Feadship serves up a concept that is a cut above

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

The 2022 Monaco #yacht #show will host the debut of Feadship’s latest #concept #yacht. Reflecting both the opinions of current #superyacht owners and brilliant new #design ideas from Studio De Voogt, 85-metre Slice reimagines ways to bring natural light to a yacht’s interior, integrating the interior and exterior in bold new ways.

Feadship began presenting #concept designs in 2006 to drive research and #design discussion. From X-Stream, other notable concepts followed including F-Stream, Breathe, Aeon, Royale, Choice and Pure. These deep dives into the likely expectations of the next generation of #feadship owners were all based on insightful client feedback, long brainstorming and discovery sessions, and in-depth research.

Several ideas posited by these ground-breaking concepts have seen the light of day with actual #feadship builds. The concepts also build on one another, leveraging the best ideas of #design, engineering and innovation.

The eleventh #feadship #concept, Slice, as it is known, takes the sculptural exterior philosophy of last year’s Pure Concept, lengthens and wraps it around a totally fresh interior creating a series of exciting, unique destinations for guests. The starting point was cutting open structure to bring light below in new ways to new places. A once predictable flow of spaces is abandoned in favour of a fresh approach to the onboard lifestyle. Nowhere is this more pronounced than the precedent-setting 110m2 multilevel pool deck aft. It’s like taking tomorrow’s version of a beach and exclusive open-air cabana club with you as you cruise between destinations.

Slice is more than a #design and lifestyle departure, it is also fully future-proof in terms of likely developments in clean propulsion by being, as her engineering team puts it, fuel agnostic. Regardless of what non-fossil fuels are used, the variable speed generators power Slice comfortably and efficiently to 16 knots. The system is forward thinking, anticipating more energy dense batteries and durable power-dense fuel cell solutions that may be (re)fitted when available. Ultimately, the possibility for net-zero carbon operations will be dependent on the fuel bunkered. Being flexible Slice will be ready: she is technically feasible, fully developed for immediate construction with delivery in 2027, or ready for propulsion options evolving during the next decade.

Already provoking lively discussions in Monaco, designers #tannoweeda and #chrisbottoms will both be available at the #feadship stand to explain the technologies and explore the lifestyle potential with visitors fascinated by the interactive model. For those unable to attend the #show, more details on Slice will be released soon.
