The last time any part of her was visible was back in September 2021. Now, though, the Feadship Project 822 yacht, which still remains relatively clandestine, is in the water. Dutch citizens residing near the Royal Van Lent shipyard on Kaag Island were able to watch today as she floated out of her enclosed drydock.
For perspective, the last time anyone in public could see her was when she was largely bare metal. The joined hull and superstructure shell departed from Feadship’s subcontractor in Rotterdam, under the assistance of tugs. She’s remained at the shipyard ever since.
Delivery is on pace before the end of the year. Very little publicity is permitted at this point. For instance, the Seattle interior-design studio Susan Young Interiors has been working with RWD and the owners. RWD additionally is responsible for exterior styling across what appears to be three decks. Naval architecture and engineering for the Feadship Project 822 yacht (“822” is her Royal Van Lent hull number) comes from the shipyard’s own De Voogt Naval Architects.
With an LOA of 248 feet (75.7 meters), the superyacht had her mast go into place shortly after she slipped outside. Further relatively shortly, coinciding with her official launch, Feadship pledges to release more information about her design and construction.
That likely will include the name. Notably, brokerage websites have indicated for some time that it’s Hanami.
