75m now embarks on sea trials
A large crowd of Feadship personnel and invited guests joined the owner and his party on Friday 10 January for the christening and official naming ceremony of the newest member of the Feadship family – the 75m Arrow.
Having originally left the construction hall at the Feadship yard in Aalsmeer in mid-December, this launch event was the first occasion that the nearly completed Arrowhad been seen with her lighting added and exterior outfitting complete. A pavilion was especially erected on the quay next to the yacht for the presentation, which began with Feadship director Henk de Vries thanking the owner for initiating a new trend.
“While all Feadships are pure custom projects, there have been quite a number built recently around the 90-metre mark, considerably longer than the 60-metre spectrum that was more common a decade or two ago. At 75 metres, Arrow is right in the middle of this range and a trailblazer for a new and ground-breaking line of super-luxurious boats in this length. She is also an exceptional personal family yacht, quite possibly the best we have ever completed. Arrow is the perfect way for Feadship to launch into a new decade with a cutting-edge design that is very much the face of this period of the 21st century.”
Arrow now embark on her sea trials.
