Feadship has launched the 78.50-metre custom motoryacht Hampshire II for an experienced Feadship owner with a great love of action and sports. From the foredeck ball court to the 25-metre high crow’s mast, this latest scion of the Feadship fleet is a yacht full of adventure. During the launch ceremony on Saturday 14 April at the Feadship Kaag yard, Feadship director Dick van Lent paid tribute to the owner of Hampshire II.
Feadship has launched the 67.27m (220’8”) Drizzle at the Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw yard in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands. She has been created for clients who were inspired by the 2005 Feadship Twizzle, of which they were the second owners and had renamed Drizzle. Although taken by the World Superyacht Award winning vessel, they decided to create their very own Drizzle, entirely custom-built to their specific preferences. The result is an exceptional yacht almost 12 metres longer and proportionally wider, higher and deeper, that still preserves the beauty of the original 55m De Voogt design.
The world debut of the new Sunseeker Predator 115 at the Southampton International Boat Show follows in the success of her award-winning big sister, the Predator 130.

She has the exterior deck space of a Yacht but remains Predator in her look with an exemplary level of onboard luxury and, taking inspiration from the 34 Metre Yacht’s accommodation plan, can comfortably accommodate a party of up to 10 in five cabins, with a crew of five.
