Holland's Feadship launches the 44.65-metre 'Blue Sky' in a ceremony combining the Chinese & Dutch maritime cultures.

Feadship say that this is the first superyacht to be built by a Western shipyard for a client in mainland China. The owner sent his personal representative to accept delivery of the new megayacht that comes with her own helicopter deck and dedicated karaoke and Mah-jong rooms.

The twin-screw Blue Sky powered by two MTU 12V2000M70 – 788 main engines, has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, with an exterior styling developed by Feadship and Sinot Yacht Design. The interior design is from the boards of Bannenberg & Rowell Design and Sinot Yacht Design.

“We very much enjoyed the smooth cooperation with the owners and their representatives in China,” says Dickie Bannenberg. “Blue Sky features a fresh contemporary interior with lots of lightweight loose furniture. The sky deck lounge is a dedicated karaoke space with an 85-inch television, while the Mah-jong room is found aft of the wheelhouse and includes a state-of-the-art table that shuffles the tiles and deals the dice automatically. This room can also be converted into an additional cabin with its own bathroom.”

With a maximum speed of 14.5 knots, the Blue Sky has a trans-Atlantic range.
