Feadship - De Vries - Van Lent

Feadship is one of the world’s finest SuperYacht Builders

Based in The Netherlands, they have been creating some of the world’s most impressive superyachts, including Madame Gu, Symphony and Ecstasea.

Feadship Royal Dutch Shipyard

Feadship is world leader in the custom superyacht business. Feadship is an association between De Vries Shipyards and Royal Van Lent and stands for First Export Association of Dutch Shipbuilders.

Many of the world’s most impressive yachts have been built by Feadship. Feadship has three yacht building facilities in The Netherlands: in Aalsmeer, Makkum and Kaag, and one design and engineering center in Haarlem.


Formed as a group in 1949, Feadship has roots that can be traced back a further century. The generations of craftsmen who launched iconic boats under the leadership of the De Vries and Van Lent families in the 1800s and first half of the 1900s are an integral part of the Feadship story.

Many of their descendants have continued to create Feadships well into the 21st century. The roots of the Van Lent yard go back to 1849 and the first De Vries yard opened its doors in 1906.

Feadship Fleet

Feadship has built a fleet of more than 250 vessels, most of them yachts.

Between 1967 and 1986 Feadship built three yachts - all named The Highlander - for Malcolm Forbes;

In 1983 Feadship built the 60 meter New  Horizon L for Dutch millionaire Bram Van Leeuwen. For long New Horizon L was known as one of the most expensive yachts ever built.

With most of the interior fittings in gold and bathtubs made of Lapiz Lazuli. The yacht was Bram van Leeuwen’s full time residence. Hereunder you will find a video of Bram van Leeuwen showing his yacht (in Belgium language);

Feadship built 8 yachts - all named Gallant Lady - for the US automotive entrepreneur Jim Moran;

In 2004 the 86 meter Ecstasea was built for Roman Abramovich. Ecstasea is powered by four MTU engines with a combined power of 12,444 hp and a General Electric LM2500 gas turbine, which produces 30,843 hp. The total combined horsepower of 43,287 hp produces a top speed of 35 knots;

In 2012 Feadship delivered the yacht Venus to the widow of Apple founder Steve Jobs. He died not long before delivery of his Philippe Starck designed yacht;

And in 2015 Feadship crossed the 100 meter mark with the 101 meter yacht Symphony, which was built for Bernard Arnault. Arnault is actually the owner of the Van Lent yard, through his LVMH Group.
