Dutch superyacht manufacturer Feadship has unveiled its latest concept yacht Slice at the Monaco Yacht Show.
Slice is 85 meters long and represents the eleventh concept of the Feadship company. This impressive work of designer Studio de Voogt was presented at the Monaco Yacht Show and what sets Slice apart is that it breaks almost every mold typical of luxury yachts we've had the chance to see so far.
Slice does not flaunt long corridors, numerous cabins, excessive decor or dark interiors. Ingenious and glamorous, a long strip of glass stretches from bow to stern and guarantees an abundance of natural light that illuminates several decks.
It also has several impressive areas, such as a spacious and well-designed 70 square meter atrium, a 10 meter multi-level swimming pool and an inviting beach club with an open-air cabana overlooking the open sea.
It is immediately noticeable that the interiors feature only a neutral color palette with a range of textures, metals and finishes. Use of wooden surfaces is completely avoided, as Feadship demanded that teak should not be used. Slice, therefore, is a stunning masterpiece full of marble, onyx and shiny metals.
The layout is free of narrow, boxy rooms and instead is open and airy. Guest cabins can accommodate up to 20 guests and are served by 24 crew members. The owners enjoy a spacious suite with facilities such as a private terrace and a small pool. With an estimated top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 11 knots, Slice may become a reality as early as 2027.
Does a billionaire with deep pockets want to buy this superyacht? Designer Marco van Ham said: "We already have samples of all the materials and everything, we really devoted ourselves to this concept and made sure that everything is possible here. If someone orders this yacht tomorrow, I can make the technical drawings and we can start right away."
