Fourth F45 launched: Sirius joins Feadship charter fleet

Feadship Royal Van Lent has launched Sirius, the fourth yacht in its F45 Vantage customseries.

The exclusive F45 concept brings together all of Feadship’s expertise in design, construction, engineering, systems and materials to great effect. And Sirius offers all the benefits of the experience built up on three previous projects to once again show why Feadship is the world’s number one luxury motoryacht brand.

Sirius has joined the Feadship Charter Division and is sure to be a very popular member of the growing Feadship charter fleet. The F45 concept lends itself especially well to chartering as there are five suites on the main deck, allowing up to ten people to reside in this prime real estate location. As well as having panoramic views through the giant windows, this position adds extra comfort should charter parties wish to make night sailings.

Holidaymakers also tend to spend the vast majority of their time enjoying the outdoor life on a Feadship charter, and Sirius caters for every al fresco eventuality. In addition to a wealth of dining and sunbathing options, the beach platform serves as the ideal base for using the highly impressive variety of watersport facilities.

Like her predecessors Space, Harle (both launched in 2007) and TV (launched in 2008), Sirius’s hull, superstructure, bulkheads and exterior style were set by Feadship in advance, with the equipment portfolio also being pre-selected. Sirius has a ‘Miami’ interior, featuring classic art deco styling and a fresh feel. Contrasting woods and horizontal divisions clearly define the spaces, emphasizing the rich and comfortable environment.

Sirius offers the maximum space possible in a yacht of her size thanks to a central air conditioning system that removes the need for separate fan coil units in each room. Her general layout philosophy reflects the way modern owners cruise onboard superyachts, with the emphasis placed on a ‘beach house on the water’ lifestyle.
