Feadship welcomes Venus home to Holland
Busy season ahead as Feadship expands refit capacity
One of the most celebrated superyachts of recent years has arrived back in the Netherlands for the first time since her launch in 2012. The 78-metre Venus, originally launched in 2012, has returned home for her five-year Lloyd’s certification and various upgrade activities. This heralds the start of a hectic year for the Feadship refit and service team.
Having successfully completed eight significant refits in the previous season, Feadship is preparing for the arrival of some iconic superyachts in the Netherlands for a refit this coming autumn and winter. They will take place at the Feadship yard in Makkum as well as some rented facilities in nearby Harlingen. Various Feadships in other locations will also benefit from the dedicated expertise of the Feadship refit specialists at yards elsewhere in Europe.
In addition to welcoming Venus to the yard, the craftsmen in Makkum will soon get to work on the awesome Ecstasea. The current owners have decided to have a wide range of design changes carried out in Feadship style throughout the interior. This 86-metre beauty from 2009 will also have her crew interior refreshed and an owners’ gym installed in the helicopter hangar. In addition, Ecstasea will have various new exterior design features added along with a selection of bespoke technical maintenance activities.
