Feadship unveils 85m concept Slice during the Monaco Yacht Show

28 September 2022 • Written by Katia Damborsky

Dutch yard Feadship has unveiled its latest 85 metre superyacht concept during the Monaco Yacht Show. Named Slice, the design marks the eleventh concept ever presented by the shipyard and builds on extensive research and discussions with owners, designers and architects. 

The initial concept is the work of Studio de Voogt. Key to the yacht's design is a long strip of glazing that runs entirely from bow to stern, allowing for natural light to filter in through multiple decks. Slice “turns the inside out and the outside in,” according to Studio De Voogt lead designer Chris Bottoms and head of design Tanno Weeda.

The Feadship concept gets its name from this "slice" of glass, which reinvents the way that light can be brought inside. According to the shipyard, “a once predictable flow of spaces is abandoned in favour of a fresh approach to the onboard lifestyle.”

One example of this unexpected layout is the a 70-square-metre atrium, which is flanked by cascading circular balconies and is uninterrupted by the staircase. 

Elsewhere, the yacht is home to a 10-metre multi-level pool on the aft deck, which creates a hybrid space that sits somewhere between a beach club and an open-air cabana overlooking the water.

The modern design also harnesses eco-friendly propulsion options, with the engineering team calling her “fuel agnostic”. In a statement, Feadship touched on using both methanol and non-fossil diesel (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil – HVO) for powering two  Azimuthing pods.

The design team has paid particular attention privacy as well, with a full-height segment and a passerelle that hinges open at the touch of a button, allowing guests to disappear into the privacy and security of the interior.

In terms of interiors, Feadship turned to Dutch designer Marco van Ham and requested that teak be avoided throughout. Instead, the interior employs a blend of backlit marbles, onyx, liquid metals, silver leaf, shagreen and straw marquetry.

Details such as undulating lines and a contrast between gloss and matte surfaces work together to contribute to the refined ambience.

Accommodation is offered for up to 20 guests (or 12 for commercial purposes) and a top speed of 16 knots is predicted.

Available for immediate construction, the yacht could be delivered as early 2027. 

Slice is based on the same "sculptural philosophy" as the 82 metre concept Pure,  which was presented at the Monaco Yacht Show last year.
