The cabin is adjoined by a spacious bathroom with a large real bathtub in a marble pedestal and a dressing room with mirrored cabinet doors and a dressing table.

Feadship delivers 77m superyacht Syzygy 818 in Monaco 

The recently launched 77-metre Feadship Syzygy 818 has been delivered to her owner in Monaco ahead of the Monaco Yacht Show 2019. The delivery takes place after successful sea trials in the North Sea.

The superyacht was launched by the Dutch builder as Project 818 at the facility in Kaag in June. She has been later transported through the countryside up to the North Sea.

The 818 in the name of the superyacht stands for”prosperous” in Chinese numerology, with the owner’s birthday on August 18 mirroring the significance of the numbers, revealed the yard.

The word “syzygy” meanwhile is used in astrology to reference a rare event in which three or more celestial bodies line up, such as a new moon or lunar eclipse.

Apart from that, still very little information has been revealed on the three-deck vessel so far. It is known, that Nordic designer Jarkko Jämsén has been responsible for her sleek exteriors, while Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design has created her interior outfitting.

With a beam of 11 metres, Syzygy 818 features a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. Her delivery will take place later this year.

Adventure Sailing Holidays Around the World

The wind rushing through your hair, the ocean breeze filling your lungs and your sights fixed on the distant horizon, full of possibility – adventure sailing holidays provide really refreshing antidotes to life’s routines. Exploring the world by sea is a pastime mankind has relished for thousands of years, discovering new and untouched corners of the globe, experiencing different cultures and collecting incredible memories along the way.

Adventure Sailing Holidays: Alaska

When it comes to adventure sailing holidays, there is nowhere quite like Alaska. This most northerly US state is a dream come true for intrepid explorers who are in search of remote, unpopulated shores, dramatic seascapes, ocean views and untouched coastlines. Explorer yachts for charter to Alaska can take you on a magical voyage through towering glaciers, incredible fjords and stunning bays, abundant with magnificent wildlife from eagles to humpback whales. Whilst travels by land can allow you to see some of the sights of your desired destination, exploring by private yacht is another experience entirely, allowing you to completely immerse yourself in your new surroundings and decide your own path.

Adventure Sailing Holidays: Antarctica

Visiting the South Pole is a truly once in a lifetime experience. The world’s most southerly continent is unpopulated due to its extreme icy climate; however, this remote and beautiful destination is accessible in the right vessel. An explorer yacht charter can take you to even the most difficult to access destinations – not only in style but in safety and comfort. When travelling great distances in potentially hostile weather conditions it is vital to be properly equipped – an adventure yacht kitted out with specially designed, state of the art navigation and communication equipment along with extra water and energy storage capacity is the best way to discover the frozen world of Antarctica, up-close and personal, but with total peace of mind. 

Adventure Sailing Holidays: Australia 

Australia is the perfect destination for an adventure holiday by sea. Combining stunning views with amazing culture and incredible wildlife, this vast country offers so much to explore, from wide sandy shores to isolated coves. 

Not only is Australia perfect for exploring from the relaxing security of your yacht, it is also ideal for thrill-seekers. Diving and snorkelling around Australia’s world-famous reefs from your own private yacht is a truly unforgettable experience which can allow you to experience marine life in the most breath-taking way possible.
