Utopia is a 71-meter displacement yacht built of steel. At her launch, she was the largest Feadship ever built.

The yacht is powered by 2 Caterpillar marine engines. Which bring her a top speed of 16 knots. Her cruising speed is 14 knots. She has a range of 5,000nm.
In 2018 she was sent back to Feadship for a 10-week refit. Her interiors were redecorated and she received a new hull coating
Built for Keith McCaw
The yacht was built by Feadship (Royal de Vries) for Keith McCaw. He, 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 meters 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.
Sold to Miller
After a few years of ownership by De Vries, in which Utopia was often chartered, Utopia was sold in 2006 to William H. Miller.
He bought Utopia as a gift for his – then-wife. Although he had never been on such a large yacht. When his marriage ended he sold Utopia to a Canadian billionaire. Do you know who the current owner of the yacht Utopia is? Please do send us a message.
The yacht’s owner was Bill Miller.
