Dutch-based shipyard, Feadship has launched the 47-meter Project 697. Designed by De Voogt, Project 697 is meant as a modern Feadship classic for an owner eager to bring back the looks of past motoryachts combined with modern technology according to Yacht Harbour.
Compared by the shipyard itself to the 50-meter Aurora B
, which recently completed an 8-month refit, Project 697's exterior combines past features such as a centralised mast and handrails finished in teak with modern enhancements such as large windows and bright spaces.
Accommodating up to 10 guests in a master suite located forward of the main deck and 4 guest cabins on the lower deck, Project 697 carries a crew of 9 with the captain's quarters located on the bridge deck.
Measuring 47-meters, Project 697 stretches across a beam of 9.6m and has a draft of 2.92m. Powered by twin MTU 12V 2000 M72 engines, the yacht can reach a speed of 14,5 knots and cruise for up to 4,000 nautical miles.
