Feadship’s 20-year-old “Wedge Too” is a timeless lesson in naval architecture

This article has no purpose other than to appreciate for a moment this truly exquisite example of an early 2000s build from Feadship.

If you take just one minute out of your day to join us in the wonder of “Wedge Too”, then our job is done. The graceful 65-metre beauty from the Dutch shipyard was dubbed a ‘spectacular departure from the norm’ when she was built in 2002, and that’s why she’s just as pleasing to the eye two decades later. .

With wide rounded edges on her multi-deck floor plan and elegant wood paneling, the vessel adopts a soft symmetry rarely seen in modern naval architecture, which consistently favors sharper angles. De Voogt Naval Architects commissioned the design of the aluminum superstructure and steel hull, while French designer Philippe Starck adopted a host of ‘original’ features for the yacht’s interior.

‘Wedge Too’ can accommodate 12 guests and has a full owner’s deck, three VIP guest cabins, four guest cabins and facilities for up to twenty support staff. The icing on the cake of this boat is actually the circular hot tub lounge which you wouldn’t even know existed at water level to ensure maximum privacy. Reminiscent of the “bird’s nest” of a classic ocean liner, it might be the best vantage point on the entire ship to enjoy stunning views of St Barths or the Monaco Grand Prix.
