Halo, a new 57m Feadship superyacht

feadship-haloFeadhip, a shipyard based in the Netherlands with roots dating back to the second half of the XIX century now specializing in superyachts, launched its 57 metre Feadship Halo in a private ceremony in Kaag lake.
The short timeframe required an extensive amount of 3D modelling and enormous organizational experience. Halo’s aggressive exterior styling was created by Eidsgaard Design in close cooperation with the owner. Dark window bands in a warm grey Awlgrip Mocca unite the side deck windows. These windows are intersected by the huge silver metallic arches that run from the bridge coaming and up and aft over the sun deck, creating the sun deck roof as well as side tracks for the sun awning. The white surfaces have been simplified down to the bare minimum, with a generous curvature that creates textured reflections of the environment.
“From a quarter-front view, the signature silver arches appear to run up, over and down the aft end of the yacht,” Peder Eidsgaard explains. “As Halo drives past, however, observers will notice that the aft tip of the arch is actually turning upwards. This creates a subtle playful tail, which is an important part of the yacht’s character.”
With a cruising speed of 16 knots and a range of 5000 nautical miles, Halo has been specifically designed for world cruising. Designed for world cruising, Halo has a large sun deck, an enclosed mooring deck, a heli platform and two tender garages flanking the centreline beach club. The sun deck is exceptionally large for a 57- metre yacht, extended some five metres further forward than would normally be the case on this size of superyacht.
Further forward, Halo has an enclosed mooring deck, with hatches that open on both sides, and a helicopter platform. Aft are two large garages either side of the centreline beach club for Halo’s two custom eight-metre tenders. The tenders are launched by an innovative system of overhead beam cranes and the door of this area slides up and under the sun pad on the main deck above to open to the water. There is also room for a large selection of diving equipment.
The interior design is by Bernardi Peschard, the first superyacht project for this renowned design office. It features light oak, dark woods and lots of bronze inlays in a surprisingly modern style. All the main guest suites and the owner’s stateroom are on the main deck – offering panoramic views for all through the windows – and there is a VIP stateroom on the bridge deck with the same degree of finish as the master.
