Feadship launches 27m Catch following 10-month refit

3 May 2023 • Written by Gabrielle Lazaridis

The all-aluminium 26.6-metre sportfisher Catch has emerged from Feadship's Amsterdam shipyard following a ten-month "no expense spared" winter refit.

Catch was built by Feadship in 1984 and returned to its home shipyard at the end of 2022 after a change in ownership. She was originally delivered as Gallant Lady but underwent an extensive 15-month refit in 2005 that saw her stripped back to a bare metal hull and completely refurbished. 

With this latest refit, Catch received a full repaint, new teak decking on the foredeck, new teak caprail aft, revarnishing of all the exterior teak, new veneer on the main deck aft, a new awning on the foredeck, technical maintenance and upgrades to the LED lighting system. 

There were also several updates made to the yacht's interior, including an additional crew cabin made available by removing the onboard crane and repositioning the owner's wardrobe. The yacht now accommodates a total of four crew, whereas previously the number of crew had been limited to two.

According to the yard, the owner of Catch has had plenty of experience refitting his other Feadship yachts, and visited the yard in person to develop a plan for the project under the guidance of his representative Peter Wilson of MCM and designer Adam Voorhees.

“Acquired by a serial Feadship owner last year, the yacht was in excellent condition at the time of sale, but he determined to bring her back to the Netherlands to ensure his Feadship remains a Feadship,” said Pier Posthuma de Boer, director of Feadship Refit and Services. “We were actually full when the owner contacted us, but we’re always proud when long-term clients bring their yachts back to us for refit work, so we adjusted our schedules and Catch is now back in the water.”

“It was amazing working with Peter, Adam and the owner,” project manager Patrick Dekker added. “The relationship worked so well because we already knew the owner’s team and they were able to take decisions on the spot. It was a pleasurable experience all [around].”

Feadship currently has 26 yachts under construction across its shipyards, with deliveries extending until at least 2025. Among the in-build projects is the highly anticipated 84-metre Project 710, fitted with biofuel generators that aim to reduce carbon emissions by up to 90 per cent.
