Arrow embodies the perfect bullseye of success, reaffirming the expectations of a discerning Owner who recently identified and acquired a vessel with an exceptional pedigree.
Crafted by the expert team of professionals and artisans at the renowned Dutch shipyard, Feadship, known for its uncompromising results, Arrow’s sleek lines, initially sketched on paper and meticulously brought to life, are the result of a collaborative effort between the design studio H2, led by the talented Jonny Horsfield, in partnership with Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects. With a maximum length of 75 meters (246’1″) and an overall beam of 12.90 meters (42’4″), featuring a steel hull and aluminum superstructure.
Though christened in 2020, Arrow today stands among the most captivating vessels on the world’s oceans. She has embarked on splendid adventures and thrilling escapades, preserving her contemporary elegance and maintaining her cutting-edge technological value. Notably, she represents a triumph in the application of systems poised for future evolutions.
Her voluminous 1,890 GT are distributed across four decks, offering accommodation for up to 12 guests in ultimate comfort and artistic beauty, embodying the creative essence of H2 Yacht Design.
Boarding from the stern, the Main Deck is immediately inviting and multifunctional, boasting expansive sofas ready to welcome guests for immediate refreshment and to test the hospitality of the captain and his crew. Opening the large sliding doors seamlessly transitions into the remarkable interior spaces. Here, an airy and unique configuration unfolds, characterized by oval shapes that ingeniously define the space. Opposite cozy white sofas for intimate gatherings, the main focal point greets guests, yet does not overpower them within the yacht.
The oval dining table with a glass top and bronze-colored base, set in the center of the salon, accommodates 12 guests and is beautifully illuminated by a creative chandelier and white fabric wall panels with a Persian-style design. This area extends into a space dedicated to family and friends, featuring a plush, luxurious indigo-colored sofa, akin to a private cinema with its exceptional 100-inch TV screen and home theater system. Beyond the walls, a pantry and galley worthy of three Michelin stars produce exquisite and refined dishes.
The Main Deck’s centerpiece is the hall, featuring a prestigious and functional glass elevator for easy access to the Bridge Deck and Lower Deck. Beyond this point lies the Owner’s office, where the oval theme recurs through a desk with a view of a life-sized painting by the renowned American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, titled ‘Charles The First’, a source of inspiration for creativity. Following this is the generous Owner’s suite, bathed in natural light through large windows, designed to be a welcoming space with seating and sofas, ideal for extended moments of privacy and relaxation.
The oval theme is reiterated in the carpet details, the tray ceiling with a recessed tray above, surrounding a Preciosa lamp, and in the various furniture pieces in the lounge area. Contrasting colors, floor-to-ceiling curtains, and artistic Pictet glass wall panels exude pure elegance.
Calm and silence reign supreme in this space. The curved ebony-framed walls, behind and in front of the bed, combine with the Majelite fabric wall covering created by the artist Helen Amy Murray, which surrounds the TV mounts in contrast with glossy ebony details. Dressers, separate showers, and lavatories for him and her, along with one of the largest bathtubs ever crafted for a yacht, complete the space.
To the luxury of sight, Arrow adds the luxury of silence. Here, thanks to the contribution of acoustic consultant Ulrich Rasmussen, tranquility prevails. Notably, there has been a significant reduction in the noise from air conditioning fans and sound isolation from room to room.
The bow is an independent area dedicated to the tender garage, featuring two-fold-up hull doors on the sides, facilitating the swift deployment of three tenders (6.2m, 9m, and 10m), as well as various toys and jet skis, with the assistance of the crew.
Ascending via the elevator or the plush stairs leads to the Bridge Deck. Towards the stern, one encounters the private Saloon, equipped with a Pantry and connected to the Galley below. The environment is meticulously designed for intimate gatherings at the corner bar, card games at the table, or enjoying a movie with a concealed TV screen that smoothly descends for viewing, although this is not your typical yacht cinema. The soft sofas are contextualized within a rich color scheme of bold royal blue with touches of rust and red, teak veneer wall panels, and a cream-colored carved carpet complementing elements in precious Macassar ebony.”
Exiting to the Aft deck, a large table welcomes all guests for organizing an outdoor dinner or breakfast, shielded from possible sea breezes with sliding glass windbreak panels and a hinged windbreak door. The low backs of the sofas create a real outdoor lounge, while the high decorative ceiling, measuring an impressive 2.75 meters, ensures that meals are served with breathtaking views.
