Changing Places

Feadship appointed Timothy Hamilton as the new director of Feadship America, which is based in Fort Lauderdale.

Hamilton learned to appreciate Feadship while working on the 62-meter Rasselas. He also came to know the brand well during a one-and-a-half-year stint as market research manager for Edmiston & Co. in Monaco and New York. Hamilton also worked for two years as sales director of Rodriguez Group USA in Fort Lauderdale and spent 18 months contracting for the Navy with BAE Systems in Washington, D.C.

“We are delighted to welcome on board someone with such a sound understanding of the attributes that make Feadship the world’s leading motoryacht brand,” Henk de Vries, managing director of Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw, one of the two Feadship yards, along with Royal van Lent, said in a statement.

“While the Feadship fleet incorporates owners from every part of the globe, the U.S. market remains our largest customer base,” he added. “The appointment of an experienced new director of Feadship America reflects the importance we attach to offering dedicated support and service to all our stateside clients, now and in the future.”

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