Superyacht Archimedes was built by Royal van Lent and was delivered to her owner in 2008. The 68 meter Feadship was designed by John Munford Yacht Design. With a beam of 12.3 meters or 404.4 feet, she has a relatively high volume. Her twin Caterpillar engines give her a top speed of 16 knots, while at her cruise speed of 12 knots, she has a range of 6.000 nautical miles. Archimedes is named after the Greek mathematician Archimedes of Syracuse,  known as the leading scientists and mathematician in the classical antiquity.
