Feadship aims for the Asian market with its new motor yacht Helix
by Malcolm MacLean
Feadship is taking a brand-new superyacht to Asia for the first time this spring. A dedicated tour by the 45m Helix will take in Hong Kong in March and the Hainan Rendezvous in early April before heading off to the Singapore boat show at the end of the month.
Launched in August 2011, Helix offers a proven platform, with an established hull, superstructure, and exterior styling and her 'Nautical Style' interior has been selected by the shipyard, with traditional dark woods combined with neutral tones providing a warm and distinguished atmosphere.
With excellent volume and spacious living areas inside and out, Helix offers light-filled accommodation for 10 guests all on the main deck plus a convertible office for two on the bridge deck and would be ideally suited to charter operations. The overwhelming feeling of space in the master stateroom is created by numerous floor to ceiling windows and exceptional headroom, which opens up to a skylight 3.2m above.
Lloyds classed, MCA compliant and fitted with zero speed stabilisers, Helix is asking €33.5 million in a joint central agency with Burgess.
