Feadship has announced that Sir Neville Crichton, the owner of the Feadship Como, has won the Baccarat SuperYachtWorld trophy. The award was presented to Sir Neville on board the 46m motor yacht, which is currently on display at the Monaco Yacht Show.
The Baccarat SuperYachtWorld trophy is bestowed on an owner who, through a career of ownership, has had the vision and passion to steer superyachting into new areas of technology and creativity. Sir Neville was one of a shortlist of well-known owners, which also included Eddie Jordan, John Staluppi and Shahid Khan.
Henk de Vries, director of Feadship said, “The fact that Sir Neville Crichton won the award against such prestigious competition speaks volumes for his services to superyachting and for his new Feadship Como.
“At Feadship we are used to working with incredibly inventive clients to create incredible custom superyachts. The partnership with Sir Neville has been a fine example of how this works in practice, as an owner is given carte blanche to put our promise of perfection to the test. This award is further testimony to the success of the Como project.”
While Sir Neville is a highly experienced owner, Como was his first custom Feadship. The yacht features an innovative exterior profile, with an unprecedented use of glass panels all the way round the yacht and a radical mast design. Feadship’s craftsmanship can also be seen in her exterior metallic paint, praised by the class association for being unprecedented in its beauty.
Como has a ‘two-and-a-half deck’ layout. This incorporates Sir Neville’s specific request for a climate-controlled flybridge that serves the raised pilothouse lifestyle he so enjoys. The interior by Redman Whiteley Dixon features a masculine yet calming design based primarily on high-gloss Macassar ebony.
