Feadship’s Future Concept yacht, which will be unveiled on the opening morning of the Monaco Yacht Show in September, comes with a significant added extra: a client. The yard describes him as “a great fan of sailing boats who is now exploring the options for a motor yacht: a Feadship that will criss-cross the oceans, enabling him to disseminate knowledge to an expectant world”.

He is also described by Feadship as:
• A man who is globally acknowledged as an unrivalled genius in his field.
• A leading individual who likes nothing more than to push the window of innovation and stretch the boundaries of the possible.
• A client able to combine theory with practice with effortless ease.

Currently, we’ve only got a teasing graphic of the new concept (above), but Feadship says that like its predecessors such as X-Stream, F-Stream, Aeon, Breathe and Qi¸ “the design takes a highly imaginative approach to the likely requirements and desires of the next generation of superyacht owners”.

“All Feadship owners are assured of maximum privacy and we cannot reveal the identity of this new potential client at this stage,” says Francis Vermeer, head of marketing at Feadship. “However, there are strong rumours that he will attend the Monaco show in person. And as this man is also renowned for his enormous sense of humour, this promises to be a memorable occasion for all concerned.”
