  1. Feadship 'Lonian'; A Closer Perspective
    The superyacht built as Project 700 and now known today as "Lonian" is a vessel well documented on the exterior from launch through sea trials and even after delivery. Her masculine exterior lines are the work of Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design with an interior that was completed by Richard Hallberg Interior Design in concert with Sinot. The interior has not been publicly documented and remains private. In fact the owner of Lonian stipulated that they wanted a full year of use of this superyacht without any publicity.
  2. Even though there are no interior photos and those will be kept private for the time being, we can share much closer images onboard some of the deck spaces and details perhaps not seen before. Lonian can accept her owner or guests via dock, sea or air and by the aerial route she has a helipad to help conduct helicopter operations up to an AW169 category. A tender can also be stored up there via a 3.5-tonne capacity crane giving the crew more flexibility should they need it.
  3. As the owner arrives via helicopter they will have to take the stairs down a couple decks to their master suite on the forward end of the upper deck. Once there the owner can emerge outside of the suite through forward sliding glass doors and enjoy a wonderful terrace area filled with plush furnishings fit for total relaxation. What's more is that there is a flush-built in glass-backed jacuzzi for the owner to use after working it up in the gym or watersports. It can be chilled or heated through a range of temperatures as low as 10 degrees and up to 38 degrees.
  4. There are 22 openings interior and exterior to create an "unrivaled open feel on board," Feadship says. Some of them are fold-out terraces for example, shell doors on either side of the beach club lower to sea-level and the aft of the beach club also opens up to the large swim platform. The superstructure also has a few openings. The master suite also has side-sliding doors that open to side balconies. The forward cabins in the hull also have a fold-down terrace that can provide balcony views. To help clean the glass and stainless on some of those 22 openings are 30-plus crew members.
  5. One of the well-thought out deck areas is perhaps the aft main deck where one of Lonian's stand out features was built. A large swimming pool flanked by four custom cabanas were built-in here. The cabanas are more fancy than you think. From far they look standard but a closer look reveals the cabanas have self-contained white screens that can be pulled down to create privacy or shade from the sun. Normally, the crew would have to add those on separately and take them off when not in use to keep them clean and not shredded by the wind.
  6. The pool itself is large enough to swim comfortably in and it has two large translucent panels in the floor which serves to filter and soften the daylight that passes through and lights the beach club below. The pool surface is 50 cm above deck height, creating a great place for guests to sit and paddle their feet after lounging on the cabanas.
  7. Onboard you will find accommodation for up to fourteen in seven cabins. Four doubles, two VIPs and the owner's suite is the break down. Fifteen cabins plus a captain cabin are for the crew. Lonian does have support in the form of a custom-built 66-meter catamaran-hulled vessel called "Hodor". Hodor herself carries the extra tenders and toys for Lonian and is maned by another 22 crew.
