Feadship has launched the 57m M/Y Halo after being in build for 33 months. Her owner had chartered the Feadship M/Y Helix before commissioning a new Feadship.
The exterior — which Feadship called “radical” in a release — was styled by Eidsgaard Design and includes dark window bands in a grey Awlgrip Mocca connecting the side deck windows. These windows are intersected by the silver metallic arches that run from the bridge coaming up and aft over the sun deck. The white surfaces have been simplified down to the bare minimum, with a generous curvature that creates textured reflections of the environment.
With a cruising speed of 16 knots and a range of 5,000nm, M/Y Halo was designed for world cruising.
It has an enclosed mooring deck, with hatches that open on both sides, and a helicopter platform. Aft are two garages either side of the beach club for Halo’s two custom 8m tenders, which are launched by overhead beam cranes.
The interior design is by Bernardi Peschard, the first superyacht project for this design office. It features light oak, dark woods and lots of bronze inlays in a modern style. All the main guest suites and the owner’s stateroom are on the main deck; a VIP stateroom is on the bridge deck. The wheelhouse has seven widescreens and a designer interior that reflects “the large amount of time the owner anticipates spending in this area,” according to the release.
