Fully-custom Feadship superyacht ARROW (Project 703) launched
December 17, 2019
The 75m/246ft motor yacht ARROW is the first Feadship vessel to be designed by Jonny Horsfield and his London-based team at H2 Yacht Design in addition to being the first new-build luxury yacht for her new Owners.
“The cooperation between these parties, the yard in Aalsmeer and De Voogt Naval Architects has been exceptionally smooth,” Feadship director Henk de Vries commented. “It illustrates how we can leverage on our immense experience with fully custom yachts to ensure owners and their representatives feel confident about the major investments involved and actually enjoy the process. Project manager Mark Jansen has an innate ability to invest in the relationships that form the heart of a bespoke build like this, and Project 703 has brought out the best in everyone involved.”
The exterior styling is described as complex and elegant, creating bold and sweeping lines through the combined effect of multiple sculpted shapes. The outdoor furniture also shares in this detailing, and back-lit marble and varnished teak complete the look. A low glass railing follows the sleek lines from bow to stern with minimal impediment to views. Towering deck heights and broad gangways enhance the sense of space on board. The sundeck will become a hub for outdoor socialising and has a custom mosaic-lined Jacuzzi, while the beach club boasts a unique bar.
The interiors have received just as much attention to detail, with an emphasis on architectural structures that complement the exterior styling. More information on the layout and materials is expected at a later date. The technical achievements are also impressive and ARROW can claim remarkable sound dampening work to make the engines and on board living as silent as possible.
