Project 808, the first ever 100 + metre Feadship has left the Royal Van Lent construction hall on Kaag Island in Holland.

The hull had arrived in Kaag in two parts during 2012 and was assembled at the ship yard. At the time of its arrival the Juliana Lock in Gouda could not accommodate the yachts beam and as a result the two sections had to be lifted over the lock.

The yacht builder owns the yacht and plans to operate the 101.5 metre yacht upon completion, as a showpiece.

Moving the outside to a finishing berth will allow completion of the commissioning of the engine room systems and radio equipment, as well as final works on the upper deck and mast

This as yet unnamed yacht will be completed in the spring, after heading out to sea through the newly enlarged Juliana Lock in Gouda.

The yacht is first Feadship to be fully compliant with the new Passenger Yacht Code regulations, allowing more than the usual twelve passengers.

Accommodation and leisure space is spread across six decks.

The sun deck is home to an observation lounge, bar and Jacuzzi, while the bridge deck includes a large terrace with outdoor cinema.

The owner’s deck includes a beautiful full-beam stateroom with double bathrooms, dressing rooms and a sauna, a forward terrace with Jacuzzi, a private office and a study, a lounge and a spacious aft deck area for lounging with a dining table for twenty.

Among the many other features found on the main deck is a 6-metre contraflow swimming pool complete with its own waterfall.

The lower deck is home to an ultra-high definition cinema, a lounge area below the glass-bottom swimming pool, a beach club and a wellness centre.

Intriguingly, the elevator shaft is faced with an interactive video wall throughout the five decks.

The glass corridor through the engine room features an all-purpose interactive screen offering images from the underwater camera plus the latest information on the yacht’s location, propulsion and systems.

Built to the new Passenger Yacht Code regulations with an exterior designed by Tim Heywood, the yacht has been designed as the ideal place for its sixteen guests to enjoy themselves and entertain.

The yacht is certified for chartering and features a fully operational helicopter pad
