Edmiston challenges top designers to update classic Feadship superyacht style

Edmiston challenges top designers to update classic Feadship superyacht style

Brokerage house Edmiston has brought together a selection of top designers to pen modern interpretations of a classic Feadship gentleman’s yacht, as part of the collaborative project Andromeda.

‘Andromeda has been created in the true spirit of the traditional Feadship motor yacht. Classic in style but with the features and systems of a Feadship for 2016,’ says Arthur Van Berge Henegouwen, founder of the Feadship Heritage Fleet. ‘Our brief has been all about Feadship heritage – the gentleman’s cruising yacht brought up to date.’

Eidsgaard Design, Claydon Reeves and Adam Lay Studio followed this direction to create initial designs aimed at a range of potential clients, who would still be able personalise them. Parameters comprised basic specifications – a 67m steel displacement yacht with a range of 5,000 miles, a top speed of 16 knots and a volume of between 1,500GT and 2,000GT – and lifestyle requests from Rob Shepherd, a broker for Edmiston.

‘I thought carefully about a wish list from what I’ve learnt over the last 10 years, both working on large yachts and as a charter and sales broker,’ says Shepherd. This included a large pool, a beach club, a gym with views, seven cabins with a flexible plan, a helipad, safety features for young and old, and large windows.

Claydon Reeves’ exterior design, ‘Embraces classic styling with the most modern shipbuilding technology,’ says Dimitris Hadjidimos, a partner at the studio. It features a rounded stern, long overhangs, a classic ship-style funnel and full height windows in the upper and main saloons.

Eidsgaard Design aimed at ‘majestic’ styling. ‘Our vision includes high ceilings and a regal appearance disguising state-of-the-art onboard systems,’ says Peder Eidsgaard, creative director of Eidsgaard Design.

Adam Lay Studio stayed true to the look of a traditional Feadship. ‘Fitting these virtues into contemporary yacht technology is a matter of long elegant lines and subtle superstructure curves,’ says Lay. The designer also penned an interior inspired by an English country mansion, with, he says, ‘Walnut panelling, parquet floors, antique furniture and details like a richly veined marble-top bar in the .’

Feadship took on the water-level amenities itself, penning a float-in tender dock that becomes a seawater swimming pool when the boat is out, and a glass ceiling over the beach club.
