Dutch yard Feadship has revealed a 63 metre all-aluminium sports yacht concept named Project 3073.
Presented in the third episode of Feadship Unveils, a YouTube series in which the yard revisits designs that were never built, Project 3073 is described as an “exceptionally fast Feadship”.
The concept was presented by Feadship chief executive Henk de Vries and head of design Tanno Weeda, who led the development process behind the potential future Feadship sports yacht.
The concept was initially developed for a client who already owned two Mangusta superyachts and asked Feadship to create “something sleek and sporty and elegant”. Other requirements included a top speed of 25-30 knots and a wheelhouse in the saloon.
The design features an open wheelhouse and sleek exterior with a state-of-the-art propulsion system that deploys water jets instead of propellers. Aft, Project 3073 features a full-sized glass-bottomed pool.
Weeda described this as “one of the most interesting parts of the yacht”.
He added: “The owner’s area Is below. The light [from the glass bottomed pool] gives a nice, elegant idea of the space below.”
The presentation of the sports yacht follows the 109 metre superyacht design Project Freddie Gump, also revealed as part of the Feadship Unveils series.
