110m Feadship superyacht Project 1007 approaches sea trials
The largest Feadship superyacht to date, Project 1007, is approaching sea trials. The superyacht, which is now understood to be known as Anna, was previously launched at the yard's Makkum facility in June. Once delivered she will join Jubilee as the joint largest yacht ever built in the Netherlands.
Project 1007 was reported to have been moved through the centre of Amsterdam during the weekend to Damen's capital based facility. It is understood she is set to have final steering and propulsion gear fitted ahead of scheduled sea trials in the North Sea.
Styled inside by Michael Leach Design in collaboration with the owner's personal New York decorator Brian McCarthy Inc., the 110 metre Project 1007 features in-house naval architecture by De Voogt. Project 1007 was first spotted outside its shed at Feadship's Papendrecht sub-contractor Scheepswerf Slob in December 2016 after which the hull and superstructure were moved to Makkum for fit-out ahead of a planned 2018 delivery.
Very few details are known about this new superyacht but initial pictures showed that the steel hull supports an aluminium superstructure. These latest images also reveal a striking exterior which makes good use of glass and offers vast outdoor deck spaces.
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 recent notable projects from the Dutch yard include the 73 metre Hasna, which was delivered in 2017 and was a winner at the World Superyacht Awards 2018, and the 69.5 metre Samaya, also delivered in 2017. Looking further forward, the yard is also believed to be developing a 93 metre yacht called Project 814, with a 2019 delivery planned.
