Feadship launched its first ever ice-class yacht, the 51m/167ft Feadship 701, at its facilities in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands, earlier today with video footage revealing the moment it first hit the water.
The Dutch shipyard is yet to reveal the name of the new project, but it is known to be hull 701 and De Voogt Naval Architects are confirmed to be behind the naval architecture and styling.
By watching the film clip, you can take in her plumb bow, which is befitting of her ice-class status, and her sharp exterior lines are balanced out by soft curves for a rugged yet luxurious explorer-style look.
The exact classification of her ice-breaking capabilities also remains a secret, but it is expected that she will be able to cruise in some of the world’s remotest oceans, such as Antarctica and the Arctic.

She should also be able to cruise for long periods of time without refuelling. Her range is expected to be 4,500 nautical miles at 10 knots and her fuel capacity measures nearly 24,000 gallons. Her top speed, meanwhile, should be 14.5 knots.
Other confirmed information include the measurements of her draft, which come in at 3.35m/11ft and 10.8m/35ft respectively, and that Bannenberg & Rowell Design have headed up the interior styling.
