.5m Savannah, also built by Feadship.
Including Vanish, Feadship have five projects scheduled to deliver this year with a combined LOA of 236.75m.
