Jan-Bart Verkuyl: “A client of us once said a Feadship is like a floating business card. As a result, we see that our clients have a strong growing awareness that if they are building a yacht for themselves they should do this in a responsible manner. At the same time, we believe as builders we can help innovation by putting decarbonisation on the agenda and providing tools which decrease the footprint of our yachts. In line with this we are implementing quite a few solutions."
