In naval history, the two Japanese sister battleships Musashi and Yamato were both flagships of the Japanese imperial fleet during the Second World War.
Named after legendary Samurai, both the Japanese battleships fell to the US armed forces after a heroic resistance.
Today, the yacht of an American Owner with a passion for Japanese culture pays homage to their valour by taking one of their names.
A yacht with a story and in a class of its own Built by Dutch company Feadship at her facility in Makkum, Musashi is a decidedly unusual vessel in every respect and, as a result, utterly unmistakable.
But it really could not have been any different, given that the yacht’s Owner wanted to make it truly unique.
To do this, the Owner committed himself to direct, personal involvement, in a way that was authoritative but not authoritarian, making use of his captain’s contributions but, most importantly, relying on the professional collaboration of a truly exceptional expert design team.
Musashi is the result of the complex joint endeavours of the historic Dutch Feadship shipyards and the multifaceted Dutch firm Sinot Yacht Design, which together developed the exterior design of the motor yacht. Feadship-De Voogt Design also developed the naval architecture while Sinot Yacht Design devised the interior design and created the interior decoration.
However, the Musashi design also took concrete form thanks to the top-level technical capacity of companies highly specialised in their specific field: first and foremost, Musashi has high-quality, reliable naval construction by Dutch Feadship shipyards. It also has the benefit of painstaking workmanship in the creation of the furniture and fittings, produced by the cutting-edge American workshop Frank Pollaro and Feadship’s interior specialists and subcontractors.
