A royal ceremony


Queen Máxima will officially open the new Feadship shipyard in Amsterdam on May 16. Feadship is a cooperative venture that was formed in 1949 between Royal Van Lent Shipyard and Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw. Feadship said in a statement that the opening of the new facility will be part of the 170-year anniversary celebration of Royal Van Lent.

The Amsterdam shipyard will allow it to build and refit superyachts up to 525 in length.

Queen Máxima will be shown a selection of classic yachts that are part of the Feadship Heritage Fleet, according to the statement. The queen will also be given a short presentation on the history of Royal Van Lent and meet staff trained by the Feadship Academy. There will also be a lecture on the sustainable solutions that Feadship are applying to the yacht-building sector.
