The construction of the 81m / 266ft contemporary three-masted schooner has commenced at the shipyard’s facilities in Vollenhove. This new build project for an Asian client was unveiled by the joint team of Royal Huisman, Dykstra Naval Architects, designer Mark Whiteley and Bart Kimman of Northrop & Johnson Asia at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show.
The Riviera’s summer season is well underway now. To confirm that summer is here, the Cote d’Azur is hosting a dizzying array of events that range from sports to music festivals.

Feadship has launched the 73-metre Hasna, the first Feadship built for an Australian owner.

Hasna is a true family Feadship, blending a variety of home-from-home entertainment features within a timeless sculptured exterior and a suave, beach chic interior, both created together with RWD.
