Days after the official launch of one of its latest yachts, Feadship marked yet another launch. The still-confidential Feadship Project 713, in the relatively early stages of construction, transferred to her outfitting shed.
The joined hull and superstructure traveled under the slow and steady guidance of tugboats through the Dutch waterways last week. Specifically, the superyacht departed Shipyard Slob in Papendrecht, belonging to Feadship’s Royal De Vries group, on April 19. She arrived at the Royal De Vries yard in Aalsmeer on April 21.
Few details are available so far about Feadship Project 713. Her length is approximately 196 feet (60 meters), for example. The contemporary styling, with a knife-like bow, might be from Feadship’s own De Voogt Naval Architects, too. That styling includes a raised, elongated foredeck. The interior-design studio and special features of the general arrangement remain under wraps.
Regardless, if current creature-comfort trends apply here, then the yacht has a sunning/seating area fully up top. She also likely has a large pool aft on her main deck and a beach club below. Construction is taking place with the owners’ representatives from JMS Yachting managing the build.
Incidentally, a banner is prominent in the video footage, draped across her superstructure. It translates from Dutch to “Building Superyachts Together,” with the website meaning “working at Feadship.”
The transport of Feadship Project 713 took place on the heels of another pretty confidential superyacht, Feadship Project 710, celebrating her official launch. A much larger megayacht, at 276 feet (84 meters), Project 710 is especially noteworthy for being Feadship’s first biofuel-powered yacht. HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) will be aboard, a direct replacement for diesel fuel. That therefore means the engines and related components don’t need adaptation or any special further treatment. The shipyard further says that HVO will allow Project 710 to reduce her carbon-dioxide emissions by an extraordinary 90 percent.
