Dutch superyacht builder Feadship launched the 35 meter motoryacht Letani for a customer in the Far East. Letani is a small yacht in the According to the builder’s press release M/Y Letani was completed in record time, requiring only two years from the first client meeting to successful launch of the yacht. Letani is another yacht in Feadship’s highly successful and limited production series of Lagoon vessels. Their shallow draft (Letani only draws 6 feet loaded) and smaller size allows for access to parts of the world inaccessible to larger Feadships.
Letani’s owner is one of Feadship’s youngest clients and said of the build experience, “Every time I see a Feadship come by I had two feelings: one, ‘that’s a very special yacht’ and two, ‘I want to get off my boat and step on the Feadship’. It is very exciting that I now get to board my very own Feadship for the first time. The only bad news about this launch is that we’ll miss our visits to the shipyard… We’ve felt part of the family from the keel laying ceremony onwards and building a Feadship has been a wonderful experience.”
Letani features an aluminum hull and superstructure which in addition to the vertical bow and twin MTU 16V2000M93 engines provides a top speed of 20 knots. At a cruising speed of 10 knots Letani has a trans-oceanic range of 3,200 nautical miles. The interior accommodations were designed by Sinot & Liaigre while exterior styling and naval architecture was completed by Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects. The floorplan includes accommodations for six crew members in three cabins and eight guests across four staterooms including the owner’s master suite. Per Feadship’s press release, Sinot & Liaigre “worked in close collaboration to create a warm, comfortable and livable apartment-like interior with clean and minimal detailing. A calm atmosphere prevails with smoked eucalyptus combining very well with deeply smoked and washed oak flooring and randomly veneered wall panels.”
