Feadship has launched the 35-metre motoryacht Letani for a client resident in the Far East. Designed to allow access to shallow waters and smaller marinas in Europe, Scandinavia, the Indian Ocean and Asia, this new Feadship has has been completed in two years after the first meeting with the client.One of the youngest Feadship owners to date celebrated the culmination of a long-held ambition. “I’ve been privileged to be on various different superyachts over the last ten years,” he told the assembled workforce at Aalsmeer yard during the christening ceremony.Every time I see a Feadship come by I had two feelings: one, ‘that’s a very special yacht’ and two, ‘I want to get off my boat and step on the Feadship’. It is very exciting that I now get to board my very own Feadship for the first time. The only bad news about this launch is that we’ll miss our visits to the shipyard… We’ve felt part of the family from the keel laying ceremony onwards and building a Feadship has been a wonderful experienceFeadship director Bas Nederpelt thanked the owners for their contribution and at this point the champagne bottle was broken on Letani’s straight bow, one ofthe features which give the yacht a top speed of over 20 knots. She has a contemporary exterior profile with elegant lines and large windows.Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design and Studio Liaigre worked in close collaboration to create a warm, comfortable and liveable apartment-like interior with clean and minimal detailing. A calm atmosphere prevails with smoked eucalyptus combining with deeply smoked and washed oak flooring and randomly veneered wall panels.Letani’s layout and its functions are also designed around the owners and their family. A fine example is the special TV nook which divides the lounge and dining room. As the television is on a swivelling bracket it can also be viewed from a saloon area geared to gathering people together. The dining area has an informal French bistro ambience, with a tapered table and long banquette. Elsewhere, the various accommodations for eight in the owner’s stateroom, full-beam VIP and two convertible guest suites also exude relaxation.
