Dutch yacht industry veterans Duncan Schaaf and Arne Feenstra have just launched a new management and consultancy company in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Dutch Maritime Partners.
Both Duncan and Arne have been involved in the yachting industry for more than 10 years, working at shipyards, overseeing yacht refits and most recently managing a number of large yachts. Within the new company, which will operate fully independently, the team will use their expertise to efficiently manage large sailing and motor yachts.
The team of Dutch Maritime Partners will visit the Monaco Yacht Show next week, where they are available for meetings. Duncan says, “being the number one superyacht show, Monaco is a fantastic event to launch our new company. With several on-going negotiations for the management of large yachts, we are confident that there is a need for fully independent management companies”.
In addition to managing motor and sailing yachts, the company also offers project and refit management and is regularly consulted by yacht owners and brokers to survey yachts.
