There are yachts and there are Feadships.
Every yacht we build is totally unique. Feadship clients come to us with a vision, and we start with a blank sheet of paper to translate that vision into bespoke reality. Your Feadship will reflect your style, how you like to relax and/or party, your ideas of the ultimate travel experience, the places you would like to discover, and so much more.
It is our challenge to combine all these parameters into one package and adapt the design process to every individual client. It’s what we call pure custom and it involves embarking on an unforgettable voyage through the entire process. There is also an inherent quality to every Feadship that you can only really 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. Together, this is what makes up the Feadship Experience… An investment in your pleasure that will live with you forever.
Feadship is defined by its superb craftsmanship and sets the standard in every aspect of design, engineering and construction.

Feadship has celebrated a major milestone in the construction of its fourth shipyard, located in a prime water-side location in the heart of Amsterdam. In the presence of invited guests, the first concrete was poured into the giant drydock, part of an impressive feat of engineering involved in building such a facility in a city that is several metres under sea level. When completed at the end of 2018, the yard will also include a giant hall for building new superyachts of up to 160 metres in length along with refits of existing Feadships.
The Amsterdam yard will be the second facility operated by Royal Van Lent, which will also continue to operate its Kaag Island yard at full capacity. The two premises will share the same management team and corporate culture, with some 450 skilled employees from across the spectrum of outfitting and refit activities moving between the facilities when required. Along with the two Feadship yards run by Koninklijke De Vries in Aalsmeer and Makkum, there will now be a total of four Feadship facilities in the Netherlands.
The Dutch capital of Amsterdam is already a city with global allure, renowned the world over for its iconic buildings. Now the city will also be the launch pad for some of the finest superyachts available, matched only by those built at the other three Feadship yards.
“This major investment illustrates our determination to be fully future-proof,” explains Feadship director and the CEO of Royal Van Lent Jan-Bart Verkuyl. “The average length of the superyachts we are building continues to grow: the majority of projects currently underway are above 80 metres and there is a clear trend to go ever larger. The size limitations imposed by the location of the two original Feadship yards in Aalsmeer and Kaag were partly solved by the third yard opened in Makkum in 2005, and this fourth facility in the Port of Amsterdam will complete this expansion.”
