1956 Feadship

The First Export Association of Dutch shipbuilders, Feadship was established in 1949.   Today it is a group of companies consisting of F. de Voogt International Ship Design and Engineering and two family-owned shipyards: De Vries at Aalsmeer and Van Lent on Kaag Island. Feadship's goal is to design and build the most perfect custom-built luxury yachts in the world. It took almost five decades for Feadship to reach its position as the market leader in the world of luxury super yacht construction. This was achieved through innovation, consistent high quality and loyalty to clients. While Feadship is proud of its achievements, it is not resting on its laurels. Instead it is taking steps to remain the vanguard of the industry.

While neither the smallest, nor the oldest, Flame is a unique power yacht, as are all Feadships.  A devastating fire in 1991 virtually gutted her interior and did extensive damage to her exterior.  The Elsworths found her in 1992 and began a three year restoration and reconfiguration.  The yacht was originally designed as a Yacht Fish with only two guest cabins.  The Elsworths incorporated the fishing cockpit  into the interior  space  to expand the guest accommodation area while increasing the aft deck above.  The cabin layout was redesigned specifically for charter.  The result are three equal sized guest staterooms, each with en suite head and showers.  The aft deck above has ample space to enjoy the beautiful Caribbean weather while  protected from the tropical sun.
