Exclusive: 110m Feadship superyacht Project 1007 hits the water
by Chris Jefferies
The largest Feadship superyacht to date has been spotted for the first time today (December 1) at the yard’s Papendrecht sub-contractor Scheepswerf Slob.
Styled inside and out by Michael Leach Design, the 110 metre Project 1007 features in-house naval architecture by De Voogt. The hull and superstructure will now be moved to the yard's Makkum facility for fit-out ahead of a planned 2018 delivery.
Very few details are known about this new superyacht as yet, but these pictures show that the steel hull supports an aluminium superstructure. It is understood that Project 1007 will take the place of the recently launched 96 metre Project Vertigo in the yard’s Makkum shed.
This four-deck displacement yacht is being built to Lloyd’s Registry standards and features a dramatic architectural curve that links the main deck with the upper deck. Hatches in the topsides hint at a side-loading tender garage and a fold-out superyacht beach club, although those features are yet to be confirmed by the yard.
The collaboration with Michael Leach Design is significant as the UK-based studio has previously worked on the iconic 96 metre Blohm + Voss superyacht Palladium and one other Feadship yacht, the 67 metre Anna.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Dutch yard include the 73 metre Project 813 and the 69.5 metre Project 696, both of which are due for delivery in 2017. Looking further forward, the yard is also believed to be developing a 93 metre yacht called Project 814, with a 2018 launch planned.
