First ice-class Feadship leaves construction hall


This is hull #701

Dutch yard Feadship has unveiled its first ice-class yacht.

The 51 vessel has left the construction shed at the yard's Aalsmeer facility.

The yacht is known as Project 701. The exterior of this 51m custom explorer comes from the boards of Feadship’s in-house designers at Studio De Voogt and the interior has been created together with Bannenberg & Rowell Design.


Twin Caterpillar C32 diesel engines will give a top speed of 14.5 knots while the yacht has a range of 4,500 nautical miles and luxury accommodations for twelve people.

The name of this newest member of the Feadship family will be revealed after the private naming ceremony has taken place.
