There’s no purpose to this article other than a moment’s appreciation for this truly exquisite example of an early-2000’s build from Feadship.
If you take just a minute out of your day to join us in the marvel of ‘Wedge Too’, then our job is done. The graceful 65-metre beauty from the Dutch shipyard was dubbed a “spectacular departure from the norm” when it was built in 2002, and it’s for this reason that it’s just as easy on the eye two decades later.
With sweeping round edges across its multi-deck floor plan and elegant wood panelling, the vessel embraces a soft symmetry that’s rarely seen in modern naval architecture which is consistently favouring sharper angles. De Voogt Naval Architects commanded the design of the aluminium superstructure and steel hull, while French designer Philippe Starck embraced a host of “quirky” features for the yacht’s interior.
‘Wedge Too’ can accommodate 12 guests and features a complete owner’s deck, three VIP guest cabins, four guest staterooms, and facilities for up to twenty support staff. The cherry on top of this boat is actually the circular hot tub lounge area that you wouldn’t even know exists from water level to ensure maximum privacy. Reminiscent of a classic ocean liner’s ‘bird’s nest’, it could be the best vantage point on the whole vessel to enjoy sweeping vistas of St Barts or the Monaco Grand Prix.
