Feadship launches Larisa


Feadship has launched the 189-foot (57.6m) M/Y Larisa.

Built for an experienced owner, the yacht features a classic exterior with a range of modern features.

The interior comes from the boards of Bannenberg & Rowell Design that took in influences from Greece, Italy, the Riviera and the Byzantine Empire. There is a circular dining area on the bridge deck aft. Round doors to the aft deck slide open, allowing guests the choice of al fresco dining.

Larisa features a first for Feadship: The inboard balcony in the owners’ lounge on the main deck is accessible without the assistance of crew via push-button controlled doors.

The contract for Larisa was the first new order signed after the beginning of the financial crisis.

“A Feadship is not just a luxury product; it also has to add up financially,” said Feadship director Henk de Vries. “The smart and efficient negotiating skills of Will Christie at Y.CO played an important role in bringing this project to fruition at a crucial time for the industry.”

“It has long been an ambition of mine to be involved with a build at Feadship,” Capt. James Verity said at the christening ceremony. “Over the past three years I have seen that the real Feadship magic occurs on the shop floor – the quality of workmanship, the attention to detail and the pride that goes into the work here is unmatched, and this is why Feadship is at the very top of modern yacht building today.”

The yacht will run with a crew of as many as 14.
