Feadship’s current superyacht project 96m Vertigo, designed by Redman Whiteley Dixon, has been placed on sale.
Peter Insull of Peter Insull's Yacht Marketing who represents the owner, called the project an opportunity to own a “world-class vessel built to the highest standards” by the Dutch shipyard, for an “experienced owner with a trained eye for style.” The yacht will be delivered within the first quarter of 2017.
Vertigo’s exterior is the result of a collaboration between the owner and British studio Redman Whitely Dixon. Her appearance is characterised by sweeping curves and a functional deck layout to match. Typical Feadship elements such as the stretching flared bow have remained; the bow will serve as a helicopter landing pad with a dedicated hangar below, able to store a Bell 429 helicopter.
Peter Insull also commented, “It is rare that one is so fortunate to be totally involved with a project such as Vertigo to the level and depth that I have been.
“The end result is becoming magnificent. Professionals from within the superyacht community are as one in declaring that Vertigo will become the next ‘Yacht of the Decade’.”
The hull line leads the eye down and aft towards the main deck aft where a 9m x 4m swimming pool can be found. Toughened laminated glass panels were used to construct the pool and form the ceiling of the beach club below.
Inside, Vertigo will be able to accommodate 18 guests and a crew of 34. The Paris-based interior design house Chahan Interior Design was appointed to create elegant and sophisticated interior spaces. Vertigo’s owner has collaborated with Chahan Interior Design for many years on numerous projects. Open and uncluttered living areas adhere to the owner’s brief for space and comfort on board.
