Feadship launches 99.95-metre superyacht Moonrise

Feaship has launched the 99.95-metre motoryacht Moonrise at its yard in Makkum, the Netherlands. The vessel boasts a vertical bow and a superstructure entirely clad in glass as well as low noise and vibration levels.

The vessel was designed by Studio De Voogt. Thanks to a beam of 15.5 metres, the Moonrise has a large volume. Exterior highlights of note include the way that the superstructure is entirely clad in glass, the helipad on the foredeck and the large beach club aft.

It can accommodate sixteen people in eight staterooms and up to 32 crew. Rémi Tessier Design was responsible for the interior design. The hull is made from steel, the superstructure from aluminium.

Exhaust cleaning and heat recovery

Twin MTU engines enable Moonrise to reach 19.5 knots and its cruising speed is 16 knots, with Quantum stabilisers ensuring a comfortable ride. Exhaust gas treatment has been fitted to the main engines, in addition to the Feadship proprietary generator exhaust cleaning system. A heat recovery system installed on the generators allows the jacuzzi water to be warmed up using far less electrical power. An ECO-certified system for dynamic positioning facilitates energy-saving generator use in this mode.

Minimum noise levels

The naval architecture for Moonrise has been optimised to provide maximum comfort both underway and at anchor. Its propeller and appendages have been designed to ensure minimum noise levels underwater, reducing both the yacht’s impact as well as interior sound levels.

Other features to improve efficiency include extended autonomy, a long cruising range, streamlined hull design and wastewater processing & storage facilities.
