Feadship launches super-yacht Como
HAARLEM _ Feadship has launched Como, the 42.66m semi-displacement super-yacht commissioned by Neville Crichton, the New Zealand yachting great and motoring trade giant. Como is a custom-built motor yacht that bears the mark of Crichton ideas about design aesthetics and the lavish use of glass.
“Having built many yachts in New Zealand, my choice of Feadship came after a careful and extensive examination of its expertise and facilities,” says Crichton.
Como’s exterior design by Dubois Naval Architects reflects the owner’s very specific ideas: exceptionally large windows in the hull and superstructure. The large glass surfaces provide spectacular views from the owner’s stateroom.
Como has two and a half decks – an exception for Feadship whose recent projects have had four or five. The wheelhouse is slightly recessed into the main deck structure stressing the streamline design and creating a gigantic outside deck. The back end of the wheelhouse slopes down from the front into a control station for outdoor helming. Como’s interior by Redman Whiteley Dixonis shows dark timbers and fine details.
Como has an aluminum hull and superstructure. It accomodates 10 people and a crew of 8.
