The 96.55-metre Feadship superyacht Faith has been recently spotted at anchor in the bay of Cala di Volpe in Porto Cervo, Sardiania. The vessel is believed to belong to Lawrence Stroll, a Canadian billionaire with current net worth of $2.6 billion. According to Forbes, the owner's previous yacht was sold to a renowned fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger.

Lawrence Stroll is known for masterminding the American fashion brand Michael Kors' hugely successful IPO in 2011 with a Hong Kong fashion tycoon Silas Cho being his business partner. Thus, the largest part of his fortune comes from selling his shares in Michael Kors; with the last stake sold in 2014. Moreover, Mr Stroll has been a part-owner of the SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team Formula 1 team since 2018.

First known under the name Vertigo, the superyacht was built by Dutch yard Feadship in 2016. Redman Whiteley Dixon was responsible for the exterior design of the vessel with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, while Chahan Interior developed the interiors and De Voogt Naval Architects worked on the naval architecture. 

With a gross tonnage of 2,999GT, Faith was built to Lloyds +100A1 class and flies the Cayman Islands flag.

The elegant curves of Faith's streamlined profile feature proportion and harmony, with the same applied to the characteristically Feadship lines of her flared bow, which features a games deck and helicopter landing pad with a hangar for a Bell 429 WLG helicopter below. 

The sweeping hull line leads down and aft towards the main deck aft, home to an extraordinary swimming pool made of glass panels that also form the ceiling of the beach club below. Creating this 68-millimetre-thick construction involved laminating together five layers of clear glass interspersed with foil. To make matters even more complex, the deep end of the 42,000-litre pool has an S curved shape and descends to 2.5 metres. 

The vast sea-level beach club beneath the pool almost doubles in size when the transom and fold-down side terraces are open. Doors in the hull further forward allow launching Vertigo’s custom tenders, which are Feadship-certified in a partnership with Tenderworks.

The yacht’s main deck is a home to a cinema and serves as a prime real estate location for the guest accommodation section, which includes six staterooms (two VIPs), a hairdressing saloon and a dedicated pantry.

The vessel’s interiors feature large floor-to-ceiling windows maximising the natural light and ocean vistas. Set-piece elements include the double-sided fireplace in limestone & quartz and decorative glass screens that separate the main lounge from the dining area forward, as well as the floating staircase which combines stainless steel, multi- textured stone and blue leather with a wealth of lighting in an exceptionally detailed way.

Overall, the superyacht accommodates up to 18 guests, as well as a crew of 34. The owner's cabin is located on its own private deck, highlighted by an imposing full-beam forward-facing stateroom with 180-degree views and a three-metre-high skylight ceiling above the bed. 

Powered by twin MTU engines of 3,004hp each, Faith reaches a maximum speed at 17 knots and cruises for 5,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.

According to MarineTraffic, the vessel’s location has not changed yet. At different times, the vessel was also seen in Côte d'AzurMonaco or Lelystad, the Netherlands.
