LENGTH: 288ft. (87.78m)
SHIPYARD: Feadship, Holland
The second-largest Feadship launched to date was built at the De Vries Makkum yard. De Voogt designed the exterior and Sinot Design was responsible for the interior. Feadship kept the project under wraps and the summer launch was very discreet, but you can’t keep such a vessel secret for long. Interest has been growing and speculations have already attributed ownership of this yacht to Larry Ellison, who sold his share of his former yacht Rising Sun to David Geffen. Clues leading to this conclusion include Ellison’s fondness for all things Japanese and the fact that the design of the superstructure is reminiscent of the Jon Bannenberg-designed Rising Sun. If that is the case, Musashi will likely turn up in San Francisco for the 2013 America’s Cup, a competition Ellison, Oracle founder and avid sailing competitor, finally won in 2009.
