Superyachts are in such high demand that this shipyard has already started work on a $180 million vessel scheduled for delivery in November 2024, even though no owner has been finalized

This is the story of a superyacht. It is under construction and called Feadship Project 825. The ship that’s currently taking shape at the Dutch yard’s Royal Van Lent facility in the Netherlands also has a delivery date in place, the November of 2024. Sounds run-of-the-mill, right? Interestingly, the twist here is that there is no owner. It brings forth a chance for a wealthy billionaire or billionairess to frog jump the line and get hands on a superyacht-in-waiting in less than half the time of a new order.

Dan Snyder the owner of the Washington Commanders football team worked extensively with Feadship for the Lady S superyacht. The sports billionaire has a two-deck IMAX theater and a 201 inch television installed onboard.

Not only is this beneficial for both parties, but it also brings a new wave in the yachting industry where several heads come together with tons of opinions to customize an extensive yacht. Yes, megayachts are expensive assets, and every nook and corner must be to the owner’s liking. Still, not every owner must be interested in giving inputs on coffee tables, the size of the cabins, or the material of the decks.

Project 825.

Sometimes, it’s best to let the experts do their jobs and reap the benefits of your investment sans the stress. In the case of Project 825, Studio De Voogt has released renderings that showcase a captivating dual-toned boat that would task interested parties with the impossible task of finding flaws in the design. Listed below is a detailed description of Project 825-

His 197-foot vessel is also the world's first to have a dedicated area for the dog to 'relieve' itself.

The austere Project 825-
Spanning 245 feet with metal railings, and a volume of 1,750GT spread across four decks, the ship is a stellar example of experts in action! Parisian studio Gilles & Boissier, designers behind the famed Baccarat Hotel in New York City, is responsible for the lush interiors with earth-toned, lime-washed grained wood and stone surfaces.

The beach club.

Water babies have a glass-bottomed pool to look forward to on the main deck aft. Additionally, hot tubs, one on the bridge deck and a private one for the owner in his private saloon make for enticing amenities.

The large yacht accommodates 12 guests across six staterooms. The owner’s suite is a suave-looking area with a study, walk-in closet, private terrace, a Jacuzzi, and lounging sections. The most excellent aspect is a touch-and-go helipad so the tycoon can land in the lap of luxury without wasting any time.

The owner’s deck lounge.

The main saloon with a formal dining area is enveloped by sliding glass doors on three sides, welcoming ample natural light.

Project 825 also features a games room, massage room, gym, and a sprawling lower deck beach club. The motoryacht is powered by twin MTU diesel engines with a top speed of 15.6 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots. Central Agent, Burgess is asking for nearly $182 million for the ship.

Sakura Yacht by Feadship-
Another superlative superyacht from the Dutch yard that’s for sale without a finalized owner is the 229 feet Sakura. Named after a Japanese flowering cherry tree, Sakura is a family yacht combining Eastern minimalism and Scandinavian warmth. Akin to Project 825, Sakura’s interior design is also done by Studio De Voogt. The ship sleeps 14 guests in seven well-designed cabins. Amenities onboard Sakura include a gym, steam room, sauna, or massage room. Feadship has 16 ongoing projects,and two so far look like they belong to the same family, with minor differences. For a discerning owner with a vision, the boats may not appeal as they certainly lack a distinctive personality.
