Ecstasea is a luxury yacht. The biggest Feadship built, in June 2009 she was sold by her original owner, the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, to a philanthropist for $200 million. Many believe it was purchased by Sonja Zuckerman. Her mansion in Gables Estate was retrofitted with a large 150 ft dockage and pictures of the Ecstasea docking were seen with her and grandson Richard Rodriguez Mendez on board. This was later confirmed by the brokers who assisted with the sale and confirmed the purchase price of $200 million.[2]

Design[edit]

Ordered by Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, Ecstasea was built in 2004 as the largest Feadship ever built. The yacht was built in the shipyard of Royal Van Lent and has length of 85.95 metres (282.0 ft), and a beam of 11.50 metres (37.7 ft), resulting in a deadweight of 585 metric tons. The yacht is made of all steel, and is much closer to a luxury ship, than to a yacht.

Her exterior design was created by the teamwork of Terence Disdale and De Voogt Naval Architects, with Disdale also responsible for the yacht’s Asian-style interior. David Waite-Wright, who was Senior Designer at Disdales, oversaw the project. The yacht later went on to win multiple interior design awards. She has capacity for 14 passengers, who are divided into 6 separate rooms.

Engine[edit]

The yacht has four main MTU engines with a combined power of 12,444 hp. The builder also installed a General Electric LM2500 gas turbine on board, which produces 30,843 hp. The total combined horsepower of 43,287 hp allows the yacht to reach a maximum speed of more than 30 knots. The maximum speed with only the diesel engines working is 25 knots. The cruising speed (diesel only) is 22 knots.
