Feadship launches 95m hybrid motoryacht
After what Feadship describes as years of fine-tuning, engineering, planning, and hard work by the many skilled craftspeople in Makkum, the Feadship yard has launched 95m Bliss. The yacht benefits from the very latest hybrid propulsion and, with Polar Code certification, is set to be a world traveller.
She is fully equipped and certified to cruise polar regions, anchor in deep water, or keep position with her dynamic positioning system. Bliss sails with a top speed of 17 knots and has a range of 6,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots.
Advanced security and life-safety systems have been discretely incorporated and De Voogt Naval Architects has been heavily involved in the design and engineering of the hybrid propulsion system to enable the yacht to sail in diesel-electric mode. This, says Feadship, is exceptionally flexible in terms of its ultra-efficient energy consumption and offering major fuel savings plus helping to protect the environment.
There are nine guest cabins, large lounges, and an extensive gym and wellness area. Combined with expansive exterior deck areas, a large pool, and a commercially certified helideck which converts into a full sports and games deck, Feadship says Bliss is prepared for endless family fun.
“The experienced members of the project team at Feadship in Makkum led by project manager Albert Abma have always taken the extra steps needed to achieve an excellent result,” says Ron Kleverlaan, owner’s representative.
“Feadship is renowned for offering a unique experience to owners who wish to become personally involved and, in this case, the client embraced every opportunity to play a role. He also thoroughly enjoyed meeting the craftspeople and learning about our processes at the yard. Bliss really is a Feadship built with, as well as for, her owner,” says Albert Abma.
