Siran Relaunched After Refit at Feadship


The 70-metre Feadship Siran, a yacht that has been in the same hands for 24 years has been relaunched having completed a nine-month refit at the Feadship yard in Makkum.

The last of seven magnificent Feadships to be designed by the legendary Jon Bannenberg, Siran was considered a revolutionary yacht in many ways at the time of her launch in 1991.

Her radically styled windows and the innovative tender positioning were among many notable features.

The owners returned to Feadship in 2005 to embark on a significant rebuild that saw the yacht extended from her original 67 metres to 70 metres in length. The sun deck was also given a new superstructure in order to accommodate a gym and an entertainment room.

This latest refit has seen further adaptations to her sun deck superstructure. More of the aft deck has been covered to provide better protection on windy days at sea.

The composite sun deck roofing structure has been extended by around 2.5 metres, supported by aluminium side walls with pivoting glass windbreak panels in the same style as the existing sun deck side windows.

The owner also made use of the period in the giant covered dock at the Feadship Makkum yard to have some paintwork done on the hull, upgrade to new highly- skewed low noise propellers and rearrange two crew cabins in a way which better accommodates the junior crew onboard.
