Feadship superyacht Hasna launched for Australian owner
by Chris Jefferies
Styled inside and out by British studio RWD, this fully custom steel and aluminium displacement yacht boasts an 11.9 metre beam. The atmosphere on board is described as “beach chic” — a feeling that is reinforced by the eight metre superyacht swimming pool on the aft deck.
Jan-Bart Verkuyl, director at Feadship, said: “The story of this Feadship very much revolves around the journey of the client and his family. He was the first owner ever to give a speech at the start of the build to the entire workforce, sharing his life story and why this Feadship would be so important to him and his family.”
The layout of Hasna deviates from the standard motor yacht template, with lower deck guest accommodation set aft of the engine room, providing direct access to the superyacht beach club.
The beach club itself is also atypical in that it opens on both sides, but not at the stern. This area includes a dedicated relaxation space and a superyacht gym.
Other key features include a main-deck cinema room, a butler’s cabin and a 25 metre-long superyacht sundeck, complete with central skylounge, which can be sealed off and air-conditioned or opened up to the elements as required.
Accommodation is for 12 guests split across six cabins, while the large crew area allows for a staff of up to 21 people. Charlie Baker, project manager at RWD, added: “The brief was to create a timeless exterior profile with lots of subtle details, many of which are inspired by an automotive aesthetic.”
The studio also designed Hasna's custom tenders, which were built in Australia by Vikal. The limousine tender was styled to match the mothership, with stitched upholstery and subtle lighting, reminiscent of some of the world's finest luxury sportscars.
Power comes from a pair of 1,850hp MTU 12V4000 M53 engines that can deliver a top speed of 16 knots and a maximum cruising range of 5,500 nautical miles at 12 knots.
Other superyachts currently under development at the Dutch yard include the 110 metre flagship Project 1007, which is due for completion in 2018.
