Feadship will be attending the Dubai International Boat Show 2012. The event, which will be celebrating its 20th anniversary, is expected to be bigger and better than ever, with thousands of visitors expected to come to the boat show between 13 and 17 March. Feadship will arrive at the Dubai show in good heart having signed eight orders for its superyachts during the recession.
Feadship has a long and distinguished history of serving clients in the Middle East that dates back to Persian royalty in the 1930s. Since then, the superyacht builder Feadship has built 25 yachts for Middle East owners, the majority being for presidential or royal families. Launched in 1978 for Saudi clients, the 64.64m motor yacht Al Riyadh was the largest Feadship in the fleet for almost a quarter of a century until the launch of the 65m superyacht Wedge Too – also for owners from the Middle East.
The fast pace of development in the world of superyachts is illustrated by the fact that Feadship’s current order book includes the first Feadship megayacht to break the 100-metre barrier, as well as various other projects ranging from 45 to 99 metres . This impressive 100m + superyacht project by Feadship will be the largest yacht built to date in the Netherlands and the first to comply with the recently published Passenger Yacht Code regulations (PYC13-36) for yachts of this size carrying up to 36 passengers.
At the Dubai show Feadship will showcase the latest Feadship Future Concept called Qi and display models of the 81m motor yacht Air and 77.70m yacht Tango . It will also be sharing news with visitors on the other Feadships launched over the past year including M/Y Fountainhead (87.78m), motor yacht Musashi (87.78m), yacht Air (81m), Lady Britt motor yacht (63m) and the Helix yacht (45m). Each sets a new standard of excellence in its own right.
“At Feadship, custom still carries its original, pure meaning,” says Francis Vermeer, head of marketing. “We are your first port of call for a personal superyacht that is truly tailored to your individual requirements. Our custom designs are created from scratch, and many Feadships have been inspired by clients from the Middle East region and there are no holds barred on their imagination.”
The team at Feadship would be pleased to make private appointments in advance, either at the show or elsewhere during the show dates.
