The footage shows the 87m/285ft luxury yacht LONIAN navigating the narrow Dutch canals as she heads out to the North Sea.
The latest addition to Feadship’s fleet, LONIAN left the Aalsmeer shipyard to complete sea trials last month.
A video released by the shipyard shows the journey she made, navigating the canals and bridges as she headed towards Rotterdam.
In a journey which took two days, the motor yacht came up against 15 bridges and attracted throngs of onlookers eager to see the sleek superyacht up close.
The video also highglights the challenges that Feadship faces when transporting their yachts via the waterways. Several of the bridges don’t offer a wide enough space for megayachts to comfortably fit through, and the crew on board LONIAN are slow and meticulous when moving her through the tight gaps.
Previously known as Project 700, custom-built motor yacht LONIAN offers a wealth of amenities across four expansive decks. Committed to comfort, she is fitted with a Jacuzzi, helipad and private tender garage to store her state-of-the-art accessories. She plays host to a large swimming pool on the aft deck which looks out over a swim platform.

Boasting exterior design by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design, she has a striking profile complete with a midnight blue hull. Although no pictures of her interior have been released yet, the team at Richard Hallberg Interior Design will have furnished her to a superb standard throughout.
LONIAN is the fourth luxury yacht to emerge from Feadship’s esteemed shipyards this year and you can watch a timelapse of her being built over the course of three years. She follows the launch of 110m/361ft motor yacht ANNA, the largest superyacht ever built by Feadship, who hit the water in April.
