Dutch superyacht builders Feadship has founded an association for the owners of their ships more than 30 years old since launch.

The association’s objectives are to unite the owners of classic Feadship yachts, promote the continuance of the sailing Feadship heritage, organise events for its members and offer them services related to their yachts. Membership will be strictly restricted to owners of registered Feadships built more than thirty years ago. In recognition of people who have been of particular service to the association, honorary members can also be appointed by the annual general meeting.

The board of the Feadship Heritage Fleet will be comprised of Feadship owners and the association, with support from Feadship directors. “Our intention is to organise various events around the world that will attract owners and their Feadships,” says Bas Nederpelt, Feadship sales and marketing director. “There is an incredible number of Feadships sailing that were launched more than three decades ago. As well as being a testimony to Feadship standards of construction, many of these yachts have been scrupulously maintained by their owners. They are very proud of the heritage of their superyacht and still enjoy cruising the world in the style and comfort which is unique to the Feadship brand.”

The first three members of the Feadship Heritage Fleet have already been accepted: The 16-metre Ammerland, launched in 1966, the 35.42-metre The Highlander from 1967, and the 32.22-metre Heavenly Daze (launched in 1972 as Aldebaran). The owners of these three Feadships – Arthur van Berge Henegouwen, Victor Muller and Rory Brooks, respectively – will be the founder members of the board.
