This Feadship 65m Dutch built motor yacht PESTIFER had her naval architecture completed by De Voogt Naval Architects whilst Clifford Denn was responsible for her exterior design. Her lavish interior design by François Zuretti, with input from the owners, “harks back to the glory days of yachting with a 21st-century execution.”
M/Y PESTIFER is to provide accommodation for eight guests along with a sizeable crew list of around 24.
The Feadship hull number 680 was ordered by an experienced yacht owner to upgrade his current motor yacht. The superyacht’s gray covered launching coat will be replaced with a new colour after the yacht’s sea trails. She will then be completed and for delivery to her new owner.
The yacht’s owners required that the building of this new yacht take three years from initial contact to full completion. This meant well organised and close coordination between all the important parties. They included the yacht’s naval architects and designers, De Voogt Naval Architects, Clifford Denn, and François Zuretti as well as the owner’s team of Neil Cheston and John Bilesky, together with project manager Rob de Vries.
