Feadship appears to have delivered superyachts Kamino and Moon Sand Too as they were recently spotted in Norway. Both vessels represent a limited line of five smaller yachts constructed by the Dutch shipyard.
Known as projects 691 and 693, Kamino and Moon Sand Too have 33.5m LOA, 7.9m beam and 1.8m draft. The third yacht, hull 692, will reportedly soon leave the builder's premises.
Naval Architecture and exterior design on both yachts is by De Voogt Naval Architects while the interior comes from Bannenberg & Rowell. As for the accommodation, 10 guests can be carried on board, as well as a crew of 6 professionals.
Three years ago, the owner of a pure custom Feadship asked us to build a smaller yacht to Feadship standards. It needed to have a length and draught that would allow access to new markets where mooring facilities are restricted and facilitate cruising in shallower depths. We don't like saying no to clients at Feadship so we decided to explore whether it was even practical to design and construct a 34-metre cruiser to Feadship quality within the boundaries of this compact size. Our research established that, while building such a custom yacht was indeed possible, it would only be economically viable for the client if we built three of them to the same design template. Turning normal market dynamics on their head, we therefore agreed to our client's proposal as long as he could introduce two more clients who would like to order one of these unique Feadships while, of course, having flexibility in terms of the interior.

Two other buyers eventually heard about this 34 meter template and also asked the shipyard to build them a compact Feadship. As a result two other hulls are currently in-build and expected to be launched next year. Moon Sand Too was reportedly built for the experienced Asian owner of the 46m custom Feadship, Moon Sand, who is speculated to have been the original instigator of the 34-meter series.
