Feadship launches Kiss

Feadship has launched the 152-foot (46.4m) M/Y Kiss.

“With yachts like Como and Kiss, we are effectively building a sporty-type boat around our average size of over 15 years ago, but now with all the know-how and intelligence Feadship has developed,” said Feadship director Henk de Vries. “This facilitates a clever approach to high-end production, one which remains entirely custom while keeping the costs of a Feadship of this size within the bounds of reason.

“The owner of Kiss required a more conventional speed of 16 knots (Como is 19), so she has a different power plant,” he said. “And while Como is a sports boat with an open top deck, Kiss has a complete master penthouse on the upper deck. This obviously added both volume and weight to the yacht, hence requiring a revised lines plan. Make no mistake, these are two different Feadships.”

Kiss has a metallic black hull with a red stripe on the waterline. A large bulwark window measures 6.5 metres in width, and the owner’s quarters take over a complete deck. The interior is by Redman Whiteley Dixon. It can accommodate eight guests and eight crew, plus a captain’s cabin.
