Feaship's Hampshire II is seen for the first time in daylight Feaship's Hampshire II is seen for the first time in daylight

Having been christened by her owners during an elaborate ceremony in April, the brand-new custom Feadship Hampshire II has now left the construction hall. This timeless 78.50-metre motoryacht made an imposing impression as the doors of the shed were opened and both the workforce and watching crowds got to see this phenomenal Feadship for the first time in daylight. After being carefully launched, and with the addition of her mast construction, Hampshire II looked truly resplendent.

Built for an experienced Feadship client who has a genuine passion for action and sports, this latest addition to the global Feadship fleet sets new standards in terms of her facilities and craftsmanship. Hampshire II is full of adventure, reflecting her owner’s rich involvement in a project which he described as a tremendous and fun experience. The helicopter landing platform, for example, can be transformed into a playing field for basketball, tennis, baseball, badminton and football, with a giant net around the deck to ensure continuity of the games.

This is one of many unusual features onboard this bespoke Feadship, the split-level design of which maximizes the volume and outdoor space. On the sundeck, for instance, a crow's nest placed atop the mast is reached by a two-person elevator and offers panoramic views high above the water. For the truly adventurous, a zip wire is connected to the mast to which one can tie a rope and slide at breathtaking speed from the crow's nest down to the water.

Hampshire II also has a phenomenal beach club with two platforms that open up either side of the yacht in addition to the swim platform at the transom. A swimming ladder descends from the stern hydraulically while the beach club itself has been finished in a driftwood style. The whole area is very well incorporated with the deck above, which includes a skylight surrounded by seating.

The contemporary overall design by Redman Whitely Dixon and Feadship incorporates balconies on either side: Seating terraces for the owners and wing stations adjacent to the wheelhouse. There is a wealth of fine detailing in the design, including the nameplate on the glass panel in the recessed part of the bridge deck fashion plates.
