Feadship is one of the Internacional references. Its prestigy has been the key to be a very appreciated brand in the building and repairing of boats sector, and very valued  in the charter of luxurious yachts. With a naval tradition, and experience of many years, this Dutch shipyard was set up from the union of the shipyards of Van Lent and De Vries families, creating the first cooperation of shipyards in Holland in 1949.

Monara: tradition, luxury and technology linked in perfect harmony

This association built Monara in 1969. This yacht of 26 meters of length is available for chartering in the Balearic Islands with it’s base in Ibiza. Her maintenance is excellent, due to a total refit between 2012 and 2016. Five years ago, Monara was in a desolated state. Her new owner took the decision of carrying the yacht to Holland for being totally refitted by Feadship shipyard.

The hull was completely modified, while two Gardner engines were sent to England for being repaired. Nowadays, Monara is in perfect conditions. Except the steering wheel and part of the cover, all the yacht has been completely refitted and modernized.

Her exterior and interior design mix Dutch and Italian style because of the union between Feadship and the Italian designer Carlo Riva. As well, chartering this yacht will let you experience a combination between tradition and modernity and the latest technologies. During her refit, Monara kept some original elements of the first yacht. The experience of a captain sailing with a classic steering wheel is very recommendable and very nice to watch. With two electrical stabilizers of MATN'S reducing the swing, there is no worries to have about the state of the sea while you are enjoying lunch. Based in a dynamic principle, the rotation of a disc at 2000, 5000 or more RPM produces an angular moment, controlled by an hydraullic cylinder, manipulated by a computer located in the control panel. This angular moment allows the rotation shaft to maintain the boat in a vertical position, instead of the wind or the bad state of the sea.
