KATRION
Katrion, Feadship’s most recent launch from its De Vries shipyard, is a 38.5-meter (126'3") stunner featuring a Michael McQuiston for Artline interior; McQuiston also designed the owner’s residences. Feadship says she was intended mainly for private use and features a “down-home” feel, thanks to soft and welcoming fabric selections, a private breakfast room with huge windows offering plenty of light and phenomenal views, and an expansive galley.

Her interior is so relaxed, it almost has a beach-house feel, which Feadship says also reflects the owner’s wish to run Katrion with a skeleton crew. On occasion, says the builder, the owner might even opt to take the yacht for a short coastal break without crew or take her to a remote cruising area and have the crew disembark. She features a dual-purpose swiveling passarelle, which functions as a gangway as well as a dock and boarding gate for a seaplane. She also boasts many crew-oriented attributes you’d expect to find on a 150-plus-foot megayacht, such as a food elevator serving all three decks.

The interior is defined by the use of lighter-colored woods like teak, wenge, and bamboo specially chosen in China. Along those lines, there are also a number of accents dedicated exclusively to fun, like cheerful wallpaper prints and other Asian-inspired touches, like bamboo-styled handles, mirrors, and hardware.

But, arguably, the coziest and most intimate place onboard is the full-beam owner’s suite, located forward on the main deck and accessible via a sliding door. A wooden arch, featuring backlit frosted-glass panels, frames both sides of the suite, giving it a tranquil and subdued feel. Leather upholstery lines the king-size bed’s headboard and area around the nightstands; the headboard is additionally framed by wenge wood. A Japanese-style mirror drops down to reveal a flat-panel TV. The suite also features a sitting area with Asian-inspired artwork and a chair with bamboo-style arms.
