The 96.5-metre Feadship Project Vertigo – in build and with a delivery scheduled for the first quarter of next year – is now offered for sale by Peter Insull’s Yacht Marketing.
Featuring exterior styling by Redman Whiteley Dixon, the Feadship Project Vertigo is a sleek and streamlined beauty, with a gently flowing S-shaped sheerline and a strong bow. “The owner has been very involved from the start. He has a great eye for design and was very involved with the look of the boat. He wanted it to be a yacht – not a beach house or an apartment,” says Peter Insull of Peter Insull’s Yacht Marketing, who acted as the owner’s representative for the contract of the boat and has followed the construction throughout for this long-time client.
“He is a very experienced yachtsman who has chartered widely and currently owns a 60-metre,” he adds. “The next few years in the owner’s life have suddenly become very full. He saw the boat just sitting there after launch in 2017 and he won’t be able to use her, and he won’t put a boat of his own up for charter. The build is carrying on as she is very valuable on the market – there aren’t many high-value yachts to be sold.”
The yacht accommodates 18 guests (12 if she chartered) and up to 34 crew (including two pilots and a doctor). Stand-out features include the nine-metre pool aft on the main deck, which lets light into the beach club below through its laminated glass panel floor and boasts a ‘water curtain’ feature. The beach club itself has an extensive wellness area, while sea terraces and windbreaks make it a flexible area. The foredeck, accessed from the bridge deck, can open up to store a Bell 429, as well as being strengthened to allow touch-and-go operations of larger helicopters.
Project Vertigo’s interior is by Chahan Minassian of Chahan Interior Design. Set-piece elements include the limestone and quartz double-sided fireplace and decorative glass screens that separate the main salon from the formal dining area forward, and the floating polished-metal staircase the guides you up through a multi-textured stone and leather passage.
“The interior is going in as scheduled. All of us involved are very proud of the project,” says Peter Insull. The asking price is on application.
