Leslie Adams has been appointed manager of Feadship’s charter division in the US. With more than 20 years’ experience in sales, Adams has worked for a wide range of companies including VPM and Palmer Johnson. She recently ran the charter department at Ferretti’s Allied Marine in Ft Lauderdale, Florida.

“Because the Feadship charter division only offers Feadship yachts, I already know that my clients will have the best possible onboard experience,” says Adams. “My main objective is to find the perfect Feadship for the specific type of vacation they have in mind.”

Adams replaces DJ Kiernan, who managed the Feadship charter division since 2008. This included a record-breaking summer season in 2010.

Based in the Netherlands, Feadship is a cooperation between Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw, Royal Van Lent Shipyard and De Voogt Naval Architects, with combined roots dating back to 1849. The company custom-builds motoryachts, as well as offering dedicated charter and refit services.
