Feadship's Royal Van Lent shipyard announced plans to expand its facilities on Kaag Island in the Netherlands.

Confined by limited expandable area around the yard, the Royal van Lent facility will extend underground in order to build even larger yachts in coming years. Construction is set to start in August 2012.

Based in the Netherlands, Feadship is a cooperative venture between Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw, Royal Van Lent and De Voogt Naval Architects with roots dating back to 1849.
