Feadship Heritage Fleet get-together in Fort Lauderdale

The Feadship Heritage Fleet is organizing a get-together on Saturday 1 November 2014, for American owners of classic Feadships over thirty years of age. The even takes place during the 55th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Feadship has always had a strong presence in the US, and some of their American clients in the 50s and 60s included Arthur Wirtz, owner of the Chicago Blackhawks ice hockey team, Henry Ford II and Malcolm Forbes.

“More than half of all the Feadships in the global fleet were built for the American market and they include many iconic yachts,” says Victor Muller, chairman of the Feadship Heritage Fleet. “The board is proud to have its first Feadship Heritage Fleet US event taking place in Fort Lauderdale, homeport to so many yachts built by Feadship.”

The first American member joined the Feadship Heritage Fleet in March – the 1952 Feadship Anahita V, which is now based in Miami. “It has been a great experience to be part of this genuine family-type club,” say her owners, Kristin & Chapman Ducote. “We attended the Monaco Historic Grand Prix event earlier this year, which was spectacular. It was great fun to meet fellow owners and to watch the races from the yachts. We encourage all American owners of classic Feadships to come to Fort Lauderdale and become involved in this excellent association.”
