Feadship has marked the tenth anniversary of the Feadship Future Concept with its most audacious blueprint for inspiration to date.
Unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show using a yacht model and an augmented reality experience, the 2016 FFC Choice offers a wealth of opportunities for autonomous living on and off board. These include two co-propulsion tenders, a detachable beach house, a drone and a motioncompensated pool. A new wave of independence is further stimulated by the introduction of the revolutionary Feadship Independent Control System (FICS).
Released on a regular basis since 2006 in order to inspire the next generation of owners and the industry, the Feadship Future Concepts are based on client feedback, regular brainstorming sessions and research studies. Over the past decade they have been remarkably prescient in foreseeing a growing interest among owners in aspects such as glass construction (X-stream), hybrid propulsion (F-stream), low fuel consumption (Breathe), eco-friendly design (Aeon), facilities for younger owners (Qi), the desire for privacy (Relativity) and the art of entertainment (Royale).
The 2016 Feadship Future Concept takes all these areas into account – and then raises the bar further still. “The essence of our thinking on Choice is recognition that the ability to transform a yacht while underway is becoming ever-more important to owners,” explains Ruud Bakker, senior designer at Feadship. “As well as the wealth of choices Feadship clients have before and during the building process, our aim with this new concept is to give even more options once they are on board. The 74.50-metre Choice facilitates autonomous exploration in new and refreshing ways.”
