MADAME GU 99m private Super Yacht by Feadship
One of the largest yachts built in the Netherlands to date, the outstanding 99m (325’) Feadship motor yacht MADAME GU (Project DREAM – hull 1004) was built as the fourth Feadship XL large custom series vessel in 2013. Luxury mega yacht MADAME GU features naval architecture by De Voogt Naval Architects, while her exterior as well as interior design is by Andrew Winch.
Feadship is undoubtedly, one of the top luxury yacht builders in the world, constructing truly custom made Feadship super yachts.
More than four years in the making, project name ‘Dream’ left the massive building hal. She is an elegant and striking tribute to her visionary owner, the talented design team of Andrew Winch and the hundreds of Feadship staff who built her.
Feadship has enabled its craftsmen to construct a slender lightweight vessel that, despite her 99-metre length, can attain a speed well over 24 knots.
Capitalizing on Feadship’s engineering experience on motor yachts Predator and Tango, she is capable of such speeds thanks to her highly efficient hull form and quadruple engines driving controllable pitch propellers swift and efficiently.
The project is also a prime example of Feadship’s unrivalled ability to build super yachts exactly according to client specifications – in this case a striking and sleek concept presented by AWD, resulting in a totally custom creation. Says marketing manager Francis Vermeer: “Because we start every project afresh and are not building from an existing platform,all things are possible for a Feadship owner. It’s all part of the experience that makes creating a Feadship such fun for our clients.”
Experience of a different kind underpinned some of the other special requests for this latest member of the Feadship fleet.
Leveraging on the expertise accrued on 81-metre Air, launched in 2011, and the fully enclosed helicopter hangar which was developed for 86-metre Ecstasea from 2004, project name ‘Dream’ is the second Feadship to feature such a certified helicopter storage system.
