Launched at the New York Boat Show of 1951, the company was promoting aluminum yachts which were then a novelty. The yachts were met with interest from the American market and new orders started coming in, revitalizing an industry that was struggling following World War II.
Celebrities of the era started ordering Feadships, amongst which was Malcolm Forbes who commissioned the Highlander from the shipyard.
By 1968, 3 entities were left within Feadship (Royal Van Lent, De Voogt and De Vries Lentsch), the others having left the organization during a new period of the growth for the industry.
As the industry developed as a whole, Feadship continued building yachts, becoming one of the most prestigious shipyards.
