Sixteen people will soon be able to start cruising aboard the Feadship Moonrise. The shipyard celebrated the launch of this nearly 328-footer (99.95-meter) with a crowd of onlookers gathered on nearby shores. Interestingly, the megayacht marks the largest-waterline-length project produced in The Netherlands.
With naval architecture by Feadship’s own De Voogt studio, and styling by the studio in collaboration with Rémi Tessier Design, the yacht has an imposing stance. Simultaneously, glass expanses along her decks and long lines leading to a plumb bow keep her simple and clean.
Speaking of simple, the Feadship Moonrise has a minimalist design inside, which Rémi Tessier Design executed as well. Although images and full information are not available at this point, the feeling should be welcoming. In keeping with current trends, the owners requested a beach club. This additionally includes a spa area and gym. High ceiling characterize all the decks, too, to accentuate the voluminous feel for the owners and the guests. Finally, as much as the glass on each deck keeps guest areas light and bright, the 32-person crew benefits from good natural lighting in their quarters, too. In fact, the owners wanted “exceptionally high-end crew accommodations,” according to Feadship.
As part of an ongoing shipyard effort to construct efficient megayachts, the Feadship Moonrise has a few notable systems. For instance, she features a heat-recovery system. It warms the hot tub, therefore easing the yacht’s electricity generation. In addition, the naval-architecture team devised a station-keeping system that mimics dynamic positioning. It employs the gensets, and adjusts to be as energy-conscious with the gensets’ fuel consumption as possible, too.
Sea trials should confirm a 19½-knot top speed and a 16-knot cruising speed under MTU power. The shipyard said it paid extra attention to underwater vibration and sound stemming from the propellers as well.
