Feadship has launched the 258-foot (78.5-meter) custom motoryacht Hampshire II for an experienced Feadship owner with a love of action and sports. Appropriately, before the launch ceremony, teams representing the owners’ guests and the yard challenged each other in a game of football on the yacht’s foredeck. The yacht’s helideck becomes an ideal spot for all kinds of games, with a net ensuring whatever ball is in play stays in the court. Indeed, from the foredeck court to the 82-foot-high crow’s nest reached via elevator, this latest addition to the Feadship fleet is well equipped for adventure. A zip wire connected to the mast and a rope beckons the truly daring to slide at breathtaking speed from the crow’s nest to the water. Redman Whiteley Dixon and Feadship’s design team incorporate great features for ocean enjoyment, including balconies and an owners’ terrace. The captain will no doubt be found often at the wing stations adjacent to the wheelhouse when arriving into port. A wealth of fine detailing includes a stylish glass panel for the nameplate, recessed in the bridge deck’s fashion plates. She just missed our cut-off for the Top 100, but will be part of the list next year.
