Feadship Superyacht Arrow Captured on Maiden Voyage
by Miranda Blazeby
The yacht was spotted arriving in Gibraltar yesterday morning. It comes after the yacht undertook sea trials in March.
Launched in December, Arrow is “a trailblazer for a new and ground-breaking line of super-luxurious boats”, said Feadship director Henk de Vries. He added that the 75 metre yacht, previously known as Project 703, is “quite possibly the best we have ever completed”.
The multi-deck yacht features a steel hull and 12.9 metre beam, with naval architecture by Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects. Exterior and interior design meanwhile have been penned by Jonny Horsfield and his team at H2 Yacht Design, marking a first Feadship collaboration for the studio.
Described as “elaborately detailed”, the interiors features backlit marble and varnished teak. The exterior meanwhile will feature low glass railings, high deck heights and expansive gangways.
Other amenities on board include a bespoke mosaic-lined jacuzzi located on the sundeck, as well as a beach club aft complete with a unique bar area.
Speaking at the christening ceremony held in January, the owner said: "Although I have a ten-foot dingy as a child, this is actually my first real boat. I have, however, seen many other people’s superyachts in my life and I have to say that Arrow is the most beautiful and amazingly executed of them all.”
Arrow will join five other yachts expected to be delivered by Feadship throughout the coming year, ranging in size from 49 to 99 metres. The largest yacht currently under construction is the 99.5 metre Moonrise, which was recently spotted on the move after launching in March.
Feadship director Henk de Vries said: “Arrow is the perfect way for Feadship to launch into a new decade with a cutting-edge design that is very much the face of this period of the 21st century".
