The 62-metre Feadship superyacht Sea Owl has been unveiled at the yard before sea trials. With a distinctive jade mist green and oyster-white colour scheme, Sea Owl’s pleasingly seamanlike lines have been designed by Andrew Winch for experienced owners. The yacht’s official launch is scheduled for July.
Anthony Sands of Edge Yachts, who has represented the owners on the project from the early design phase, says that Sea Owl is “a true work of art and quite possibly the most customised 62-metre yacht ever built”. The owners’ vision for the yacht called for complex technical specifications, including an extraordinarily sophisticated security system that both yard and owners’ team regard as possibly the most elaborate ever built into a yacht. The interior, also by Andrew Winch, is described as “breathtakingly beautiful” by Sands. Few details have been released but the yard says it contains a detailed selection of hand-carved pieces, sculptures, petrified wood items and marble.
Captain John Watson, who has spent the last year at the yard, describes the build at Feadship as “an enlightening and extraordinarily professional experience”. He adds: “There is a wonderful family atmosphere and it has been fabulous to work in a yard with craftsmen who have applied their skills to Feadship for decades. More importantly, perhaps, I believe that the owners have also very much enjoyed the design and construction process. It takes very special skills to transform such a vision into a solid structure, and Feadship have succeeded in doing so with flying colours.”
