Feadship has launched the 44.20 metre (145’0”) Moon Sand superyacht. After the completion of a number of new builds in partnership with renowned exterior designers over the past year, Moon Sand is a salient reminder of the formidable design expertise Feadship has in-house.
Like every pure custom Feadship, Moon Sand is first and foremost a reflection of the owners who commissioned her. The look, feel and function of this striking new Feadship certainly benefits from the high degree of input from the clients, who liaised with De Voogt Design closely on every aspect.
“Over the past months we have completed an exceptional number of Feadships, ranging in size from 44 to over 100 metres,” commented Feadship Sales Director Bas Nederpelt at the launch ceremony. “We have also had the pleasure to work with some marvellous exterior designers, such as Ed Dubois, Tim Heywood and Andrew Winch. Moon Sand is a testimony to the design excellence we at Feadship can offer clients ourselves.
Owner’s representative James Hutchinson agreed with these sentiments: “Even the smallest details are important to Moon Sand’s owners and I am proud to have been a part of this project. Working with Feadship makes everything achievable as they know that the key to a truly magnificent yacht is not just what you see, but also the meticulous attention to detail that you don’t. Moon Sand is the result of a collective passion from the owners, designer and shipyard to deliver a truly exceptional yacht and – as one of the most specified ever in her class – she is precisely that.” Three themes…The owners of Moon Sand are highly experienced and the detailed design brief for their Feadship can be summarised in three key elements – namely light, space and freedom of choice in terms of recreation. An obvious manifestation are the large windows and absence of mullions in the bridge deck lounge, main lounge, dining area, study/lobby and forward owner’s stateroom, all of which offer superlative views. These are magnified further on the main deck by having a large section of clear glass inset into the bulwark amidships.
