The all-aluminium hull of the 58m/190ft superyacht currently known only as Hull 699 was moved into the Feadship facilities at Aalsmeer on the 11th of October, a process which took six hours involving two cranes and was captures by superyacht aficionados Dutch Yachting.
Featuring the exterior styling of Philippe Briand of Vitruvius Yachts with naval architecture by De Voogt, Hull 699 has a low profile and strong modern lines, as seen in her plumb bow and stern. Her vital statistics include a beam just short of 11m/36ft and a draft of 2.6m/8.5ft. Claudio Cicconetti and the Christian Liaigre studio will be responsible for completing the custom interiors.

Few details have been released on this secretive project but she is expected to be fitted with twin 1,450hp MTU 12V2000 M72 diesel engines to reach a top speed of 16 knots. Sections of the bulwark appear to fold out, making room for a side-loading tender garage and possibly a terrace for one of the lower deck cabins.
Hull 699 is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2019.
