With exterior design by Jan Schaffers of Studio De Voogt and interior styling by Rémi Tessier, the totality of Bliss benefits from complete collaboration with the owner.
After years of fine-tuning, engineering, and planning, the skilled craftspeople at Feadship in Makkum, the result is a pure custom yacht which fulfills the high expectations of quality and performance for an active family that likes to explore the world.
The journey of learning, designing, and building has been thoroughly enjoyable for the owner and his team. “The experienced members of the project team at Feadship in Makkum led by project manager Albert Abma have always taken the extra steps needed to achieve an excellent result,” says Ron Kleverlaan, owner’s representative.
“Feadship is renowned for offering a unique experience to owners who wish to become personally involved and, in this case, the client embraced every opportunity to play a role. He also thoroughly enjoyed meeting the craftspeople and learning about our processes at the yard. Bliss really is a Feadship built with as well as for her owner,” says Albert Abma.
The yacht has state-of-the-art technology and engineering covering all onboard systems. Advanced security and life-safety systems have been discretely incorporated and De Voogt Naval Architects has been heavily involved in the design and engineering of the hybrid propulsion system to enable the yacht to sail in diesel-electric mode. Exceptionally flexible in terms of its ultra-efficient energy consumption and offering major fuel savings, this package helps to protect the environment and provides premium comfort for all who step aboard.
The high ceilings onboard give the yacht a spacious feel with nine luxurious guest cabins, large lounges, and an extensive gym and wellness area. Combined with expansive exterior deck areas, a large pool, and a commercially certified helideck which converts into a full sports and games deck, Bliss is prepared for family fun.
Bliss is also built for serious exploration. She is fully equipped and certified to cruise Polar regions, anchor in deep water, or keep position with her dynamic positioning system. Bliss sails with a top speed of 17 knots and has a range of 6000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots.
