  1. Feadship launches 67-meter "Drizzle" superyacht


    Over the weekend Dutch yacht builder Feadship launched 67-meter hull 683, "Drizzle", at their Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw facilities in Aalsmeer, The Netherlands. The full-custom vessel is a new take on the owners' previous yacht, a 55-meter Feadship as well.

    Drizzle’s exterior offers a blend of classic and modern, with a traditional low profile and contemporary feel. “Taking "Twizzle" as the design template, it was a major challenge to retain her classic light lines while extending the vessel by over 20 percent,” says Ruud Bakker from Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects. “We also added further refinements in terms of functionality, such as the central staircase that facilitates both guest and crew access to the sun deck. Drizzle contains the very latest systems and technologies.”

    Redman Whiteley Dixon created a contemporary, warm and rich interior that again takes Twizzle as a reference point before being tailored to the principals’ bespoke taste. "Only months after handover of Twizzle to the new owners, we were discussing the perfect larger version", says Henk de Vries, "and within months we had defined the new version in detail”.

    The interior feels like a genuine home-from-home and will have a broad appeal while being entirely unique. Crew quarters are taken to an exceptional quality level even by Feadship’s industry-leading standards. “This reflects the owner’s concern for crew welfare and a wish that their facilities should be finished to the highest possible standard,” says Drizzle’s Captain James Duggan. “Such attention to detail will be greatly appreciated and respected by the crew. Having been at De Vries for a previous build and sailed on two of their yachts, including Twizzle, my experience is that Feadship consistently delivers a fantastic product, which is exactly what we have now. It is a pleasure to work with the entire team at the De Vries yard, all of whom clearly take enormous pride and pleasure in their work. Drizzle is a credit to them and the entire Feadship experience.”
