Boarding the Feadship Motor Yacht Vanish at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, inspiration for the name becomes readily apparent. Every care dissolves, every wish fulfills, and every luxury surrounds as guests step on board the 66.25-meter/217’4″ yacht. Interior design and exterior styling by Peder Eidsgaard’s London team compliments naval architecture by Feadship de Voogt’s fine hand in this fully custom build by Feadship launched from Kaag island.
A nautilus shell inspired freestanding stair spanning three decks is wrapped in glass, presenting a breathtaking view from multiple angles. With the appearance of marble, the meticulously-painted and authentically executed surface offers benefits beyond natural stone.
The owner’s suite braces with fresh sea air via a retractable starboard flush deck balcony so simple to operate that the owner can control it himself, even when motoring slowly. Electrically-controlled sliding doors allow full access or full protection, whichever weather or whim command. Dual baths, spacious lounge, and pleasing views are all highlighted by clean, contemporary design and dramatic dark woods against creamy furnishings quietly expressing a refined color palette splashed with blues.
Whether guests approach the yacht through the uniquely stepped transom or the boarding platform on the starboard side, the scale and design are both welcoming and user-friendly. Eliminating the massive feel given by many large yachts through innovative style, guests instantly experience the comfort and serenity Vanish extends.
Distinguished from afar by her balance of horizontal grillwork and vertical windows amid full height glazing, Vanish nods to tradition with substantial dark wooden rail caps that immediately identify and dignify.
With a maximum speed of 17.5 knots, Vanish can cruise for 5200 nm at 12 knots, carrying 12 guests in 6 cabins served by 17 crew. The 3.45-meter/11’4″ draft and 11.80-meter/38’9″ beam illustrate spacious full beam attributes and clever engineering displayed by the steel hull and aluminum superstructure. Embracing an active lifestyle, Vanish offers a pool in addition to a sun deck spa for 6, two touch-and-go helipads, a gym, sauna, massage room, and expansive full-height windows.
An outdoor cinema, massage room, beauty salon, and spacious beach club sauna should serve to ease any remaining cares guests haven’t shed upon boarding. The expansive main deck VIP suite is graced with its own lounge area, which can be separated into two suites. Heavily insulated barriers/bladders and separate baths ensure privacy for both spaces. This highly anticipated launch in 2016 did not disappoint. In true Feadship tradition, she exhibits flawless quality in every finely-crafted detail, enabling the owner and his family to truly disappear in the lap of luxury and safety provided by a Feadship.
