Otwin Günther, previously manager of engineering for high-speed craft and ferries at Damen shipyard, has been made director for Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects.

Speaking to SuperyachtNews.com, Günther explained that during his employment at Damen, "two Fast Yacht Support (FYS) vessels were being engineered in my department: Garçon and the 6711,” and that he is looking forward to the "wider scope of work and the particular challenges Feadship has to handle the coming years."

In a statement to the media Günther said, “I am delighted to join Feadship, which is recognised in the maritime world as a brand leader in the luxury motoryacht sector” and added that “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.”

Günther’s time at Damen Shipyards saw the department headquarters double in size and the engineering subsidiary in Vietnam almost triple. His experience also includes Bosch, Plasticum and Axxicon.

Günther replaces Hans van Riemsdijk, who is retiring.
