Superyacht Halo launched by Feadship

New Feadship Superyacht HALO Launched to Owner's Praise

Feadship, the Dutch superyacht masters, have unveiled their latest creation.  In a private ceremony held at their Kaag yard in Holland the 57-metre Motor Yacht HALO (ex Feadship Project 810) was launched to the delight of her new owner.

There were gasps of admiration among the onlookers as the stunning motor yacht Halo came into the light for the first time. The radical exterior styling by Eidsgaard Design is a fusion of modern design and classic Feadship styling cues and was created by the British design studio in close cooperation with the owner. M/Y Halo features dark window bands in a warm grey Awlgrip Mocca unite the side deck windows.

As can been seen in the photos above these windows are intersected by the huge silver metallic arches that run from the bridge coaming and up and aft over the sun deck, creating the sun deck roof as well as side tracks for the sun awning. The white surfaces have been simplified down to the bare minimum, with a generous curvature that creates textured reflections of the environment.

“As Halo drives past, however, observers will notice that the aft tip of the arch is actually turning upwards. This creates a subtle playful tail, which is an important part of the yacht’s character.”

From a quarter-front view, the signature silver arches appear to run up, over and down the aft end of the yacht,” Peder Eidsgaard explains. “As Halo drives past, however, observers will notice that the aft tip of the arch is actually turning upwards. This creates a subtle playful tail, which is an important part of the yacht’s character.”

With a cruising speed of 16 knots and a range of 5,000 nautical miles, Halo has been specifically designed for world cruising. And the owner will certainly enjoy the outdoor life with family and friends thanks to a vast array of bespoke features. The sun deck, for example, is exceptionally large for a 57-metre yacht, extended some five metres further forward than would normally be the case on this size of superyacht. The dark grey coloured custom Jacuzzi stands out visually, and can be easily covered by an innovative carbon fibre sun awning built into the canopy that slides out electrically.

Further forward, Halo has an enclosed mooring deck, with hatches that open on both sides, and a helicopter platform. Aft are two large garages either side of the centreline beach club for Halo’s two custom eight-metre tenders. The tenders are launched by an innovative system of overhead beam cranes and the door of this area slides up and under the sun pad on the main deck above to open to the water. There is also room for a large selection of diving equipment including 28 bottles, allowing the owner to enjoy a beloved hobby.

The interior design is by Bernardi Peschard, the first superyacht project for this renowned design office. It features light oak, dark woods and lots of bronze inlays in a surprisingly modern style. All the main guest suites and the owner’s stateroom are on the main deck – offering panoramic views for all through the windows – and there is a VIP stateroom on the bridge deck with the same degree of finish as the master. The wheelhouse is highly specified with seven widescreens and a designer interior that reflects the large amount of time the owner anticipates spending in this area.

It is believed that motor yacht Halo will be delivered to her new owner later this year.  To date it has not been confirmed if M/Y Halo will join the yacht charter fleet, in the meantime take a look at the entire list of Feadship yachts for charter.
