Feadship begins construction on 72m speculation yacht Sakura

25 May 2023 • Written by Gabrielle Lazaridis

Dutch yard Feadship has announced a new speculative project, the 71.7-metre Sakura, as the latest in its new generation of superyachts. 

Named after the Japanese cherry blossom, Sakura blends the East and West in a marriage of "Scandinavian warmth" and "Japanese minimalism", the yard said. 

Guests boarding from the swim platform can either ascend the stadium staircase to enter the yacht from the main deck – complete with a seven-metre swimming pool – or, with the touch of a button, the steps open to reveal a dedicated wellness area at the heart of the vessel with dual accessibility through the beach club and main staircase.

Sakura's interior, designed by Italian studio FM Architettura d'Interni, embraces the "Japandi" style with its use of modern furnishings decorated by light, earthy tones. In a series of renders released by the yard, an unconventional layout sees both the formal dining and lounge areas sitting longitudinally along the main deck saloon, raising the capacity for onboard social gatherings.

Accommodations are spread across seven cabins, including two VIP suites and four additional staterooms on the main deck that have been strategically placed to maximise the amount of natural light entering each cabin. A dedicated owner's deck houses the master suite with wrap-around floor-to-ceiling windows supplying panoramic views.

Up top, the sundeck boasts a second pool with large sunpads forward, as well as a spacious aft deck for dining and relaxation underneath a large overhang.

The Netherlands-based builder – which rarely enters construction without a buyer already in place – is offering Sakura to a prospective owner who wishes to significantly reduce the lead time of a new yacht, with this latest 70-metre expected for delivery in the summer of 2025.

According to BOATPro, Feadship has 16 projects in the works across its four construction sites, including the 67-metre Feadship Project 823, which was recently spotted undergoing sea trials, and the 119-metre Feadship 1010, scheduled for delivery later this year.
