Feadship: Hybrid Electric Project 1012 prepares for sea trials

Project 1012 has emerged from the construction shed at Feadship's Makkum facility and is now entering the fitting-out phase in preparation for sea trials prior to delivery. Significantly, this is the first Feadship vessel to achieve full Hybrid Electric Class notation.

Designed by Sinot and the owner's design office, with naval architecture by Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects, Project 1012 was conceived for a repeat Feadship owner who brought extensive yachting experience and specific requests to the custom project. The exterior styling was crafted with meticulous input from the owner, resulting in a crisply chamfered 91.80-meter yacht with a modern-classic personality, complemented by a traditional flared bow. Despite its considerable volume, the interior features cozy, family-oriented spaces utilizing natural materials and finishes.

A key motivation for the owner in building this yacht was the desire for a more spacious beach club. Project 1012's beach club occupies a full quarter of the lower deck's length, featuring a large fixed stern platform and two fold-down platforms, creating 165 square meters of water-level lounging space.

The yacht also boasts a side-loading garage between the engine room and beach club, housing two 10-meter tenders, a ski boat, and various water toys. The forward section includes the galley, crew mess, and well-appointed crew accommodations.

The main deck aft features a large pool and an open-air lounge shaded by the deckhead overhang, with luxurious guest suites and staff cabins located forward. The master stateroom, family lounge, and wellness area are situated on the upper decks, while the sundeck offers an observation point with a forward-facing sofa and sun loungers. The aft deck stores two rescue tenders.

Project 1012's propulsion and energy management systems incorporate advanced Feadship technology. The yacht carries full Hybrid Electric Class notation, featuring two main engines with shaft-driven fixed pitch propellers, 560kW PTO/PTI electric motors, and a 1MW Li-ion battery bank. This system allows for conventional diesel propulsion, electric motor operation as shaft generators, and low-speed navigation powered by generators or batteries.

Albert Abma, Feadship's project manager, praised the collaborative effort: "Working with the experienced owner, designers, and owner’s team has been a professional pleasure. Gathering the operational experience of the owner’s team with the yard’s building experience has resulted in this modern-classic, state-of-the-art, and fully custom new Feadship."
