Designer insights on just-launched 62m Feadship yacht Sea Owl

2013-06-02By Risa Merl

Feadship Royal Van Lent launched 62m superyacht Sea Owl. Her exterior and interior design is entirely by London-based Andrew Winch Designs, who has been working with the owner since 2005 and also designed the experienced owner’s previous yacht – a 43m Burger also named Sea Owl.

The first Winch-designed Sea Owl featured a green hull, and the new superyacht keeps this signature hull colour. Her exterior is highlighted in classical lines, stainless steel finishes and teak joinery.

According to Winch, the owner commissioned a new yacht tailored to the needs of his growing family, designed with relaxing and spacious accommodations. 'Sea Owl’s magical interior is a treasure trove of beautiful detailing surprises that are sure to entertain all generations,' says Andrew Winch. 'A wealth of toys and games provide fun distractions for the younger guests whilst adults will appreciate the tailored general arrangement and extraordinarily detailed selection of hand carved pieces, sculptures, petrified wood items and marbles. Sea Owl has been a fantastically creative project to work on and one of which our studio is immensely proud.'

Anthony Sands of Edge Yachts has represented the Owner on this project from the early design phase. He confirmed that Sea Owl has been a challenging but highly rewarding project. 'We believe she is quite possibly the most customised 62-metre yacht ever built and is a true work of art in every respect.'
