The 69.5-metre Feadship launches and moves to new shed for finishing after a cruise along the waterways
The 69.5-metre Feadship Project 696 has left the yard in Papendrecht and moved to Aalsmeer, where she will be finished in the main shed for the next 18 months. Following a cruise along the Dutch waterways, there was a party for around 450 Feadship workers.
The yacht sold earlier this year, and features naval architecture by De Voogt and an interior by Redman Whitely Dixon. Project 696 has been created by owners who have ocean expedition in mind. Lee Marine of Phuket, Thailand, who sold the yacht, is also overseeing the build. “We have a first-class team in place and are already over one year into a seamless and pleasing build process for a very happy owner,” says Joshua Lee, founder and managing director of Lee Marine. “The yacht will be quite distinctive with many long-range features that may surprise some corners of the market.”
