Testimonials from Previous New Build Yacht Projects

At HYC we are proud of our reputation for delivering projects on brief, on time, and on budget – and for maintaining excellent client and shipyard relations along the way.

“Designers like nothing more than to work with an Owner’s Representative and Technical Consultant who is switched-on, responsive and efficient. If these qualities are present in someone who is also diplomatic and engagingly ego-free, that is a huge bonus. James ticks all these boxes and is a pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend him highly enough.”

Dickie Bannenberg – Managing Director , Bannenberg & Rowell

“We have interfaced with many client representatives and project managers over the past three decades. James Hutchinson stands above all if you are concerned with sheer attention to detail and an incredible mind for engineering. His eye picks up on the smallest details and he motivates all of us to work together to produce a truly extraordinary and integrated finished product. What’s equally impressive about James is that these formidable talents are wrapped in a kind, polite, and helpful approach.”

Frank Pollaro – President & CEO , Pollaro Custom Furniture

“We came to know each other quite well over the course of various projects for discerning Feadship owners from the Far East. Several of these yachts have now been completed, and I consider it no small feat that you helped us raise the bar in achieving Feadship quality in this new market. Your diligence and meticulous attention to detail has helped us to further establish our brand as a no-compromise quality label. It is thus that I wholeheartedly recommend you for future projects.”

Henk de Vries – CEO , Feadship De Vries

“James Hutchinson’s experience proved invaluable to Feadship when it came to aligning its construction methodology to a production process suitable for smaller series-yachts.”
