Project 1011 has been kept under wraps for the duration of its build – until now. Dutch superyacht company, Feadship has released images of 336ft (103m) Project 1011 leaving her construction shed at the team’s Makkum facilities. Her fitting will continue in preparation for sea trials in the North Sea prior to delivery to her owner.

With exterior and interior yacht design by Sinot Architecture & design and naval architecture by Azure Yacht Design, Project 1011 features sharp and clean exterior lines with a vertical bow and distinctive profile.
Noticeable features include 1,100 sqm of glass spanning the exterior with 20 sliding doors and 12 glass windbreaks. A swimming pool the full height of the main deck, a total of four hot tubs, helicopter hangar under the forward helipad, eight hull doors with the largest tender garage onboard any Feadship, and towering interior glass staircase and elevator are also standout features of this iconic project.
Built for a repeat, experienced owner, the completion of Project 1011 featured plenty of involvement from the owner with the build and yacht design team.
Feadship Director / CEO, Henk de Vries shares, “As a repeat client and Feadship fan who has built his own yachts in the past, the client had a very clear idea of what we are capable of and pushed the boundaries in terms of design and engineering. He wanted to be part of the team, which ordinarily is something we try to avoid, but he was fully prepared to collaborate, and our working relationship ended up being both friendly and fun!”
With a detailed and challenging brief from the owner, Project 1011 has resulted in a “masterclass in space planning and rule exploration” including living space and amenities on his previous 6,000GT but in a design of half the volume for greater access into shallow harbors and anchorages. The engine room is also built over one deck (instead of the usual two on a yacht of this size), allowing more interior volume for guest use. This yacht design feature is now being used on another Feadship project currently under build in Makkum.
Upon completing the finishing touches, Project 1011 will head out on sea trials.
