An early glimpse of the new Feadship

Project 705 was commissioned by a repeat client and in just a few weeks the name of the 72.85-meter Project 705 will be revealed at the launch ceremony.

As Project 705 appeared from the construction hall at the yard in Aalsmeer, onlookers were drawn to the beautiful combination of a dark blue hull, white superstructure and a continuous band of glass which is flush to the exterior. Glass railings with a teak cap rail offered another visual treat, along with a wealth of stainless steel and high gloss eucalyptus details.

Watching as Project 705 emerged into the light, project manager Gerhard Dekker praised the spirit of cooperation between the owner’s team, the designers from RWD, Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects and the yard in Aalsmeer. “It may be a cliché but I truly believe that it takes a team to build a dream, and the way in which everyone has played their part in creating this exceptional vessel is a textbook example of teamwork.”
