Feadship Launches Refit and Service Division
Legendary superyacht builder Feadship formed a new entity, Feadship Refit & Services, to implement a new customer support strategy, My Feadship. Aiming to extend the high standard of Feadship quality experienced in the shipyard during the new build process throughout the vessel’s life, every Feadship’s resale value might increase upon becoming a brokerage or preowned vessel with the Dutch builder’s ongoing service certification.
Combining all services previously offered by the individual Feadship yards with four other major yards around the world, Feadship Refit & Services partners with Rybovich in the United States, Amico & Co. in Italy, Monaco Marine in France, and MB92 in Spain for all warranty work, service, maintenance and refits.
The new company was established to protect the pedigree of the Feadship fleet, which represents the pinnacle in superyacht quality. The refit, repair, service and post sale were previously handled by three Feadship yards in the Netherlands in Aalsmeer, Kaag and Makkum, with the refit design and engineering operations run by Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects. Feadship Refit & Services combines these activities with a fourth Feadship yard in Amsterdam opening in May, 2019.
Feadship will oversee all after sales activities, providing a premium service worldwide. An annual support package offering training for crew is available.
“The best way to ensure Feadship quality and reliability is at one of the three – soon-to-be four – Feadship yards,” according to Pier Posthuma de Boer. “Whether you wish to rebuild the engine room, have an extension or install a new interior, there’s no place like the home yards, where the obsessive perfection to detail of the Feadship craftsmen secures the uniquity of a Feadship.
“It is a shame when the finest superyachts are serviced in a suboptimal way that undermines their original brand value.”
Based in the Netherlands since 1849, Feadship is recognized as a world leader in custom superyachts, with craftsmanship setting the standard in design, engineering and construction. Feadship also operates dedicated charter services exclusively for Feadships.
