The 69.5-metre Firebird has officially left Feadship's facilities in Makkum, the Netherlands. Having undergone a comprehensive refit last winter, she returned to the shipyard in September for final servicing tasks.
Work included a 2.5-metre extension (she was previously 67 metres) and a series of interior changes, including a new wheelhouse, the installation of a gym on the upper deck and a "totally new", split-level owner's cabin. The helicopter pad has also been converted into a "lounge deck", the shipyard said.
Delivered in 2007, Firebird was designed inside and out by Michael Leach Design while Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects completed the naval architecture. Sold to her current owners in 2021, she is the predecessor to Feadship's largest yacht to date – the 110-metre Anna.
Accommodation is for 12 guests and 19 crew. Onboard features include a sundeck hammam and Jacuzzi, an open-air cinema and a dedicated dining room with a private balcony.
Firebird is currently available for charter with Y.CO.
According to BOATPro, Feadship currently has 15 yachts under construction. This includes the 79.9-metre Project 714, recently sighted making the winding journey to Aalsmeer by tow.Read More/Feadship's 80m Project 714 spotted in transit through Dutch canals
