The 71 metre Juice has departed the Feadship shipyard and is now undertaking her maiden voyage to the Mediterranean following delivery to her owner.
The news comes shortly after the newest addition to the Feadship fleet, formerly known as Project 820, was put through her paces during rigorous sea trials in the North Sea in February. Juice features exteriors design by British studio RWD with "soft lines" and "distinctive creases" for an "elegant yet masculine" appearance.
The 1499 GT motor yacht was launched in January 2021 and is built with a steel hull, aluminium superstructure and a composite top deck that keeps the yacht’s centre of gravity as low as possible for enhanced seakeeping. Interiors come from Peter Marino, who worked with the Dutch yard recently on the interiors of 94 metre Viva.
Juice was commissioned by a repeat Feadship client who happens to be a keen collector of modern art. The vessel's nameplate is inspired by the work of American artist Ed Rusha and the name itself, Juice, is a nod to the expression "juice on top", which is used by auctioneers and has a similar meaning to "icing on the cake."
Highlights include an eight-metre pool on the main deck, a walk-around superstructure, sundeck gym and a cinema on the lower deck. Unusually for a yacht of her size, Juice has an owner's deck positioned between the bridge deck and the main deck, with four guest suites positioned on the main deck.
Beneath the foredeck, there is storage for three custom tenders, comprised of a 10-metre limousine, eight-metre guest RIB and a rescue boat, which are launched via gullwing doors in the hull. All structural parts of her exterior have been finished in polished stainless steel.
Other yachts currently in build at the Dutch shipyard include the 118 metre Project 1010, which was glimpsed in October 2020 with delivery due in 2022, as well as Feadship Project 822, which was spotted on transport in September 2021.
