Previously known as 1009, Bliss is described as a “timeless family yacht” and is fitted with a hybrid propulsion package. The yacht is set to be a “world traveller”, according to the yard.

Exterior design comes courtesy of Jan Schaffers of Studio De Voogt while Rémi Tessier has penned the “elegant” interior.

Key features include “state-of-the-art technology and engineering” alongside “advanced security and life-safety systems”, the yard said.

The hybrid propulsion system will enable the yacht to sail in diesel-electric mode. Equipped and certified to cruise the Polar regions, Bliss will has a top speed of 17 knots and a range of 6,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots.

Other features include high ceilings, nine guest cabins, plentiful lounge areas and a large gym and wellness area.

Spacious exterior areas include a large swimming pool and helideck, which converts into a sports and games deck.

Feadship reported the owner had “thoroughly enjoyed” the design and build process that brought the yacht into being.

Project manager Albert Abma said: “Feadship is renowned for offering a unique experience to owners who wish to become personally involved and, in this case, the client embraced every opportunity to play a role.

“He also thoroughly enjoyed meeting the craftspeople and learning about our processes at the yard. Bliss really is a Feadship built with as well as for her owner.”
