aquarius-is-one-of-the-best-feadship-superyachts-of-all-time

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.

Savannah Feadship super yacht

Triumphant at last year’s World Superyacht Awards, Savannah was chosen by a judging panel of 22 superyacht owners as the finest yacht launched in 2015. Featuring naval architecture by De Voogt and CG Design interiors, this 83.5 metre yacht was described as an "almost unanimous" choice.

Savannah's ground-breaking interior features curved walls and corridors, rich woods, intricate stonework and a grand total of 50 sliding doors. One of the most innovative Feadship yachts ever, Savannah sports a seafoam green exterior that reflects her eco-friendly Breathe propulsion. Developed in-house by the Dutch yard in 2010, this hybrid system draws on a 30-tonne lithium-ion battery bank.

Launched by Feadship in 1983, the Jon Bannenberg designed Azteca (now re-named Lionwind) was way ahead of her time in terms of design. She is still remarked upon today as one of the most ground-breaking, trend-setting superyachts of all time and has inspired countless other designers of today. Featuring distinctive windows and an unusual interior layout, she and her sister ship Paraiso were built for Mexican media mogul Emilio Azcarraga. Lionwind was recently sold by Glynn Smith at Denison Yacht Sales, with Vesa Kaukonen at KK Superyachts introducing the buyer.
