Feadship Launch The Highly Anticipated 99m "Dream"

Feadship have had a busy two weeks as they have just launched their second superyacht, the largest Feadship to date. The 99m (325ft) masterpiece "Dream" was created by the Feadship yard in Makkum and is also the largest superyacht ever built in the Netherlands. She is sleek and quick, with a stunning blue hull and exterior detailing, she is a masterpiece that's bound to turn heads in the marinas of the world.

She was more than four years in the making and left the massive building hall today February 7th. She is an elegant and striking tribute to her owner, the talented design team of Andrew Winch and the hundreds of Feadship staff who built her.

As is usually the case with Feadship, confidentiality is a given, but is no secret that Feadship's advanced hull construction system, fine-tuned over many decades, has enabled its craftsmen to construct a slender lightweight vessel that, despite her 99m length, can reach a speed well over 24kts. She is capable of such speeds thanks to her highly efficient hull form and quadruple engines driving controllable pitch propellers swift and efficiently.

The project is also a prime example of Feadship's ability to build superyachts exactly according to the clients specifications, says marketing manager Francis Vermeer: "Because we start every project afresh and are not building from an existing platform, all things are possible for a Feadship owner. It’s all part of the experience that makes creating a Feadship such fun for our clients."

Feadship have a solid order book with superyachts under construction ranging from 44m to 101.50m, there will be many more surprises as 2013 unfolds.
