Illusion I

In pristine condition, this much improved vintage Feadship is looking for her new Owner

The classic 55.50m Feadship ILLUSION I is offered for sale and is a pedigree yacht with all the hallmarks of the respected Dutch builder, complemented by many modern additions.

Originally launched in 1983, ILLUSION I underwent a major rebuild in 2010, when her interiors were updated by Bannenberg & Rowell, and she was given a 5m stern extension by Pendennis.

An extensive refit in 2018-2019, saw the installation of a new galley, a new beach club and improvements to the sun deck. Since then, she has kept excellent maintenance records, with all the expected annual winter servicing and upgrades carried out.

With timeless styling, ILLUSION I has lots of options for entertaining, both inside and out.

Large comfy sofas and armchairs in muted shades of brown and cream in a partially divided cinema space create a sense of cosiness away from the bar area in the main salon, while a separate formal dining room is ideal for enjoying meals as a family. There is also a second indoor salon up in the sky lounge.

Outside, the beautiful sun deck has a Jacuzzi, sunpads, plus an alfresco dining table, with biminis providing optional shade, while there are more alfresco dining options on the bridge deck aft and the main deck aft.

For quieter moments under the sun, guests may like to retreat to the fore deck, where there are more sunpads, while the beach club has a fold-down swim platform to allow for the quick launch of all watersports equipment.

ILLUSION I can accommodate 12 guests across six cabins, including a full-beam Owner’s suite forward on the main deck with a marble bathroom, with his ‘n’ her sinks and a Jacuzzi tub, a private office, walk-in wardrobes, and a dressing area.

ILLUSION I also benefits from a full beam VIP cabin on the lower deck aft, which also comes with a marble bathroom, and which can be accessed privately via the main salon. The rest of the guest accommodation includes two double cabins and two twins.

Powered by 2 x 814kW Caterpillar D399TA diesel engines, ILLUSION I has a top speed of 16 knots and cruises at 13 knots.

Based in Athens, she is ready to welcome potential buyers aboard and she has already proven herself on the charter market.
