Feadship Royal Dutch Shipyard

The shipyard is a 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 to 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 is 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.

Feadship Fleet

The yard has built a fleet of more than 250 vessels, most of them motor yachts.

Between 1967 and 1986 they built three yachts – all named The Highlander – for Malcolm Forbes.

In 1983 they 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).

The company 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.

What started as a ‘yacht spotter’ hobby, turned into a fast-growing yachting site with thousands of unique daily visitors.

In 2009 SuperYachtFan in its current format was published online and soon the focus changed from ‘yacht photos’ to ‘yacht owners’, creating the Super Yacht Owners Register. A database with more than 1,450 yacht owners.

This was an instant success as many people around the world are interested in, or curious about, these multi-million dollar yachts and their wealthy owners. (Luxury travels of the Billionaire Boys Club)

Investigative journalism

The SuperYachtFan team is active in Investigative journalism. We spend a lot of team researching and deeply investigating yacht ownership structures.

Our reporting is copied and/or used by many international media companies.

SuperYacht Site

With thousands of daily visitors and a strong growth rate, SuperYachtFan became one of the largest ‘superyacht sites’. We realize the most organic search traffic of all known yachting websites.

Social Media

We are active on social media including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter.


The details about yacht ownership as stated on this site and in our Yacht Owners Register are sometimes based on rumors. Often actual yacht ownership by the private individuals mentioned can not be confirmed, at least from a legal point of view.

On the other hand… where there’s smoke, there is fire ;-)
