Luxury yacht Utopia was built for Keith McCaw, who died during construction
Motor Yacht Utopia DV
Utopia is a 71 meter displacement yacht built of steel. At her launch she was the largest Feadship ever built. Her interior is designed by Redman Whitely Dixon Design. She can accommodate 12 guests and 18 crew.
Built for Keith McCaw
The yacht Utopia DV was built by Feadship (Royal de Vries) for Keith McCaw, who unfortunately died at the age of 49 in 2002. The McCaw brothers - lead by Craig McCaw, Keith's older brother – built up the worldwide McCaw Cellular Communications after their father died. With a base of just a Centralia cable-TV station, they built the cell-phone empire. In 1993, the company was sold to AT&T (American Telephone & Telegraph Co) for US$ 11.5 billion. Keith’s widow Helen McCaw kept the 38 meter Feadship Katrion until early 2015 when she sold her to Dutch millionaire Laurens Last. Katrion is now named Lady India. The estate of Keith McCaw canceled the delivery of Utopia.
