Feadship Project 816 moved into Amsterdam facility for completion
by Miranda Blazeby
While few details have been released about the in-build yacht, it is known that she is due for a 2021 delivery and has a beam of 13.5 metres. Built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the full displacement yacht will have four decks.
It comes as the new Amsterdam based facility is set to be officially opened on Thursday May 16 by Queen Máxima of Holland.
Described as “futuristic” by Feadship, the new facility is spacious enough to allow the mast to be erected onto the superstructure while the yacht is still inside thanks to three overhead cranes.
It will allow Feadship to build and refit wider and larger yachts measuring up to 160 metres.
During her visit on Thursday, Queen Máxima will also be shown a number of classic Feadship yachts and be given a presentation into the history of the yard and sustainable innovations it is now applying to yacht building.
