Builders Feadship puts its World Superyacht award-winning 45m megayacht for sale at a reduced 29.8 million Euro price.

From the moment of her launch Feadship had special plans for the 45-metre Helix. The world's leading luxury motoryacht builder knew that she would be ideal to showcase the Feadship lifestyle to new and potential clients across the Far East. Helix fulfilled this brief in spectacular fashion during 2012, receiving honoured guests onboard in China, Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand. She also participated in various Chinese boat shows, which resulted in the first sale of a new-build custom superyacht by a ‘Western’ yard to a client from the Chinese mainland.

Helix also made history by being the first superyacht to be allowed to sail up the Pearl River in China,” says Feadship Director Jan-Bart Verkuyl, who was onboard the vessel for all the main events attended by Helix on her tour. “She also showed her chartering credentials during several stunning trips into the remote areas of Indonesia. Guests loved the fact that all the staterooms are located on the main deck, offering superlative views. Maintained in as- new condition, Helix represents phenomenal value at the current asking price.”

“New owners looking to charter Helix can rely on the experience and expertise of the Feadship charter division should they so wish,” adds Feadship marketing manager Francis Vermeer. “More importantly perhaps, this is a unique opportunity to take possession of a pristine Feadship and enjoy the 2013 season in style."

The Netherlands-based Feadship, with roots dating back to 1849, is a leading shipyard in the construction of custom superyachts.
