In addition to creating pure-custom yachts, Feadship also has a business in refitting Feadships for owners who require that their superyacht retains its brand status and be ready in time for the new season. Four iconic Feadships were recently delivered in Feadship-new condition and the variety of work on Aurora, Cipitouba (ex. Seaflower), Drizzle and Tatasu testifies to the endless options offered by the refit teams.



Originally launched in 1992, the 50-metre Aurora has been maintained to Feadship standard throughout her life. The latest refit at the yard in Makkum lasted eight months and Aurora was handed back to her delighted owners at the end of May.



The 40-metre Cipitouba, launched as Seaflower in 2002, has been returned to peak condition since arriving back at the refit yard last September. This extensive project involved fitting new generators including exhaust gas filters (HUG) and a new exhaust system, a new electrical power management system with main switchboard and a new alarm & monitoring system. The interior was also given a comprehensive makeover, with a new main deck salon & dining room and bridge deck lounge. The hardware throughout the interior was renewed, new marble was placed in the guest bathrooms and an impressive new AV/IT and CCTV system was installed. Having passed her 15-year Lloyd’s survey, Cipitouba was delivered to her owners early June. 



In addition to the refit projects carried out in its home base in the Netherlands, the Feadship refit team also supports and carries out work on Feadships at other locations. A good example came over the past winter at the MB92 yard in Barcelona with the refit of Drizzle, a 2012 Feadship which now has a new length of 68.77 metres. As well as extending the swimming platform by 1.5 metres, including new stainless steel railings, Drizzle has been given a complete new paintjob and modifications to certain interior areas were made.



The new place for exercise is the sun deck, which has been modified to include the installation of gym equipment. The entire project lasted from October 2016 to the second week of May and was carried out by production personnel from the Feadship yards in Aalsmeer and Makkum.

Feadship’s 94m Project 817 Starts Her Journey To the North Sea
The 94m Project 817 was launched in February and now is on transport from the yard at Kaag to Amsterdam for sea trials and final outfitting. This spectacular vessel was designed by Azure and Studio De Voogt. The interior was made by Peter Marino Architects.Her advanced hybrid propulsion system allows the yacht to cruise on diesel-electric power at 12 knots. In diesel mode she’s able to reach a top speed of 20 knots. Feadship was formed as a group in 1949 as a marketing partnership between six Dutch shipyards, de Vries Lentch, Van de Stadt, Witsen & Vis, Akerboom, De Vries Scheepsbouw and Van Lent Shipyard, and De Voogt Naval Architects.

