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 successfully completed the refit of the 24-metre motoryacht Caravelle, named after the line of classic beauties built by Feadship in the Sixties during a partnership with the legendary Italian designer Carlo Riva. Having commissioned this year-long refit after falling in love with the yacht’s striking lines and vintage charm, the owners took the opportunity to also enhance her with 21st-century creature comforts such as zero-speed stabilisation.
The seven Feadships launched between August 1961 and October 1965 under the Caravelle name have gained an iconic status amongst connoisseurs of Sixties maritime cool. Much admired at the time by clients such as beer magnate Freddie Heineken, these fast steel motoryachts were resolutely ahead of the curve. Always popular, rarely available, the Caravelles made global headlines again when Feadship totally rebuilt the fourth in the line, Serena, in 2010.
The latest refit was carried out for clients who were actively seeking a Caravelle of their own. The client was delighted when he discovered the fifth cruiser in the line, originally launched as Quien Sabe in 1965. She had been renamed Absolute by her then owners, who had extended the yacht by 1.5 metres to add a lazarette and folding swim platform. These changes did not negatively affect the design, which retained its beautiful soft body curves, charming blue hull, warm teak deck and gleaming chrome deck jewellery, captivating the current owners.
Renaming her Caravelle, the owners had the yacht shipped from the Mediterranean to the Feadship yard in Makkum for an extensive refit designed to ensure she lasts at least another half a century. The work included completely stripping and rebuilding the engine room and the installation of no less than four RotorSwing at-anchor stabilisers. In addition, the hull was repainted and the interior and systems completely upgraded to meet the full scope of Feadship’s exacting standards.
