Yacht Charter PICNIC By Feadship

PICNIC has had an all-encompassing refit that has just been completed in March 2017. The modifications included a completely new interior design refit by Adam Voorhees, who came onto the yachting scene as winner of the Young Designer of the Year award. Adam’s fresh look at PICNIC, along with her experienced owner made for the perfect collaboration. Adam transformed PICNIC's ambience into a calm, casual and inviting atmosphere. The composition throughout is kept minimal and allows for breathing room, constantly revealing design through details.
PICNIC's entirely new interior now includes a six-stateroom layout. A beautiful and spacious Master cabin complete with office lives on the forward region of the main deck with a VIP Queen cabin accessible on the starboard side of the main deck as well. 4 lower king sized guest cabins are in the lower guest area. 2 of which convert to single beds and 2 of which have additional Pullman bunks. The extensive upgrades in addition to the completely new interior included all new lighting, AV, furnishings, floorings, exterior paint and much more. 
Entering PICNIC from the formal entrance, on the starboard side, one will land at the formal foyer. Within the foyer, one will find a stunning spiral stairway that leads up to the bridge deck or down to the lower guest accommodations. The entire facade of the spiral stairs has an impressive metal finish manufactured by Neal Feay and inspired by the Japanese practice, omikuji (Japanese fortune-telling paper strips that can be found at shrines and temples), creating multiple layers of reflection, transparency and gradient coloring. From the foyer area one can go aft to the formal dining and main salon or forward to the on-deck master and VIP cabins. 
Moving aft to the main salon dining area one would find an open, light and airy area with a custom dining table for twelve and a 275 bottle glass front display wine cooler. The flooring is chevron pattern rift sawn oak, softened by sumptuous area rugs. Further aft in the main salon one will find a modified L-shaped sofa, coffee table and two custom swivel chairs with end table between, along with an additional low credenza and accent chairs. One can walk out to the aft deck from the aft salon doors. These doors are also used often as the preferred way into the vessel. 
Going up the stairs from the formal main deck foyer one will find the upper bridge deck foyer. One can go forward to the pilothouse passing a well-appointed day head on the way. The pilothouse is roomy with settee, large navigation console with state of the art electronics with many upgrades. Captain’s office and Captain’s cabin is found in this area. 
Going aft one will find the mature yet playful setting of the skylounge, which embraces a circular layout. There is a semi-circular sofa, designed by Vladimir Kagan, a Finn Juhl coffee table and chairs as well as a stand-alone table with four Hans Wegner chairs, perfect for coffee, tea, board games or a private meeting. Aft through the skylounge deck doors is a spacious area with a large outside dining table, built in settees on either side with additional loose chairs and two large side serving areas. One can go to the sundeck from an external stairway found on the starboard side deck. 
Up the stairs to the sundeck one reaches a large area with built-in settee, loose furniture and table aft. To port is a circular settee with table. Further forward to port is a complete wet bar with four bar stools and in the middle of the sundeck forward is a large Jacuzzi with ample sun pad area. One can make their way down the stairs one deck to the bridge. 
Forward on the bridge deck on the starboard side is a gym area with all the amenities. On the opposite side, one will find a tender area. Forward from this area either side leads to a beautiful bow sitting area just forward of the pilothouse. 
The main aft deck is host to a wet bar with four bar stools and settee with table and chairs, perfect for sitting, dining or watching the watersports below you. Descend the aft wide spiral staircase to reach the swim platform complete with shower for easy access to enjoy all the water toys. Just off the swim platform one will find the perfect water sport staging area in the beach club arrangement offered in the lazarette.
PICNIC’s size and volume is found in her tri-deck configuration, six-stateroom, 690 GRT build. She offers a superb design in which to utilize all the spaces aboard. Her stunning blue hull gives her a sophistication not easily found on the water today.
