Latest Feadship Yacht Named and Christened

Feadship’s latest feat has been named and christened. The 75-metre yacht Arrow is considered one of the Dutch yachtbuilder’s ‘trailblazers’ and will now embark on its sea trials.

The ceremony took place on 10 January at the Feadship yard in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands. The vessel had already left the construction hall mid-December, but the launch event was the first occasion that the nearly completed Arrow had been seen with its lighting added and exterior outfitting complete.

‘While all Feadships are pure custom projects, there have been quite a number built recently around the 90-metre mark, considerably longer than the 60-metre spectrum that was more common a decade or two ago,’ says Feadship director Henk de Vries. ‘At 75 metres, Arrow is right in the middle of this range and a trailblazer for a new and ground-breaking line of super-luxurious boats in this length. She is also an exceptional personal family yacht, quite possibly the best we have ever completed. Arrow is the perfect way for Feadship to launch into a new decade with a cutting-edge design that is very much the face of this period of the 21st century.’
