Feadship has an unrivalled pedigree in the superyacht market and a history that goes back to 1849. Although the Dutch experts were building large yachts for Middle Eastern and European royalty in the 1930s, many maritime historians point to the 1951 New York Boat Show as the defining moment in the Feadship success story. This was the first time that Feadship had displayed its yachts to the American public, which expressed immediate admiration for the quality and craftsmanship. More than half of the 250 Feadships launched have since been created for sophisticated owners in the United States. And now, with the arrival of the luxury yacht Helix in China, Feadship is set to embark on a new phase in superyacht history.

“Each Feadship is totally unique and each reflects our commitment to set new standards in terms of perfect craftsmanship and superior technology,” comments Feadship director Dick van Lent, who will be among the senior Feadship managers accompanying Helix on this Asian tour. “Feadships are seen as the benchmark for the entire superyacht industry and we are convinced that the time is right to personally introduce UHNWIs in China with the ultimate yachting lifestyle.”

The 45m superyacht Helix will be on tour in Asia from 18 March through 29 April: The vessel will be staying at the Gold Coast Marina in Hong Kong from March 18 to 31. She will then head for the third Hainan Rendezvous, which is being held at the Visun Royal Yacht Club from April 5 to 8.

The Helix yacht will also attend the Singapore yacht show from April 27 to 29.

Helix will showcase to the public how Feadship is able to combine a timeless design and fine detailing with a classic bow to ensure the most comfortable of seagoing performances. Invited guests and potential clients will also be given a personal tour of an interior that synthesises light-fabric-covered walls in mahogany wooden frames with contrasting materials and tasteful furniture.

With four suites and a master stateroom on the main deck, all guests enjoy phenomenal views from their cabins. The Helix yacht also has a wealth of outdoor entertainment and dining options, reflecting a beach house on the water philosophy.

“Helix is an exceptionally refined superyacht that is sure to hold her value,” adds Van Lent. “And, like all Feadships, the building experience was great fun for all concerned. Feadship representatives have visited the Far East on a number of occasions and we have built several Feadships for owners from this region. But to now have the opportunity to present a brand-new Feadship to a dedicated Chinese audience is a landmark moment and there is a sense of history being made.”
