A stunning 60m super yacht christened ROCK.IT has been launched by the Dutch manufacturer Feadship. Designed and built for an experienced owner who has previously chartered Feadship models, this new superyacht features an innovative control and maneuvering system developed for naval applications that has never before been utilized in a yacht. Not only is she fast on the outside, ROCK.IT is cosy on the inside with a stunning aesthetic design.
Henk de Vries, Feadship director, noted that his staff had a lot of fun working with the unconventional and uncompromising owner on his many visits to the shipyard to plan and build this yacht. The owner’s honesty and high respect and appreciation for Feadship’s craftsmen pushed the company to new levels during construction.
The result achieved by Feadship and its partner, Sinot Yacht Design is a sleep and bold ship that avoids pretentiousness and encompasses a natural flow of lines and surfaces that gives speed and elegance to the yacht.
Inside, ROCK.IT has dark precious woods mixed with light stones to create a detailed classic modern interior. The skylight in the sun deck canopy is one of the ship’s most outstanding features, automatically dimming according to the strength of the day’s sunlight. This feature allows for an open fell while maintaining comfort levels.
Cutting edge technology includes the installation of a unique control system with a semi DP autopilot that allows ROCK.IT to keep her heading at anchor, hovering on the main engine and thrusters. A three axis steering joystick with a rotational factor provides optimal use of various maneuvering modes. The new control system has its basis in a proven military background, thus bringing it into a commercial yacht represents a technological advance.
