Arrow was dramatically lit up in multi-coloured lights during the evening. The ceremony culminated in the owner smashing a bottle of champagne against the hull.

Speaking at the event, Feadship director Henk de Vries described Arrow as "a trailblazer for a new and ground-breaking line of super-luxurious boats in this length."

He added: "She is also an exceptional personal family yacht, quite possibly the best we have ever completed. Arrow is the perfect way for Feadship to launch into a new decade with a cutting-edge design that is very much the face of this period of the 21st century.”

The owner used the event as an opportunity to thank Feadship, his build representative and the design team led by Jonny Horsfield at H2 Yacht Design.

“Although I had a ten-foot dingy as a child, this is actually my first real boat. I have, however, seen many other people’s superyachts in my life and have to say that Arrow is the most beautiful and amazingly executed of them all," he said.

The owner added: “Working together with Henk and the whole team at Feadship has been an absolute pleasure since the day we agreed the contract. The way everyone seamlessly cooperated to blend the exterior with the interior was an unrivalled experience for me. Having now seen the end result there is no doubt in my mind: the best car is a Rolls-Royce and the equivalent in the superyacht world is definitely a Feadship.”
