This week’s Palm Beach International Boat Show will feature hundreds of yachts, but only a handful could be considered truly noteworthy, paradigm-shifting vessels. “Angiamo”, the 2003 140′ Feadship, is unquestionably in this category. She was the first expedition yacht ever built by Feadship, and that alone would qualify her. But the fact that Angiamo has the capabilities required to find herself in proximity to an iceberg is, well, just the tip of the iceberg.
Angiamo features the types of amenities that one would expect to see on a world-class motor yacht – and some, like an industrial-scale full-beam galley, that one would not. Like the rest of the boat, these amenities remain in exceptional condition, thanks to a maintenance program that could, in the years ahead, very well come to define “best practices” for motor yachts in this class.
Yet, even among those with the resources to acquire her, Angiamo is not for everyone – her ice-strengthened steel hull and “go anywhere” disposition are best-suited for a particular type of owner, one for whom adventure is nothing less than a way of life. If that might be you, then the center of the yachting universe, at least through Sunday, will be on “D” Dock at Palm Harbor Marina. We hope to see you there.
