Feadship Refit & Services is a new globally operating company that is responsible for implementing our pioneering ‘My Feadship’ client-support strategy. It protects the pedigree of the Feadship fleet and supports clients in securing their Feadship’s unique DNA. Combining all services previously offered by the individual Feadship yards, the My Feadship programme has three main pillars:
The number one location to have a refit carried out is at the Feadship yards in the Netherlands, allowing us to ensure Feadship quality and reliability. Feadship Rebuild covers all major activities, ranging from rebuilding the engine room and adding an extension to the installation of a new interior. If you decide to refit your Feadship due to changing use or to adapt a pre-owned Feadship to your personal requirements, there really is no place like home.
The Feadship Services Network
This exciting new partnership is with four top yards in the main sailing areas: Amico & Co (Italy), Monaco Marine (France), MB92 (Spain) and Rybovich (US). It supports owners who cannot logistically have their Feadship sail to the Netherlands or when refit activities are not invasive enough to justify the trip. The Feadship Services Network also offers Feadship-approved maintenance, repair and warranty work, making sure Feadships are serviced in a way that guarantees their original brand value.
The Feadship Authentication Certificate
Talking of guarantees, the third pillar officially recognises those Feadships which have been maintained to the premium standard required. The Feadship Authentication Certificate is an industry-first system with two tiers:
- All new builds receive a certificate at launch and documentation that can be regularly updated after Feadship-approved maintenance & service has been completed at the network yards
- A survey team will inspect Feadships in the global fleet and, where applicable, confirm that the Feadship standard has been met over recent years.
This official stamp of approval enhances resale value and ensures buyers of pre-owned Feadships know they are receiving true brand value.
Our refit, repair, service and after-sales activities have until now been in the hands of teams from the Aalsmeer, Kaag and Makkum yards, plus the refit design & engineering operations at Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects. Feadship Refit & Services combines all these activities and will also incorporate the fourth Feadship yard in Amsterdam when it opens in May 2019.
