SOLD! 163′ Feadship

Worth Avenue Yachts is pleased to announce the sale of BROADWATER.

BROADWATER is a 163’ Feadship that was delivered in 1990 and recently refit in 2015. The extensive refit qualified BROADWATER to receive accolades at the 2016 World Superyacht Awards in Florence, Italy. BROADWATER was originally launched as MI GAEA then sold to Richard Hull and renamed INEVITABLE in 2008.

Mr. Hull along with refit project manager, Harry Hankel and general director of the Feadship yard, Sijbrand de Vries directed an 18-month top to bottom refit. INEVITABLE was extended by 2.5 meters to 163’ 5” at the Royal de Vries Makkum facility where she also received new blonde-teak interior from Patrick Knowles Designs and new blue paint on her hull. The refit is said to have touched every aspect of the yacht and is describe by Sijbrand de Vries as more of a rebuild than a refit. INEVITABLE’s hull structure was sandblasted below the waterline and modified. A structural change involving replacing the swim platform with a brand new one in accordance to Lloyd classifications and her flag requirements were set in place. The previous owner of MI GAEA had the yacht originally built with special stowage for 2 motorcycles. Mr. Hull also modified the bridge-deck lounge and added a sundeck extension all according to classification and regulations.

Mr. Hull’s 18-month refit also included overhauling the gensets, changing the hull color to a rich blue and installing a new main switchboard to control and monitor all systems. INEVITABLE was purchased at the Palm Beach International Boat Show in 2014 and upon new ownership, renamed BROADWATER.

The classic Feadship, purchased in excellent condition, with wonderful pedigree was ready for a major interior design overhaul. Under the supervision and design team of Patrick Knowles BROADWATER’s styling’s were curated to a modern, sophisticated look. All new exterior paint, a new sundeck arrangement and crane, a completely updated galley, upgraded mechanics, new AV and electronics were installed, all new tenders and toys, etc were done at Rybovich in 2014. The refit resulted in BROADWATER being named as a finalist at the World Superyacht Awards in 2016.
