Feadship’s largest superyacht leaves shipyard

At 101.5m (333ft) LOA, Project 808 is the largest superyacht ever built by Dutch shipyard, Feadship.

The new hull, reportedly named ‘Symphony’, left the Kaag shipyard on Thursday before traversing the Gouwe Aquaduct above the busy A12 Hague-Arnhem carriageway on her route to her final destination of Rotterdam Harbour – not an uncommon sight in the Netherlands.

She carefully navigated the Juliana Lock in Gouda, which was widened to 14 metres in 2013, providing just enough space for the 13.8m beam to pass through.

With traditional fenders too big for the passage, crew members were on hand with makeshift carpet-covered boards to protect the hull on its route, with the passage through Woubrugsebrdge equally as tight.

Throughout, the route was lined with fans and bystanders who were often just an arm’s length away from Holland’s largest superyacht, with many taking photographs that are now displayed on the Feadship Fan Club Facebook Page. Posts here state that Project 808 is now preparing for her final outfitting, sea trials and delivery.

Launched at the end of January, motor yacht Symphony was designed by the multi-award winning team at Tim Heywood design, with naval architecture by De Voogt and interior styling by Zuretti. 

She is the first Feadship hull to be fully compliant with Passenger Yacht Code (PYC) regulations making her able to accommodate up to 20 guests rather than the standard number of 12 passengers across eight staterooms, including one VIP full-beam stateroom, a double owner’s stateroom and up to six additional guests in lower deck cabins.

She boasts state-of-the-art amenities including a fully-certified helipad, outdoor cinema, beach club and wellness centre and a 15m interactive video wall within her elevator.
