Feadship's 71m JUICE Delivered

By Heather Collier

Feadship is delighted to announce that the 71m JUICE has now left the confines of her shipyard in Amsterdam and is currently undertaking her first voyage to the Mediterranean following delivery to her owner.

Formerly known as Project 820, Juice was launched back in January, and is composed of a steel hull, aluminium superstructure and an impressive composite top deck that keeps the vessel's centre of gravity as low as possible for efficient and enhanced seakeeping.

After a series of intense sea trials throughout February in the North Sea, it appears she is finally ready to welcome her owners and guests onboard.

Juice was commissioned by a beloved, repeat Feadship client who is an admirer of modern art. Her name was heavily inspired by the 1967 work of American artist Ed Rusha; a nod to the expression "juice on top", similar in meaning to the phrase "icing on the cake."

Her exterior was crafted by British studio RWD with "soft lines" and "distinctive creases" for an "elegant yet masculine" appearance. Delicately penned by Peter Marino, Juice is the perfect blend of polished stainless steel, glass, and teak, with countless hours spent on the finest of details, from her outer-body, to the materials used for her central staircase.

Main highlights include an eight-metre pool on the main deck, a walk-around superstructure, sundeck gym and a private cinema on the lower deck. Beneath the foredeck, there is also ample storage for three custom tenders, comprised of a 10-metre limousine, eight-metre guest RIB and a rescue boat, which are launched via gullwing doors in the hull; leaving owners spoilt for choice when wanting to explore or venture ashore.

Unusually for a yacht of her size, she also boasts an owner's deck positioned between the bridge deck and the main deck, along with four, unique state rooms. At approximately 1,550 GT, she can comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests, with additional space for 24 crew members who will be prepared to wait on their every need.

Other yachts currently in build at the Dutch shipyard include the 118 metre Project 1010, which was spotted back in October 2020 with a delivery expected in 2022, as well as Feadship Project 822, which was also seen on transport in September 2021.

With careful afterthought implemented into every element of her framework and design, it is clear that this vessel is far more than just the "juice on top".
