Feadship launched the 92-metre Aquarius in a private ceremony at its Aalsmeer yard on Saturday.
“Having enjoyed his time on yachts from renowned yards, the owner of Aquarius recognised that the only way to move up to the highest possible standard was to come to Feadship,” comments CEO Henk de Vries. “The client is a fiercely competitive player in the hospitality business and highly ambitious in terms of his personal possessions. It has been a pleasure to work with him on this phenomenal project.”
The staterooms and suites are arranged in a way that makes the most of what the yard calls “the owner’s unrivalled understanding of luxury accommodation”. The aim has been to keep the layout user-friendly. The client’s experience in the hospitality and high-end hotel sectors is apparent on Aquarius, with the infrastructure of the galleys, pantries and crew service areas optimised to the highest degree.
Aquarius sleeps 12 guests, looked after by 31 crew. Powered by twin 2,240kW MTUs, the yacht has a range of 5,500 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. The yard says it is confident that, once sea trials get under way, Aquarius will prove to be the quietest Feadship to date.
