Christmas came a few days early for the owner of the still-confidential Feadship 1012 project. The hull slid out of its build shed in the early-morning hours of December 22 and headed under tow to Feadship’s Makkum shipyard that same day.
The journey saw the hull depart the city of Papendrecht for the city of Makkum in The Netherlands. It’s a relatively long journey requiring several hours. (By comparison, the most direct route by automobile is about a 123-mile/198-kilometer journey.)
No artists’ renderings have ever been released publicly of Feadship 1012. Regardless, the superyacht’s overall styling might be traditional, judging from the classically flared bow. The design studio responsible for exterior styling remains unknown as well.
So, too, does the design studio working with the owner for the interior. The few details that we do know, though, are a length of 300 feet (91.5 meters) and a delivery date in either 2024 or 2025.
Judging by visible features, however, it appears that Feadship 1012 may have a beach club. Large, square side hatches alongside the transom could indicate fold-down platforms to open up the space. Additionally, much larger hatches a bit farther forward could conceal tenders.
In related Feadship news, the equally confidential project 1010 is nearly finished. Project 1010 headed out on sea trials in October. Her LOA: 387 feet (118 meters).
