“When you sit with a nice girl for two hours, it seems like two minutes. When you sit on a hot stove for two minutes, it seems like two hours that’s relativity.” Taking inspiration from Albert Einstein’s iconic Theory of Relativity, Feadship, the royal Dutch shipyard behind Steve Jobs dream yacht, the Feadship iYacht, which unfortunately, didn’t see the light of the day, has now designed and unveiled its latest Future Concept ‘Relativity’ at the Monaco yacht Show 2012. Named after Einstein’s famous theory, this newest mega motor-yacht was actually created with a particular ‘client’ in mind, as the Feadship speculated on how brilliant scientist Albert Einstein might have used a custom Feadship superyacht to spread a message of knowledge and innovation around the world. Interestingly, the legendary scientist Einstein also had a great passion for sailing, and in his lifetime he owned various yachts.
With this Future Concept yacht, Feadship offers a theoretical blend of innovation, technology and yachtmaking know-how that could be transformed into reality with a distinguished client who shares the yachtmaker’s ambition to push the window of innovation and potential. Superycaht Relativity boasts a futuristic, organic drop-shaped superstructure, which features different decks that meets the distinctive uses, making the yacht ideal for luxury yacht charters or for private use.
Notably, there’s an open-plan Society Deck, which contains a special auditorium for giving presentations in a creative and dynamic environment, along with an Intelligence Deck with six scientist ‘cells’ rooms, and the Family Deck which features three stunning VIP suites, separate dining and lounge area. Also, there’s a pop-up wheelhouse which is sited in a premium yacht area. And, another fresh idea on-board is the facility to hide the tenders behind the superstructure.
Relativity’s sailing power is based on the usage of a single centreline engine with fixed booster jets to port and controllable pitch propeller and starboard, which helps the yacht to achieve a top speed of 28 knots. Relativity also features 1st-class facilities for a total 25 crew members in 10 double cabins, 3 single cabins, 1 officer’s cabin, and a special captain’s cabin.
Also, we have earlier seen the Feadship's 257-foot Hampshire II motoryacht.
