After WWII collapsed the European market for recreational vessels, the Van Lent family envisioned an opportunity with the booming American market and introduced Feadship to the American public at the 1951 New York Boat Show, impressing Show judges and clients with the high quality and especially, with the skillful use of steel and aluminum, which was rarely used by North American yacht builders at that time. As orders poured in, Feadship no longer built wooden boats after 1955 and was firmly established in the American market, having attracted the attention of the wealthy and famous, including publishing magnate, Malcolm Forbes, who commissioned the first of his three Feadships named The Highlander, in 1957. Today many of these classic yachts from the 1960s are leading members of the Feadship Heritage Fleet, an independently operated owners group established in 2013 for social gatherings.
