Feadship fans have today been treated to an early glimpse of a superb new Feadship that is due to be officially launched in a few weeks’ time. The name of the 72.85-metre Project 705 will only be revealed at that ceremony but we can already see that the Feadship fleet is going to gain another outstanding example of pure custom design, craftsmanship and engineering.
The new Project 705 was commissioned by a repeat client. As she slowly appeared from the construction hall at the yard in Aalsmeer, onlooker’s eyes were instantly drawn to the beautiful combination of a dark blue hull, white superstructure and a continuous band of glass which is flush to the exterior. Striking glass railings with a teak cap rail offered another visual treat, along with a wealth of stainless steel and high gloss eucalyptus details.
Watching proudly as Project 705 emerged into the light, project manager Gerhard Dekker praised the spirit of cooperation between the owner’s team, the designers from RWD, Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects and the yard in Aalsmeer. “It may be a cliché but I truly believe that it takes a team to build a dream, and the way in which everyone has played their part in creating this exceptional vessel is a textbook example of teamwork.”
There are many innovative features onboard Project 705 which will be detailed at a later date.
