Feadship’s 94m (308ft) superyacht VIVA, previously known as Project 817, has left the Dutch builder's yard in Kaag for the first time today.
The custom-built superyacht includes a number of ambitious features to fulfill the needs of the Owner, a very experienced yachtsman who has owned and chartered numerous Feadships over recent years.
An advanced hybrid propulsion system has been installed in keeping with the Owner’s desire to ensure the efficiency and environmental impact of the 94m (308ft) yacht is the same as his previous Feadship, despite that being some 32m (105ft) shorter. The end result will mean VIVA can cruise comfortably at 12 knots on diesel-electric power.
The superyacht's styling is clean and linear, with all exterior doors flush with the design and operating on electric sliding mechanisms, as part of the Owner’s less-is-more philosophy.
A further prominent feature of the latest Feadship build is its floor-to-ceiling windows, which also play a key role in its open beach house-style interior by Peter Marino Architects. The exterior design comes courtesy of Azure Yacht Design and Naval Architecture and Studio De Voogt.
This comes at the start of another busy year for Feadship with eight superyachts set to be delivered in 2021, the largest of which will be the 95m (312ft) Project 1009. She will take her place in Feadship's top ten superyachts by length, a list headed by 110m (361ft) ANNA, when she is handed over to her Owner.
It is not yet known whether VIVA will become available for luxury yacht charters.
