Feadship's 42m CALLISTO Undergoes Sea Trials

By Heather Collier

The 42.5-metre Feadship fully custom motor yacht Callisto has been spotted in transit in the Netherlands en route to her sea trials.

Launched this April, Callisto features exterior design and naval architecture from De Voogt Naval Architects, while her interior was penned by Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design.

A fast and spacious yacht, she is able to host as many as 12 guests. The 499 GT vessel has five guest staterooms and is constructed entirely of aluminium.  All cabins are en suite, and there are further quarters for a crew of eight.

She will be capable of reaching a top speed of 21 knots and is powered by twin MTU engines. To ensure a speed-optimised design, she features a unique bow that reduces pitching and lowers resistance at higher speeds.

Callisto offers plenty of outdoor spaces and is crowned by a large sundeck with plenty of shade from the sun and shelter from the wind, as well as a spacious seating area on the bridge deck. cShe can also accommodate waterfront dining on the swim platform. 

Tender storage can be found in a lower deck garage, as well as in a hatch-concealed bay in the foredeck that's accessible via a crane and can also host two jet-skis.

Callisto was sold in a deal closed by Camper and Nicholsons in 2019, with a delivery date expected within the coming months.
