Meet The Board

The Feadship Heritage Fleet Board is comprised of four enthusiastic classic Feadship owners. With some even involved from the outset in spring 2013, they invest considerable effort and time into creating an exclusive and valuable association for fellow classic Feadship owners. The board is formally elected by the members during the General Assembly.

Nonetheless, the Board would also like to receive input from fellow members on how they would like to see their association evolve. Members are invited to share their experiences and the issues faced by owners of Feadships more than 30 years old. Only by working together can we ensure that the Feadship Heritage Fleet association becomes something of truly unique added value for us all.

Robert grew up around the Kaag Lakes, introducing him to the yachts built by the Feadship – Van Lent yard at a very young age. An internship at Feadship’s marketing department in 2007 was the start of his career in the modern superyacht industry.

The events that are being organised bring together a diverse group of people, sharing the same passion and celebrating the heritage of these amazingly preserved yachts”
