A new marvelous entry in the world of cruising, from the Feadship yacht-maker, has come to life. The brand new 257-foot Hampshire II superyacht is ready to pamper its owner with luxury, privacy and high performance.
For those born under metric units, the yacht boasts 78.5 meters of exquisiteness, including tennis, badminton or basketball indoor courts and an outdoor football field. The vessel has been presented by the beginning of 2012’s April in such a great pomp that some of the owner’s real-life friends have started to use the facilities on the yacht.
What one can see everywhere on this yacht is luxury. Premium quality wooden flooring, combined with astonishing attention to detail is what makes this decent-sized world so interesting. To give you an example of efficiency, the helipad onboard can be converted into an outdoor basketball court.
We haven’t seen many vessels fabricators yet to think of that. In addition, guests are pampered with an English style bar and lounge on the bridge deck. The yacht can accommodate up to 14 guests inside, not counting the 21 member crew. Furthermore, if you’d be a guest on this beautiful vessel and if you would seek something truly out of the ordinary, then the crow’s nest is what you’d probably choose. Accessible via an in-built elevator, some breathtaking views can be enjoyed from the spot.
Regarding performance, this rather extraordinary superyacht sports boosters up to his measures. Considering their 205,000 capacity, and their overall weight, they can steal propel the boat with a maximum speed of 16 knots. The cruise speed is limited to 12 knots, though, enough to send a good load of comfort into the guests’ hearts.
It features quite a generous autonomy, of 5,500 nautical miles. If you’re a technology enthusiast, maybe these figures could make your eyeballs pop out: twin MTU 16V4000M53R machines co-working with VTNainad Marine zero-speed stabilizers – these ensure a rather smooth and cozy ride.
All these characteristics really make it stand out of the crowd. We absolutely love this yacht – gorgeousness at its best!
