Ship of the Year: Viva

At the Maritime Awards Gala on 7 November 2022 in Rotterdam, Feadship and Royal van Lent received the KNVTS Ship of the Year Award for their superyacht Viva. Eekels is proud to have once again made a significant contribution to a winning ship. The KNVTS website says of the Viva: The Viva is an eco-friendly 94-metre pure custom Feadship with an advanced hybrid propulsion system. This allows the Viva to sail a comfortable 12 knots on diesel-electric power. The yacht's consistency in all aspects earned it the 2022 Motor Yacht of the Year award at the 2022 BOAT International World Superyacht Awards.
