Feadship launches M/Y CID

ADVERTISEMENT

M/Y CID, an all aluminum, 114-foot (34.7m) Feadship, launched May 15. The client plans to take part in two days of sea trials in the North Sea and around the Wadden islands.

After her delivery, CID will explore the Fjords and the Mediterranean. This winter, she will reconnoitre Mexico’s west coast and spend time on the Baja California Peninsula. The yacht’s size allows it to fit into berths in shallow areas.

The yacht will carry six crew, though the owner intends to be at the helm much of the time. The fixed bimini on the flybridge is the largest in terms of length ratio ever built on a Feadship. A table there seats 16 people.
