43: Fountainhead

You are not seeing double. This is indeed a new yacht, which looks very closely related to Musashi (already on our list last year). Mum is the word on this, one of the latest yachts built at Feadship. De Vries delivered the yacht in July 2011, actually the same month that Musashi left the Makkum yard.

SHIPYARD: Feadship, Holland

You are not seeing double. This is indeed a new yacht, which looks very closely related to Musashi (already on our 2011 list). Mum is the word on this, one of the latest yachts built at Feadship. De Vries delivered the yacht in July 2011, actually the same month that Musashi left the Makkum yard. Feadship released no information whatsoever. These apparent sisterships are the largest yachts to launch at Feadship to date. Fountainhead has cruised extensively since her launch last summer. She is distinctive with her superstructure full of windows and a towering mast supporting multiple domes. She was spotted in Fort Lauderdale in winter 2012. As for clues to ownership, the yacht shares her name with a novel by Ayn Rand, widely cited as an American self-made-man’s favorite book.
