About CETACEA

The 40m Cetacea is a classic Feadship and a true "Coup de Coeur" from the 1970s. Cetacea’s exterior profile exudes style and elegance, and this timeless design is complemented by a luxurious interior designed by Robin Rose & Associates.

Cetacea has undergone a variety of refits and customisations over the years, including an extension of her stern and a new swim platform in 1995, an extensive $8m refit in 2014, and further refits in 2019 and 2021.

Her Dutch pedigree and resulting quality continue to make Cetacea one of the most sought-after Feadships of the past 50 years.  Cetacea’s current owner is the most recent Commodore of the New York Yacht Club, and in that cherished role Cetacea has been at the head of the fleet - displaying an unparalleled level of elegance, class, and seaworthiness.

Cetacea’s layout and functionality are two of her greatest features. She can accommodate nine guests across four suites, all located on the lower deck. The full-beam owner’s stateroom benefits from a centreline king-sized bed, ample closet and storage space, with a steam shower en-suite.

An incredibly spacious saloon is located towards the stern of the yacht, and there’s a charming formal dining room located forward on the main deck.  The interior has a classic look, with traditional teak wood panelling and comfortable, deep-cushioned furniture.

Cetacea’s flybridge has been equipped with a custom hardtop that allows the space to be fully enclosed and climate-controlled, making the deck a more versatile space for enjoyment in all climates.

Some of Cetacea’s notable expeditions include a multi-year circumnavigation of the globe (under her previous name, Queen of Diamonds, from 1996 to 2000), and a voyage to New Zealand, through the Pacific and back to the USA, as Alchemy in 2014 - 2016.

The steel-hulled Cetacea has an incredible range and a unique design that provides strength and seaworthiness while turning every head in the harbour.  The yacht has fuel-efficient CAT diesel engines, a top speed of 12 knots, and a cruising speed of 10 knots.

Cetacea is arguably one of the finest Feadship yachts ever built, and her current availability presents an opportunity to enjoy a proven world-cruising yacht that has voyaged around the globe.  Cetacea is offered for sale in excellent condition and has been an incredibly popular charter vessel, presenting a new owner with commercial possibilities as well as private cruising.
