The superyacht industry has dramatically grown over the past ten years, nearly doubling in number. It has been estimated that there are approximately 4,433 yachts actively operating with hundreds more in the construction process. Superyachts are designed and built for both, individuals for personal use as well as those used for commercial charter. They have also come a long way in design and technology. The superyachts of today are more innovated and luxurious than ever. Yacht builders have taken the industry to a new level with their level of skill and superior engineers. One superyacht that exemplifies the exceptional craftsmanship is the Feadship MQ2 megayacht.
Who is Feadship?
Feadship a world class yacht builder that is based in the Netherlands and dates back to mid-1800. Feadship prides themselves on being world leaders in the yachting industry with a fleet of world class yachts that cannot be duplicated. They hold the word perfection to its true meaning, down to the last detail. Feadship firmly believes that if a customer can dream it, they can build it. There is no limit to what the owner and Feadship, together, can build and launch.
Feadship constructs custom yachts that are uniquely designed. They work with the owner to design and construct one-of-a-kind yachts that are fit and tailored to the owner’s wants, desires and dreams. Feadship knows there is a distinct difference between customized and custom built yachts. Where customized means to simply tweak the design of a platform already in existence, custom starts from a blank slate where every detail of the yacht is the dream and perspective of the owner.
Feadship has generations of craftsman that have fine-tuned their skills to create masterpieces in every yacht that leaves their yard. Every artisan, engineer, metal worker, interior designer and other craftsman at Feadship believe in nothing less than perfection and have a passion to achieve it for every yacht owner.
Built in 1990 at the Van Lent shipyard in Holland, by Feadship yacht builders, the MQ2 is a 49m, (161 ft) Feadship megayacht that was updated and refitted in 2015 to give it a more modern and updated appeal. Feadship worked together with different designers and architects to construct the MQ2, one of the most beautiful, refitted megayachts on the water today.
