Feadship superyacht Letani begins sea trials
by Chris Jefferies
With a beam of 7.9 metres and a maximum draught of just 1.8 metres, Letani has been designed to cruise the shallow waters and smaller marinas of Europe, Scandinavia, the Indian Ocean and Asia. The yard adds that this project was completed in record time, with just two years between first meeting and launch.
Accommodation on board Letani is for ten guests split between an owner's cabin, two VIP cabins and a pair of convertible staterooms. Meanwhile the crew quarters comprises three cabins, allowing for a total staff of six people.
Her exterior styling by De Voogt Naval Architects is immediately recognisable and Feadship claims that this design features the highest proportion of superstructure glass that is has built to date. The vertical prow makes good use of her total length, while the extensive superyacht sundeck provides several options for relaxing en plein air.
Power comes from a pair of MTU 16V 2000 M93 diesel engines for a total output of 3,600hp. Further details are being kept under wraps for now, but it is understood that Letani has been registered in the Cayman Islands.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Dutch yard include Feadship 1007. This flagship yacht measures 110 metres LOA, and is due for completion in 2018.
