The First Feadship Launch of 2016

(With extra pictures) Feadship launched the 66.25-metre Vanish in a rock ‘n’ roll ceremony on Saturday 23 January at Kaag Island.

Highlights on this latest scion of the Feadship fleet include a free-standing staircase flanked by a glass wall over three decks, an extendable balcony for the owner’s stateroom and a highly innovative transom design. On this particular build, Feadship teamed up with Eidsgaard Design.

Modern and Harmonious

Vanish's modern and powerful exterior profile is softened by harmonious lines and the use of varnished teak, including cap rails with a diameter of more than 25 centimetres. The unusual transom was designed to provide intimate contact with the water while meeting the owner’s desire not to feel intimidated by the hull’s bulk when arriving by tender or swimming from the sea terrace.

Sliding Balcony

The balcony for the full-beam owner’s suite is another hugely impressive feat of engineering. A teak-covered platform slides out from under the starboard companionway using an innovative pull-out mechanism, locking in place flush with the floor level of the stateroom to give a seamless transition through glass sliding doors.

In addition to the owner’s quarters, Vanish also has four guest suites and a large VIP stateroom on the main deck that can be converted into two guest suites. Seventeen crew members are on hand to ensure premium service to all who step aboard.
