71m Juice Launched by Feadship in Amsterdam
Feadship has launched the 71m Juice from the shipyard's giant construction hall in the Dutch capital. The new timeless superyacht blend of polished stainless steel, glass and teak offer a classic feel while the exterior lines showcase a sleek and captivatingly contemporary elegance.The owner of Juice, a repeat client for Feadship, has worked tirelessly with the designers at RWD to ensure a refined exterior flow with soft lines and distinctive creases. All unnecessary elements have been removed to generate an elegant yet masculine look. The walk-around superstructure along with a striking coherence between the decks on a superyacht.From the pillars and the stairs to the base of the large eight-meter pool on the main deck, all structural parts of the exterior have been finished in polished stainless steel. Transparent features are made of glass, including the railings and the sides of the pool, and large flat and curved glazed panels ensure unrestricted views.Beneath the flush foredeck are housed three custom tenders – a ten-meter limo, eight-meter guest RIB and a rescue boat – that are launched via the gullwing doors in the hull.The interior was drawn by Peter Marino in close cooperation with the client. Juice has a complete owner’s deck between the bridge and main decks, an unusual acquisition for a yacht of this size. Juice also features four impressive guest suites on the main deck, a large beach club, a lower deck cinema, and a gymnasium on the sun deck.The name reflects the fact that the owner is a keen collector of modern art and the 3D logo of the name on the funnel is inspired by an eponymous 1967 work by American artist Ed Ruscha. Auction connoisseurs will recognise the nod to ‘juice on top’, an expression from that world with a similar meaning to ‘icing on the cake’. 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. Feadship is well-known as one of the Netherlands’ most elite yacht builders and delivers superyachts from 50–100+ meters in length.Credits: Feadship
Video: Journey of the 80m Galactica
After four years of construction, the 80m all-aluminum Galactica left the facility in Oss and went to her maiden voyage through the Dutch canals and rivers. “We have been touched by the number of people who gathered on the riverbanks, on the bridges applauding when she passed by, and the crowd that gathered to welcome her in Harlingen,” mentioned Heesen at the shipyard’s Facebook.The voyage from Oss to the North Sea as usual took 3–4 month of preparation, with many permits and certificates required.The 80 meter superyacht with a gross tonnage of 1,700GT and a top speed of almost 30 knots, became the biggest and fastest all-aluminium yacht ever built. Her exterior was made by the renowned British studio of Winch Design. Clean lines, a sporty silhouette and the extensive use of glass create a timeless, dynamic profile, which will look as good in twenty years as it does today at launch. Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design penned her light and soothing interior. Now Galactica starts her sea trials. Heesen Yachts is a Dutch ship building company that specializes in custom-built superyachts in aluminium and steel from 30m to 70m in size. Founded in 1978, it has launched more than 170 yachts since its inception.Credits: Heesen Facebook
