Project 808 hit the water for the first time on friday and measures 101.5-metres. She ranks as Feadship’s biggest build to date, stealing the crown from the 99-metre Madame Gu.
The move will allow for the final stages of her construction, including work on the upper deck and masts, and work on her engine room systems.
Notably, she is Feadship’s first superyacht to comply with the new Passenger Yacht Code regulations, meaning she can sleep considerably more than 12 guests, with cabin space for up to 20.She boasts an exterior designed by Tim Heywood, with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure.
On board entertainment includes an outdoor cinema on the bridge deck, as well as ultra-high definition cinema on the lower deck. Latest technology audio-visual systems feature throughout the yacht: the elevator shaft is faced with a 15-metre interactive video wall and a glass walkway through the engine room features an interactive screen showing images from the underwater camera and the latest cruising information.
A six-metre contraflow swimming pool is the star of the main deck, and a further two jacuzzis feature on the sundeck and the owner’s private deck. 3 custom Pascoe tenders, wave runners, Seabobs, windsurfers, waterslides and various inflatables provide further entertainment on the water.
Four MTU engines provide a staggering top speed of 22 knots, and she has a range of 5,000 nautical miles. She is due for launch in Spring 2015.
