Netherlands. Under Cover: Feadships megayacht Anna makes a shy debut
Wednesday, 17 January 2007
Feadship has announced the launch of the 67.00-meter (219’10”) twin screw motoryacht Anna. She is the largest yacht in terms of volume ever built by the De Vries yard in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands.
This latest scion of the Feadship fleet is being kept pretty much under wraps for the time being. Only limited information is being released on hull #673, which will be completed at Feadship’s giant new facilities in Makkum.
“With her steel hull and aluminium superstructure, Anna already has a magnificent body,” explains owner's representative Julien Jouault. “But like any graceful lady, she only wants to meet her public when fully dressed. The team in Makkum will now apply the finishing touches – Anna’s makeup, you might say. I am sure the wait will be worthwhile.”
Anna was designed by Micheal Leach Design, while De Voogt Naval Architects was responsible for the naval architecture.
Builder: Feadship – Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw
Type: Twin screw motor yacht, steel hull and aluminium superstructure

Based in the Netherlands, Feadship is a cooperation between three of the most renowned names in yachting history – Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw, Royal Van Lent and De Voogt – with combined roots dating back to 1849. Feadship is recognized as the world leader in the field of custom-built motor yachts, and has continuously been at the forefront of innovations in both technology and design. An aggressive expansion program now underway will allow the organization to launch up to five yachts a year, ranging in size up to 180 meters.
