The yacht is for the Dutch yard's first Australian client.
“The story of this Feadship very much revolves around the journey of the client and his family,” says Feadship director Jan-Bart Verkuyl. “He was the first owner ever to give a speech at the start of the build to the entire workforce, sharing his life story and why this Feadship would be so important to him and his family. They were very involved in the build and the owner also flew his friends halfway around the world to share the fun of the construction process with them on several occasions.”
Much effort has been made to make the interior as family-friendly as possible, ensuring that the yacht caters to all generations. The exterior lines are sleek and modern, while still retaining classic Feadship DNA.
“The brief was to create a timeless exterior profile with lots of subtle details, many of which are inspired by an automotive aesthetic,” explains Charlie Baker, project manager at RWD. “Hasna’s profile has an understated elegance interrupted by standout features such as the giant swimming pool on the aft main deck with its infinity waterfall and curved glass sections. Profile elements of note include the sculptural mast structure, the subtle scoops that run around the main superstructure, and the large floating stainless steel cap rail. The latter was an incredible challenge to build, one which Feadship executed exceedingly well.”
The sundeck is made for outdoor living, with a large Aussie barbecue and grill, a three-metre Jacuzzi and 25-metre of deck space.
“The owner has been visiting boat shows for twenty-plus years leading up to this moment,” concludes Hasna’s captain Steve Barker. “Having owned and chartered other yachts, he ultimately chose Feadship for his first large build based on a conviction that quality and value for money are paramount. He was not disappointed: the craftsmanship and attention to detail is outstanding and a testament to the men and women involved. The owner sees Feadship as the pinnacle of custom yachtbuilding – and my experiences here during the build have confirmed that.”
On the interior, textures include whitewashed oak with contrasts in stained walnut, linens and cottons for the walls and bronze detailing. Smoked eucalyptus in the owner’s suite reflects the owner’s heritage and the overall interior style features a miriad array of woods and finishes such as mother-of-pearl, teak, cedar, marble, metal, leather and various fabrics.
Twin MTU engines power the yacht at a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots, while the range is projected to be 5,500 nautical miles at 12 knots. The yacht will undergo sea trials before being handed over later this summer.
