Worlds Top Yachts - The UtopiaFrom the first plans to build the superyacht Utopia, Feadship knew they were in for a huge job. Utopia was originally designed to be a 58-meter yacht, but the owner had a desire for a much larger ship full to the brim with top-level content.

The customer urged Feadship to lengthen to ship to 71.60-meters, thus making this one of the most complex ship construction projects in history. Aboard the Utopia, there are six decks which are all completely decked out with the latest innovative technologies and all the correct ultra-lavish comforts for the mega-rich.

It took very careful and precise work to build the Utopia, and the painstaking craftsmanship reflects on every single square inch of the finished product.

The level of finish leaves most astonished at the intricate detail. On an aesthetics level, Utopia reprises some solutions already successfully expressed by De Voogt Naval Architects, and also for Feadship. Rounded lines form the bow of the upper deck, and plenty of glass is set between the decks, making the ship appear more like a floating office building from a distance.

Worlds Top Yachts - Blue Moon

The oceans seem to be flooded by the massive egos of boat owners. A battle for supremacy is taking place in the form of a yachting contest. Who owns the biggest, the best, and the most lavish?

These are all questions the rest of us now want to know. Among the top contenders is the Blue Moon, built by Feadship for owner Richard Duchossois, now in his late 80s. This 198-foot yacht is about as luxurious as a yacht can possibly get. It is Duchossois' third attempt at his supreme boat, and thus far, he seems to be happy with the results. The third Blue Moon is a triumphant masterpiece in the world of yachtbuilding.

Blue Moon has two skylights in the roof of the observation lounge that add an elegant glow to the ship at night. The forward, half-crescent panel lights up the observation lounge completely, and the second round skylight shines down on the elevator shaft. On the top deck, a large Jacuzzi pool sits surrounded by lounge furniture.
