Aquarius

The ultra-quiet Feadship superyacht

For the true yachting fanatic, being asked to pick your favourite Feadship yacht is akin to being asked to pick your favourite child. The famed Dutch yard has been delivering yachts since 1949, making it a challenging task to narrow down a list of the best of Feadships afloat today. But it's a task worth tackling if only to point out some of the unusual, creative and groundbreaking design features found on the best Feadship yachts.

Our list starts with the 92 metre Aquarius, which was commissioned by experienced American yacht owner Steve Wynn. Feadship describes him as “a fiercely competitive player in the hospitality business and highly ambitious in terms of his personal possessions”, and these qualities seem to have influenced many of the characteristics of his new boat — not only in the infrastructure of the galleys, pantries and crew service areas, which have been “optimised to the highest degree”, but also in providing dedicated spaces for some of Wynn’s private art collection.

Aquarius is propelled by twin MTU 16V4000 M63L, 2,240kW diesel engines, which give her a maximum speed of 17 knots and a range of 5,500 nautical miles at her stately cruising speed of 12 knots. Feadship has worked hard to ensure that she is as silent as possible — in fact the yard expects her to be the quietest yacht it has built to date. Aquarius accommodates 14 guests in seven staterooms styled by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design, while her crew quarters allow for a total staff of 31.
