Dutch shipyard Feadship has launched 221ft (67.4m) Project 823 following her construction at the Kaag shipyard. Now moving out of the construction hall, she will receive her final outfitting before heading for sea trials later this year.

With a complete design done by the team’s in-house designers, Project 823 features hull engineering completed by Azure Naval Architects, with exterior and interior design by Studio De Voogt.
Featuring bold lines that the Feadship team is known for, Project 823 comes complete with chiseled contours and dark horizontal strip windows giving a complementary contrast to her sleek white exterior. “We aimed to focus on the length of the yacht by creating uninterrupted lines, for instance in the widebody windows and the superstructure. Together this creates a very unique character,” shared Jan Schaffers, senior designer at Studio De Voogt.
Custom built and designed for an experienced yacht owner, the interior yacht layout was tailored to his family’s specific needs and provides ensuite accommodation for ten guests in three lower deck cabins, one VIP suite on the bridge deck, and a master stateroom on the main deck forward.
The interior yacht design is simple yet sophisticated, based on natural tones, light wood veneers and organic forms for a tasteful yet warm welcome when you step onboard. An elevator is available to transport guests from the lower deck all the way to the large sundeck – a highlight of the design and a focal point for family life onboard.
The central lounge area is protected from the wind by a glass windbreak and from the sun by the hardtop, but wide side windows and nine skylights in the roof ensure you’ll never miss a view, while offering an abundance of natural light to pour in. Uniquely, in an effort to free up space for a large wellness area and gym on the lower deck, tender stowage can be found behind the high bulwarks on the foredeck.
Feadship shares, that “careful attention has been paid also to the crew quarters and service areas with additional fridge-freezer storage, a large laundry room and extra dry storage on the tank deck.”
Project 823 marks the first launch for Feadship in 2023, with delivery to her owner set for later this year.
