The bigger the luxury yacht the better it is! This mantra holds true in all cases and is made evident by the exceptionally sleek and relatively long design of the Project 3073 by Feadship – a Dutch company that has been in the helm of yacht building for a long time with elitism in custom designs built from scratch, just like this one.
The brainchild of Feadship CEO Henk de Vries and the company’s design head Tanno Weeda, the 207-feet (63 meters) Project 3073 was initially designed for a client with the desire for a sleek and sporty megayacht. The result is a seriously elegant all-aluminum sports yacht with sleek lines exuding speed and length. This conceptual yacht exhibits an extended deck, inspired by the long bonnet of the Jaguar E-Type, and features a full-sized glass-bottomed pool right above the owner’s stateroom. It adds to the ambiance and allows light to penetrate right through its floor into the room below. The allure is further enhanced by the open connection between the bridge deck wheelhouse and the main deck saloon – a visionary idea, Feadship believes should see the light of day.
The powerful yacht doesn’t just endure resemblance to a sports car – it in fact can run like one – achieving speeds of around 30 knots using a novel propulsion system that deploys water jets instead of propellers. For a perspective, an ultra-efficient electric equivalent can race at 20+ knots. You can watch de Vries and Weeda discussing the development process behind a potential Feadship super sports megayacht in the video below. A sleek yacht that takes inspiration from luxury cars sounds worthy for an owner who already owns two Mangusta superyachts – something so unique and interesting that it redefines luxury yachts for this generation!
