Feadship launched the 328-foot (99.95-meter) Moonrise, the largest superyacht by waterline length built in the Netherlands to date. Unveiled by the Feadship yard in Makkum, she successfully marries sensual lines with a modern masculine profile. Designed by Studio De Voogt She has long hull windows, a grey hull and a striking vertical bow.
In addition to her imposing length, Moonrise has a very impressive volume thanks to her nearly 51-foot (15.5 -meter) beam. The layout accommodates sixteen people in eight staterooms. There are also exceptionally high-end crew accommodations for up to 32 crew, bathed in natural light and designed to ensure a premium standard for those living and working on the yacht. Guests and staff alike will benefit from the huge effort expended on keeping Moonrise exceptionally quiet.
Exterior highlights include the way that the superstructure is entirely clad in glass, the helipad on the foredeck and the large beach club aft, complete with gym and wellness areas. High ceilings predominate both outdoors and in, with flush decks complementing a seamless transition to the interior. The latter features a sophisticated yet minimalistic style by Rémi Tessier Design. Twin MTU engines enable Moonrise to reach 19.5 knots and her cruising speed is 16 knots, with Quantum stabilizers ensuring a comfortable ride at all times.
Moonrise benefits from the latest thinking in terms of smooth operation and environmental responsibility. For example, exhaust gas treatment has been fitted to the main engines, in addition to the Feadship proprietary generator exhaust cleaning system. A heat recovery system installed on the generators allows Moonrise’s jacuzzi water to be warmed up using far less electrical power. And an ECO-certified system for dynamic positioning facilitates the most energy-saving generator use in this mode.
The naval architecture for Moonrise has been optimized to provide maximum comfort both underway and at anchor. Her propeller and appendages have been designed to ensure minimum noise levels underwater, reducing both the yacht’s impact as well as interior sound levels. Add in extended autonomy, the long cruising range, streamlined hull design and cutting-edge wastewater processing & storage facilities Moonrise proves to be an extremely efficient yacht.
