Wim van Kam­pen (left page bot­tom left) was only sort of shop­ping for a yacht when he saw an ad in 1988 for the Fead­ship Con­tentus (left page bot­tom right). He bought the 1958 build that same day and rechris­tened her New Wave be­cause, he says, “It is a new wave in my life. I have never owned a boat.” Rory Brooks (right page bot­tom left) and his wife bought their first-ever yacht, Heav­enly Daze (right page bot­tom right), in 2003 so their fam­ily could bet­ter ex­plore the Mediter­ranean. The 1972 build was re­fit in 2012 at Pen­den­nis Ship­yard and is now a char­ter yacht. Brooks’ sec­ond Fead­ship, Hera (orig­i­nally Pien in 1956) was a spur-of-the-mo­ment buy at a Fead­ship Her­itage Fleet grand as­sem­bly meet­ing.
