Feadship’s latest superyacht is the 60.4-metre Rock.It, built as a family yacht for what Feadship says is an “unconventional and no-compromise client”. The yacht’s exterior is certainly striking, and is the work of exterior stylists from Sinot Yacht Design and naval architects from Feadship. “Rock.It is very sleek and bold without being pretentious,” says Sander Sinot. “A natural flow of lines and surfaces makes the yacht breathe speed and exude elegance.”

Inside, dark woods and light stones are blended in a modern interior, while crotched mahogany and striking diagonally veneered sycamore panelling, as well as back-lit pure white onyx and other marbles, create a personal touch. One of the most striking features is the skylight in the sundeck canopy, which dims automatically depending on the strength of the sun. The yacht also features the first-time application on a superyacht of an intuitive control and dynamic-positioning system developed from naval applications. “This manoeuvring system represents a real step towards the future. To make it happen at this point in time took real vision and considerable skill,” says Rock.It’s captain.

“Each Feadship is unique and no two Feadship owners are the same,” said Feadship director Henk de Vries to an audience of several hundred guests at the launch ceremony. “It is our privilege at Feadship to create the most amazing yachts on the oceans for the most fascinating people on the planet, and it has been an amazing and sometimes rollercoaster ride to partner with the owner of Rock.It.”
