The yacht industry features a number of great yards that build phenomenal and luxurious motor yachts and sailing yachts. In the superyacht sector, the first port of call for people who accept nothing but the best is Feadship.
Headquartered in the Netherlands, Feadship partners with owners across every continent. They often describe building a Feadship as one of the most thrilling – and fun – experiences of their life. As the saying goes: “There are yachts, and there are Feadships.”
There are several key reasons why Feadship has achieved this iconic status. Firstly, it builds purely custom superyachts. What does this mean? In a nutshell, every yacht the yard builds is totally unique. Clients arrive with a vision, and Feadship starts with a blank sheet of paper to translate that vision into bespoke reality.
No two Feadships are the same. Each one reflects the style of its owner, how they like to relax and/or party, their ideas of the ultimate travel experience, the places they would like to discover and so much more. Feadship combines all these parameters into one package and adapts the design process to every individual client. It’s what the shipbuilder calls ‘pure custom’, and it involves embarking on an unforgettable voyage through the entire process.
Another key factor in the Feadship success story has been the experience gained from a pedigree dating back to the 1800s. ‘Feadship’ is short for the First Export Association of Dutch Shipbuilders, and was established in 1949 when the founding family shipyards of De Vries and Van Lent and naval architect De Voogt came together to pitch their high-quality yachts to the American market.
Clients building a yacht for the first time can rest assured that Feadship will draw on the many hundreds of times it has guided people in making a lifelong ambition come true. There is an inherent quality to every Feadship that you can only feel when you step aboard. This is the result of a relentless pursuit of perfection in every aspect of design, construction and engineering. Feadships are the product of perfect craftsmanship passed down the generations, and are renowned for holding their value.
When you bring it all together, that is what makes up the Feadship Experience – an investment in your pleasure that will live with you forever.
