Wednesday, August 16, the Feadship Royal Van Lent shipyard launched HELIX, the fifth hull in the F45 series. The interiors on this magnificent yacht feature an appropriately nautical theme with an air of the traditional classic yacht updated to suit a contemporary European aesthetic. The modern mix of light fabric covered walls in rich mahogany wooden frames and highly contrasting textiles and materials adds exciting visual interest. Designed by De Voogt Naval Architects and Sinot Yacht Design, HELIX is a superb example of the ingenuity, sophistication, and innovative technology that has long been synonymous with the brand. Notable features include a non-traditional layout that locates the guest staterooms and the master suite on the main deck for extraordinary views from every compartment. HELIX will cruise to the Mediterranean in time to make her public debut at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show, held from September 21 to 24. The Feadship stand is number QT3 is on the central T-Jetty. Here visitors can view the 2011 Feadship Future Concept Model that incorporates new eco-conscious ideology with more emphasis on leisure and less on formality of space. Greater speeds, reduced fuel consumption, lighter interiors, higher ceilings, more watersports and new-generation technologies and design are the end product of cumulative research.
