Scheduled for a potential delivery in just three years, the 72.6-metre Project 2024 has been designed as a customisable superyacht by Feadship, Nauta Design and Feadship De Voogt. Described by Feadship sales director Maarten Janssen as “a yacht that enables people to bypass the early technical stage of a new build,” the vessel incorporates the expertise of all three brands to create a new, modern vessel that offers her owner several customisation options before she hits the water for the 2024 cruising season. We take a look inside at the superyacht’s top features…
A timeless profile
Penned by Nauta Design, the exterior of Project 2024 has been designed in a timeless style which the yard believes will “bring joy to all who step aboard for decades to come.” The 72.6-metre superyacht features a sleek, low profile and harmonious lines completed by sharp angles. Understated bulwarks and expansive glass windows help further connect interior spaces with the outside world and improve views out to sea.
The spectacular beach club
The aft area of Project 2024, featuring the patented “The Island” concept by Nauta Design, has been designed as a dual-level wellness centre with a wealth of amenities for owners to enjoy close to the water. According to the yard, the fold-out balconies offer “an 80% increase in platform surface area,” meaning more space for facilities such as 3-metre pool, a lounge area for enjoying the sun or shade and a steam shower and sauna located below in the lower deck interior, which also features storage space for the tender and water toys.
Al fresco living
Guest spaces abound on board Project 2024. Alongside the beach club, Feadship has specified that the yacht "will have many high-class facilities to share with family and friends among the 564 square metres of luxury spaces.” Guests and owners can soak up the sunshine while cruising in warm climes in a range of areas designed for entertaining on each deck, such as the skylounge, which features al fresco dining spaces, lounges and a drinks bar. Even while indoors, the main saloon offers a seamless connection with the outside world thanks to optional fold-out balconies and uninterrupted 270-degree views.
A private owners’ deck
The full-beam master suite, located on the main deck, is described by Feadship as “an oasis of personal privacy and pleasure.” The area features a generous cabin with his and hers walk-in wardrobes and bathrooms, a secluded lounge with a library and a private balcony. A sequestered outdoor area on the bow of the upper deck is accessed via a stairway in the lounge, without owners having to pass through the rest of the yacht, and is equipped with a private pool, sunpads and an additional lounge area – making it a perfect spot for a quiet breakfast or after-dinner drink.
A customisable layout
Building on a ready-made platform allows owners to cut down wait times between buying and delivery – but that doesn’t mean that Project 2024 superyachts will be in any way generic. Each hull can be customised with “countless options available,” according to the yard, from installing an optional helipad to adjusting the propulsion package of the Tier-3 compliant 1500 kW main engines to suit personal preferences for speed and fuel consumption. Designed to accommodate a maximum of 12 guests, the entire interior style can also be adapted entirely to the owner’s desires, making this customisable model anything but standard.
