Feadship Inevitable Best Refit 2009
Inevitable, a 163′ Feadship motoryacht rebuilt last year at the Feadship yard in Makkum, the Netherlands, earned exclusive industry recognition in winning the 2009 ShowBoats International Award for Best Refit. The yacht features a timeless, elegant interior by Patrick Knowles Designs.
“We’re all delighted that the owner, a longtime Patrick Knowles Designs client with a true passion for yachting, will have this award to recognize his vision for the rebuild of this classic Feadship yacht,” said Patrick Knowles. “We’re thrilled to have been part of it.”
First built in 1990 and now virtually all new after the rebuild, Inevitable is truly a gentleman’s yacht. The new, traditionally styled interior is fitted with fairly light teak with raised panels and a satin finish that leaves the grain open. The main and upper saloons have full-beam coffered overheads with upholstered ceilings, giving an inviting welcome to all who go aboard. Black granite is used on countertops for a classy and dramatic effect as well as in the starboard-side entrance hallway where it is framed in diamonds of teak to form the floor.
The upper deck lounge has two separate areas – a bar and stools to one side and comfortable seating and a coffee table opposite. A big screen on the forward bulkhead turns this lounge into a luxury cinema. On the sun deck, you’ll find a spa pool and a bar, which is shaded by a permanent awning.
