The 77m/252ft superyacht Feadship Project 818 hit the waters today, and was filmed as she has left the Royal Van Lent facility.
The first glimpse of Feadship Project 818 was live-streamed by the yard over almost two hours, as the megayacht left the construction hall in Kaag.
Feadship hinted they would be broadcasting the launch of Project 818 in an earlier statement, saying, "When Project 818 sees the light of day, however, she’ll open a different kind of new chapter, revolutionising how such events are covered.”
The video shows the superyacht inching out of the construction shed to have her mast put in place, before a tug boat maneuvers her out into open water.
Due to be delivered later this year, the superyacht is now entering the final stages of construction.
Details about Project 818 remain under wraps, so little is known about this secretive superyacht. She is reported to have a beam of 11 metres, and from the video we can see she has a plumb bow that will contribute to exceptional seakeeping. Her exterior styling is believed to be by Jarkko Jamsen.
Feadship has previously described the motor yacht as “elegant and well proportioned”. In a statement, the Dutch yard said; "We’re used to making history at Feadship as each of our pure custom superyachts redefines what can be imagined and created. "
When Project 818 sees the light of day, however, she’ll open a different kind of new chapter, revolutionizing how such events are covered.
It is not yet known whether this superyacht will be available for private charter, but you can view and compare all Feadship yachts for charter.