Video of the Day: A Group’s 83m Concept Comète
The 83m concept Comète comes from the A Group designer Thibaud Le Merdy and yachting director Matt Pegrum. <iframe width=560 height=315 src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/pjco2ulDBXA title=YouTube video player frameborder=0 allow=accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture allowfullscreen></iframe>This design is the result of the perfect balance between spaces open to the surrounding nature and refined, clean forms. Spaces of the yacht were created to be the closest to the sea and what she can offer, without any hindrance. For the exterior design, A Group has worked on a dynamic and the beautiful silhouette without any compromise.The green technologies are also an important part of the project. The creators were closely monitoring the development of hydrogen fuel cells for the project. In addition to batteries for peak shaving and waste heat-recovery systems (for heating the swimming pool and hot water), which are already proven, the yacht can have an all-around efficient energy production and storage system.Her well-engineered hull form and sleek design made of lightweight materials (to reduce propulsion requirements) remain the most effective way to control the environmental footprint of the yacht.The hybrid solution for reduced consumption also makes it possible to redistribute space on the boat, offering the best place of the boat for guests.Comète can accommodate fourteen guests in seven cabins. Her top speed is 16 knots. Credits: A Group
Sanlorenzo Is Starting the Construction of the First Unit of the Superyacht 57Steel
At the La Spezia shipyard, Sanlorenzo is starting construction on the first unit of the superyacht 57Steel, which aims to be one of the new stars of the Sanlorenzo range; she will be equipped with a hybrid diesel/electric engine system. A sophisticated superyacht with an extreme cleanliness of form (something all Sanlorenzo ranges have), she is distinguished by a straight bow, providing an image of importance and decisiveness. The new 57Steel is an ambitious project, the result of intense typological experimentation carried out by the shipyard together with Studio Zuccon International Project, which has led to the creation of a 56.70-meter-long yacht with five decks and a tonnage of 1000 GT.The volumes doubled compared to the 52Steel, which have made it possible to offer indoor and outdoor spaces that are decidedly out of the ordinary for a model of this size and with unprecedented functional content.The innovative layout alters the traditional balance on board: the wheelhouse area, normally forward of the upper deck, has been relocated to an additional deck – a real bridge deck, as on larger yachts – thus making it possible to use the upper deck from a different perspective. This is where the owner's cabin is located, a 54-square-metre space overlooking the very large owner's deck, a private deck from which to enjoy an exclusive view over the infinite sea.The new layout has also made it possible to create a spacious full-beam VIP cabin forward of the main deck that can be used as a second owner's cabin. "The versatility of use that distinguishes the spaces on board is a key element of the 57Steel, which makes it possible to satisfy the many requests of a diverse and multicultural market like that of superyachts,” says Bernardo Zuccon. “A model in which there is no ostentation of the brand and whose external lines are defined and extremely fluid, transparent and clear, in which the language of the shipyard shines through. We can define the 57 Steel as a skilful balancing act between content and container.”The swimming pool, with its transparent floor, allows the passage of light into the environment below; the beach area is 110 square meters. The garage is placed at the bow and can accommodate tenders of up to 7.5 m and numerous toys.Sanlorenzo was founded in 1985 in Viareggio by yacht builder Gionvanni Jannetti. In 2005, Massimo Perrotti became the majority shareholder in the shipyard. Sanlorenzo builds yachts ranging from 28.60 to 62m in length. Credits: Sanlorenzo
Lusben Has Completed the Refit of 48m Perini Navi’s Morning Glory
The Morning Glory is Perini Navi's 48m sailing superyacht, famous for having Australian media magnate Rupert Murdoch as a previous owner. This historic ketch, built in 1993 at the iconic Perini Navi shipyard in Viareggio, has been restored to her original splendor according to the wishes of her Italian owner. Through the Forza 5 company in Milan, Lusben was chosen to carry out the ten-year refit of the yacht.The Lusben team has painted the hull, living areas, and part of the aft cockpit. The generators were also replaced and almost half of the teak deck were refurbished. The refit went on for a total of five months and involved almost fifty workers in total, including direct employees and external suppliers who worked in cooperation with the crew. The owner is now ready to cruise the Mediterranean.Morning Glory is the first of six Perini Navi boats to be launched this season. The remaining five are currently undergoing refits at the Lusben facilities in Livorno and Viareggio, planned for delivery to their owners in the coming weeks.Lusben, with over 60 years of experience in the yacht refit sector, boasts facilities at which know-how, organization, attention to detail, and hospitality make up the foundation for the company philosophy. To further expand the range of services, in 2004 Lusben acquired a new site in Livorno in order to be able to operate on yachts of 120 meters in length. Credits: Lusben
Image Gallery: Inside Sea Coral 2, the third hull of the Arcadia A105
Sea Coral 2 is the third hull in the award-winning Arcadia A105 series. Sea Coral 2 is a 31.5 m long, 7.76 m wide yacht. The hull and deck are built in fibreglass, while some of the veranda’s elements are made with aluminium. All this adds up with a full load displacement of 145 tonnes. The interior decor was created in collaboration with the owner's personal designer and the support of Milan-based Hot Lab firm. "Yet another achievement that underlines how, for Arcadia Yachts, furnishing does not simply mean placing a designer sofa or table on board – it means carefully choosing every detail to enhance the functionality and aesthetics of our yachts,” says Francesco Ansalone, Arcadia Yachts Marketing & Communications manager. "In the case of the Sea Coral 2, we enriched our experience working closely with the designer chosen by the owner and the professional support of Hot Lab design studio," he adds."Having carried out many prestigious projects in some of the most beautiful places in the world, such as Saint-Tropez, Paris, Formentera, Val d'Isère, Casa de Campo, etc. I had no doubts about accepting the task of working on board an Arcadia A105," says Alain Perrier, the owner's designer. “If there is one yacht that makes a difference, it is this one: low on the water, with a sleek profile and a modern design. The Arcadia A105 represents the art of experiencing relaxation, comfort and safety on board an exceptional yacht. That's why I wanted to preserve the spirit and concept of the shipyard, while adding the owner's personality through the decor."The open aft cockpit on the main deck is openThe living hall on the upper deckThe inner bow area of the main deck could be used either as an office or as a second VIP cabinThe large living area at the centre of the main deckAnother view of the main living area on the main deckOne of the twin guest cabins on the lower deck, where the entire sleeping area is locatedThe full-beam owner's cabinThe reverse view of the owner's cabin highlights the TV’s central position: the owner’s access to the bathroom is to the right, while the door to the left leads to the walk-in wardrobeAfter the first few months cruising in the Mediterranean Sea, Sea Coral 2 has crossed the ocean and is now in the Caribbean. Arcadia Yachts is based in Naples, Italy. Since 2008, they have been building semi-custom luxury composite yachts and have succeeded in perfectly integrating artisanal craftsmanship, modern technologies, attention to detail and to the surrounding environment. The Arcadia Yachts fleet has included two ranges since September 2016. The shipyard’s first and most characterising range is the A range, which includes four models (A85, A85s, A105, and A115).The Sherpa range has a new model, the 24m Sherpa XL, which was launched at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival.
