Feadship has launched the 57.60-metre twin-screw motoryacht with an interior from Bannenberg & Rowell Design.

Larisa features a contemporary classic exterior profile, with a wide range of modern features. The strong curvaceous signature lines of the design are supported by a straight knuckle that runs all the way round the yacht from the bow to the stern.

At the launch ceremony, Feadship director Henk de Vries praised the excellent cooperation with the owner's team, Bannenberg & Rowell Design and the captain. “The designers did an incredible job in creating detail and intricacy, creating an interesting and detailed interior.”
He also explained that the contract for Larisa had been the first new order signed after the beginning of the financial crisis. “A Feadship is not just a luxury product - it also has to add up financially. The smart and efficient negotiating skills of Will Christie at Y.CO played an important role in bringing this project to fruition at a crucial time for the industry.”

Larisa's captain James Verity told the watching crowds that the entire project had been great fun. “It has long been an ambition of mine to be involved with a build at Feadship. Over the past three years I have seen that the real Feadship magic occurs on the shop floor – the quality of workmanship, the attention to detail and the pride that goes into the work here is unmatched, and this is why Feadship is at the very top of modern yacht building today.”
