Motoryacht Sea Owl launches

Jun 14, 2013 by Guest Writer

The 203-foot (62m) Feadship M/Y Sea Owl has left the shed and began sea trials in early June; it is expected to launch officially this month.


The yacht has a jade mist green hull and oyster white superstructure on an Andrew Winch design with “the most customized interior ever seen on a Feadship,” according to a statement from the yard.


The owners included onboard a sophisticated security system that both yard and owner’s team regard as possibly the most elaborate ever built into a yacht.


Capt. John Watson has spent the past year at the yard and described the build as “an enlightening and extraordinarily professional experience.”


There are two dedicated children’s cabins on board as well as the owners’ stateroom and three guest suites. The yacht also can carry 18 crew in eight cabins and a nanny’s cabin.
