Feadship has appointed Otwin Günther, 43, as the new director for Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects. He replaces Hans van Riemsdijk, who is retiring.

“I am delighted to join Feadship, which is recognized in the maritime world as brand leader in the luxury motoryacht sector,” Günther said. “In addition to the obvious technical challenges this brings in the areas of naval architecture, marine engineering and design, I was particularly attracted to the culture with Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects, where achieving excellence is the norm. I look forward to interacting with the world’s top designers and the extraordinary Feadship clients around whom this company revolves.”

Günther comes to Feadship from Damen Shipyards, where he was manager of engineering for high-speed craft and ferries. Under his watch, the engineering department at the company’s headquarters doubled in size, while the engineering subsidiary in Vietnam almost tripled and a new engineering branch was opened in Singapore. Günther’s previous experience includes key functions at Bosch, Plasticum and Axxicon.
