The shipyard is world leader in the custom superyacht industry. Feadship is an award winning association between De Vries Shipyards and Royal Van Lent Shipyard and stands for First Export Association of Dutch Shipbuilders.
Many of the world’s most impressive luxury yachts have been built by Feadship. The company has three yacht building facilities in The Netherlands. One in Aalsmeer, Makkum and one in Kaag. And one yacht design and engineering center in Haarlem named De Voogt Naval Architects.
Formed as a group in 1949, the luxury brand 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 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.
