In celebration of 70 years in business, Feadship has revealed a specially-commissioned glass composition made up of one unique glass piece for 300 of the 450 of its luxury yachts ever built. After being presented in Monaco, this ‘Jewels in the Crown’ sculpture is making its way to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show running from the 30th of October until the 3rd of November.
The circular pieces of glass in the Jewels in the Crown vary in size from 80mm to 140mm: Liquid glass was poured into a custom-made mould cast by bronze experts and then pressed down using a piece of graphite until cooled. The top layer was then ground down to form a completely flat surface onto which the profiles of more than 300 Feadship vessels were individually glued. The profiles were added by hand into a ring inside out so as to conceal the sides, completed by a faceted finish. A number of Feadship Owners attending the Monaco Yacht Show were also presented with their very own ‘jewel’, which was custom-made to feature their Feadship.
So, how much does it cost to charter a yacht by Feadship? Below is a sample of true works of art in a form of the largest fully-custom-built superyachts by this renowned and respected Dutch yacht builder:
Built in 2011, with an interior by Remi Tessier Design, luxury yacht AIR is a refined modernist motor yacht that contrasts monochrome sections with splashes of colour. From her beach club complete with gym, massage room and sauna to her bright and light main deck study and her alfresco cinema that can be enjoyed from the swimming pool on the foredeck, there is plenty to keep guests occupied during a cruise between destinations. 12 guests are accommodated over six spacious guest cabins, with a professional crew of 21.
As one of this year’s launches motor yacht SYZYGY 818 has garnered much attention at the Monaco Yacht Show 2019 and her interiors come from highly regarded Sinot Design. Details on her amenities have yet to be released by the shipyard, but when she becomes available for charter she will accommodate up to 12 guests across six en-suite cabins and have a crew of 18 to keep everything running smoothly onboard.
Meticulously maintained superyacht UTOPIA was built in 2004 and has received maintenance work and refits at regular five-year intervals, the last being in 2018. Accommodating 12 pax over six en-suite cabins, guests love her spacious outdoor areas which include a duplex sundeck, two large Jacuzzis and massive alfresco lounging spaces perfect for hosting large outdoor gatherings. She also comes with a great selection of water toys and elegant classic interiors where widescreen TVs are cleverly hidden in picture frames and fireplaces enhance the evening ambience.
One of the highly anticipated launches of 2016, nearly four years on motor yacht JOY remains an exceptional example of Feadship craftsmanship with the wooden wall panelling featuring floral details from the foyer staircase to the winter garden for alfresco dining.

She accommodates up to 12 guests over seven en-suite cabins and has an expert crew of 19 which includes a masseuse – please enquire for pricing.
Feadship yachts seem to attract careful Owners and M/Y ANNA I is another example of a highly maintained vessel. Guests will step aboard to find everything ship-shape before relishing every moment entertaining with others or spending time on personal pursuits. For parties, there is a dance floor, a large projector screen and karaoke system, while those who want to work out have a hammam, gymnasium and a fantastic selection of water toys. There is also a helipad for getting everyone on board.
The classic interiors come from Leach Design and the occupants of the Master suite will awaken to feel like royalty in the imposing four-poster bed, while the other 10 guests can expect the utmost comfort in their five en-suite cabins.
When you want to throw a get-together that no one will soon forget, luxury yacht CALLISTO has all the right ingredients – a Michelin-trained chef, stunning contemporary surroundings by renowned designer Terence Disdale, spacious indoor and outdoor social areas – the latter providing a Jacuzzi and plenty of sunbeds – a beach club and a bar.

As a classic contemporary motor yacht, SAMADHI has all the very best modern amenities and technologies within a nostalgic exterior. The health and fitness-conscious have a Jacuzzi, sauna, massage room, gym and wide selection of water toys to keep fit, unwind and indulge guilt-free during their luxury charter, while those simply looking to rest and enjoy the view have panoramic vistas from the main salon and sky lounge, and from the comfort or the alfresco lounge or sundeck where there is also a bar.

She was styled inside and out by Sinot Yacht Design and features bold contrasts in dark wood and light furnishings in her timeless interiors, with subtle art deco accents in the fittings.
