Letani is the latest yacht to be launched by Dutch shipyard Feadship, the 34.65m yacht joins a series of aluminum vessels that include Moon, Avatar, Sand Too and Kamino. More importantly was the build period of the yacht which only took 2 years from meeting the client to the official launch, a record time for Feadship.
She has been purposely built to thrive on shallow waters and smaller marinas in Europe, Scandinavia, the Indian Ocean and Asia. The owner is from the far East, making the yacht a perfect fit for his sea journeys around the world.
Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects were responsible for both the naval architect and exterior styling of the yacht. The interior design was assigned to Sinot & Liaigre who managed to come up with spacious cabins. The accommodation features a master suite with bathroom, double vanities and showers. Two double cabins are located on the lower deck and can hold up to four guests. There are two VIP staterooms as well, good for two guests each. Three additional cabins are designated for the six crew member.
The owner had the following remarks about Letani: “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.”
Powering Letani is a set of two MTU 12V 2000 M93 diesel engines developing 3,600hp. The top speed is rated at 20 knots while the cruising speed is a modest 12 knots.
