With her 110-metre length, 1007 will be the largest yacht ever built by Feadship and the second largest yacht ever built in the Netherlands, after the 110.1-metre Oceanco Jubilee.
The largest Feadship superyacht to date, Project 1007, is approaching sea trials. The superyacht, which is now understood to be known as Anna, was previously launched at the yard’s Makkum facility in June.
Project 1007 was reported to have been moved through the centre of Amsterdam during the weekend to Damen’s capital based facility. It is understood she is set to have final steering and propulsion gear fitted ahead of scheduled sea trials in the North Sea.
Styled inside by Michael Leach Design in collaboration with the owner’s personal New York decorator Brian McCarthy Inc., the 110 metre Project 1007 features in-house naval architecture by De Voogt. Project 1007 was first spotted outside its shed at Feadship’s Papendrecht sub-contractor Scheepswerf Slob in December 2016 after which the hull and superstructure were moved to Makkum for fit-out ahead of a planned 2018 delivery.
Very few details are known about this new superyacht but initial pictures showed that the steel hull supports an aluminium superstructure. These latest images also reveal a striking exterior which makes good use of glass and offers vast outdoor deck spaces.
This four-deck displacement yacht is being built to Lloyd’s Registry standards and features a dramatic architectural curve that links the main deck with the upper deck. Hatches in the topsides hint at a side-loading tender garage and a fold-out superyacht beach club, although those features are yet to be confirmed by the yard.
The collaboration with Michael Leach Design is significant as the UK-based studio has previously worked on the iconic 96 metre Blohm + Vosssuperyacht Palladium and one other Feadship yacht, the 67 metre Anna.
When completed, Project 1007 will rank among the world’s largest superyachts and will steal the title of Feadship flagship from the 101.5 metre Symphony, which was launched in 2015.
