Feadship sells first superyacht to China
Published: Friday, 08 June 2012
Feadship has become the first Western shipyard to sell a new-built 45m superyacht to an owner from China. Following a recent tour of the Far East by the award-winning Feadship Helix, a Chinese client requested a similar-sized vessel that would also include a helicopter deck. Feadship designed and engineered this option and presented it for approval in a timely manner. Featuring one owner’s stateroom with separate bathroom and dressing room, it can accommodate two guests in owner’s lounge and eight guests in four guest staterooms. With twin MTU 12V2000M70 – 788 kW / 1055 bhp, the yacht reaches a maximum speed of 14.5 knots. Construction is now commencing to ensure the delivery before the Chinese New Year in 2013.
