With an elegant blue-grey hull and white superstructure, Project 713 continues Feadship's progress toward its climate neutrality target for 2030, following the launches of Obsidian and Project 821.Designed by Studio De Voogt with interiors by Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design, Project 713 features several innovative technologies aimed at reducing environmental impact.
