Feadship launched its latest73-metre motoryacht, known as hull 813 and christened Hasna, at its facility on Kaag Island. The yacht was custom designed for her experienced Australian owner by RWD.
Charlie Baker, project manager at RWD so presented the project: “The brief was to create a timeless exterior profile with lots of subtle details, many of which are inspired by an automotive aesthetic. Hasna’s profile has an understated elegance interrupted by standout features such as the giant swimming pool on the aft deck with its infinity waterfall and curved glass sections. The brief also extended to two beautifully crafted tenders.”
RWD was asked to design a yacht that would suit the owner’s family lifestyle, providing accommodation for 12 guests. The studio did its best to keep areas spacious, uncluttered, and easily navigable.
Hasna’s layout has been arranged in a unique way, quite uncommon in yachts this size: in order to offer guests direct access to the full beam beach deck, the engine room has been moved forward of the lower-deck guest cabins leaving an uninterrupted passage to this area. The beach deck opens up on either side of the hull via large balcony doors.
The main deck feature an infinity swimming pool stretching eight metres in length. Another amenity included onboard is a private cinema located on the main deck.
The sundeck, with the inter section’s sliding doors ajar, can become a 25-metre-long entertainment deck equipped with barbeque, three-metre Jacuzzi and sunpads.
According to RWD’s Head of Interior Design, Jack Canning, “the interior scheme works in harmony with the exterior living spaces, an honest and natural palette of finishes creates the perfect background for small embellishments of opulent materials and art to stand out from.”
Most of the interior walls are whitewashed oak, distinguished by inserts and accents of stained walnut, linen, and cotton fabrics. The walls also incorporate bronze detailing. Many other materials were used across the yacht, such as mother-of-pearl, dark teak, cedar, marble, metal inserts, leather, and five different fabrics.
In the master suite, which includes double dressing rooms and bathrooms and which is located on the main deck, the owner requested smoked-eucalyptus trim to reflect a connection with his Australian heritage. On the deck below are four staterooms for guests, with another on the bridge deck.
Hasna also provides generous accommodation for 12 crew across six cabins, including cabins for the captain and chef, and even a butler’s cabin.
Powered by twin MTUs, Hasna has a top speed of 16 knots, and cruise speed of 14 knots. The yacht’s transoceanic range is 5,500 nautical miles at 12 knots.
“The owner has been visiting boat shows for twenty-plus years leading up to this moment,” concludes Hasna’s captain Steve Barker. “Having owned and chartered other yachts, he ultimately chose Feadship for his first large build based on a conviction that quality and value for money are paramount. He was not disappointed: the craftsmanship and attention to detail is outstanding and a testament to the men and women involved. The owner sees Feadship as the pinnacle of custom yacht building – and my experiences here during the build have confirmed that.”
