The Feadship Heritage Fleet is organising a rendezvous for all its classic yachts this weekend in the Feadship Aalsmeer Yard based in the Netherlands.
“The board is proud to have this Feadship Heritage Fleet event take place in the home base of the historic yachtbuilder,” Chairman Victor Muller says. “We will gather together in the country where our beloved yachts were crafted, amid the rich nautical tradition which our Feadships represent and celebrate.”
Already 17 classic yachts have registered for the event, adding up to around 240 metres of sailing heritage between them. The upcoming event will include a yacht hop on the Friday of the event, and the relaunch of the 1966 motoryacht Katja after an extensive four year refit. The first general assembly of the Feadship Heritage Fleet will take place the next morning, where members will discuss future plans and developments.
The meeting will be followed by a tour of the yard and a presentation of its history by Feadship’s distinguished archivist. In the afternoon, the entire fleet will go out for a rally on the local lakes, to end the event in style with a barbecue at Fort Kudelstaart.
