SAKURA features 14 staterooms, including a grand master suite located on the pilothouse with large wrap around windows and private side deck. The remaining six cabins consist of two VIP cabins, and four guest cabins. She can also accommodate 18 crewmembers in comfortable crew quarters. She sports an exterior yacht design by Studio De Voogt, with naval architecture by Azure Yacht Design and Naval Architecture with FM – Architettura d’interni completing the interiors.
Maarten Janssen, Feadship’s Sales Director shares, “From the moment we released information about [SAKURA] last May there were several clients who jumped at the opportunity, including her new owner. He was attracted by the relatively short delivery time and the opportunity to bypass the waiting list. He loved the exterior and interior design, and the yacht totally fit what he was looking for in terms of layout for family use. A perfect fit, in other words.”
Introducing the buyer, Richard Lambert, Head of Sales at Burgess comments, “It has been a pleasure to have worked hand in hand with the new owner and Feadship for project [SAKURA] and we are looking forward to a continued close collaboration for the completion of this stunning new build project.”
The 235ft (71.75m) diesel-electric SAKURA is on track for delivery to her new owner in May 2025.