Conversations, especially during the cool evenings, can continue while relaxing on the comfortable sunpads. Two teak staircases with glass balustrades lead guests to the main aft deck, where they can unwind after dinner or arrange unique themed parties.
Walking forward, past the central hall, you reach a generous VIP room with an exceptional view through a panoramic window. The choice of indirect lighting, emanating from the ceilings, behind and beneath the furniture, enhanced by table lamps, creates a soft and warm white glow reminiscent of old incandescent bulbs.
Next is the captain’s cabin with a specially modified dedicated office that accommodates two workstations, one for the captain and another for a second officer. Finally, the technologically advanced Wheelhouse commands the entire crew for agile and safe navigation. Here, some guests can enjoy watching the navigation comfortably seated on a plush sofa that offers an unobstructed horizon, facilitated by the slightly lowered console with seven monitors and blackout systems for excessive light. Two large doors provide access to the external deck, with ample space that can be used for various recreational activities, from yoga to golf, all in safety. It can also host an EC135 helicopter or similar for swift transfers. The Bridge deck can easily transform into a private space for an important guest of the Owner, ensuring maximum privacy.
The Sun deck, accessible via internal stairs, is dedicated to overall well-being, featuring a modern and well-lit gym with a striking teak floor and top-tier equipment. At the center of the room, a large padded oval yoga mat lies beneath a captivating ceiling with geometrically patterned strips of interwoven leather. With its warm ambiance and sophisticated subdued lighting, it’s a spacious meditative area with a height of 2.40 meters.
Heading outside to the bow, a splendid and generous mosaic-tiled Jacuzzi is positioned amidst generous sun pads and comfortable tables, perfect for enjoying a relaxing aperitif with sea breezes.
At the stern, an outdoor lounge area boasts a spectacular semicircular bar, ideal for socializing among guests and perfect for preparing cocktails accompanied by fresh and exquisite canapés or an informal lunch with an outdoor kitchen equipped with two pizza ovens, a two-burner stove, and a barbecue.
Descending dramatically leads to the Lower deck, where four comfortable suites for other guests are located in the center, easily accessible via the central glass elevator.
At the stern, the multifunctional Beach club, accessible internally from the Main deck, expands with two large fold-down platforms on the sides. During the day, it serves as the access point to the sea for activities like diving and various water sports, thanks to its well-stocked inventory, or for boarding tenders for onshore visits and toys. It’s also an enticing space to enjoy the sea breeze while lounging on comfortable sunbeds or sitting at the glamorous bar. Additionally, there’s a SPA area with a Massage room and Steam Shower.
In the bow, the professional crew of 18 members is accommodated, always ready to attend to every request and trained for all onboard activities. There are four single cabins for officers and seven double cabins for the crew, along with a spacious lunchroom for the entire team, adaptable for various briefings.
The Engines room is the yacht’s beating heart. The systems are divided into zones, ensuring easy accessibility without obstructions. A pair of MTU 16V4000 engines holds a place of honor, delivering up to 1840 kW of power, propelling the yacht to a maximum speed of 17 knots under optimal weather conditions and a cruising speed of 14 knots, with a range of 5500 nautical miles (Fuel capacity: 185,000 liters). Efficient and functional catalytic converters are neatly arranged for exhaust gas purification, achieving Tier III certification. Three extremely quiet Caterpillar generators with a capacity of 245 kW each are operational. Anchor stability is ensured by Quantum – XT zero-speed stabilizers, offering a high-quality onboard experience.
Arrow also boasts a spacious storage area with a large refrigeration chamber, a wine storage, a refrigerated waste storage, a laundry room, a second crew area, and various technical rooms, including ample space for hot water storage created through waste heat recovery. Arrow provides all the hot water necessary for all systems – from climate control to hot water for sanitation and the Jacuzzi, and even water heating for terrace cleaning – through waste heat recovery.
Mark Jansen, head of the Feadship project, recently noted that every delivered Feadship is the starting point for future technology, and it seems that Arrow has been perfectly aligned with that perspective since 2020. Waste heat recovery is now a cornerstone of Feadship’s aggressive carbon emission reduction program.
Since delivery, Arrow has covered over 50,000 nautical miles, visiting some of the most beautiful marine destinations, from Northern Europe to Turkey, the Caribbean, and Florida, in both private and charter service. It has received acclaim and sparked curiosity wherever it goes. Many more seasons lie ahead for Arrow, with many more straight to the center!
