YMB17: Capt. Ted McCumber hired as commercial director of Feadship America

Dutch builder Feadship appointed Capt. Ted McCumber as commercial director of its America office, effective March 1. Capt. McCumber has more than 25 years experience as captain, new-build/refit captain and project manager, including at least four Feadships.

His most recent position was owner’s representative and build and warranty captain of the 274-foot (82.5m) Feadship M/Y Savannah, winner of the 2016 World Superyacht of the Year award.

He has also been at the helm of the M/Y Attessa II, M/Y Attessa III and M/Y Katrion, all Feadships.

“Representing the Feadship brand comes naturally to me; after all, I’ve been doing it for decades each time people came on board my boats,” Capt. McCumber said in a press release announcing the hiring. “Feadship is still seen as the undisputed brand of choice in the U.S. and I personally fully agree with a statement by one of my former bosses: ‘If you want to build a yacht right you have to go to Feadship’.”

Capt. McCumber will move from his home in the California mountains to Ft. Lauderdale for the job.

“For this position, we were looking not for a salesman but for a person of stature who can represent our brand from a position of authority,” Marketing Director Farouk Nefzi said. “Ted has a genuine understanding of the needs and aspirations of superyacht owners.”
