Royal Huisman is principally known as a builder of fine custom yachts, but the same standards of expertise and craftsmanship are equally accessible for superyacht refits.
Every yacht requires a refit and refurbishment from time to time. Even Royal Huisman yachts eventually feel the strain of the extensive global passage-making so thoroughly enjoyed by their owners. Huisfit, Royal Huisman’s dedicated refit division, offers an extensive range of benefits and services to all superyachts in the global fleet.
Huisfit, has enjoyed growing success since extending its reach to the wider superyacht fleet. Huisfit offers everything from classification-driven refit and maintenance work to the re-arrangement and refurbishment of superyacht interiors.
The team recognises that every refit comes with a unique set of requirements, relevant infrastructure, access to specialist trade skills and equipment, and suitable slots to respect the yacht’s schedule.
With two main shipyards in the heart of the Dutch maritime services cluster – Royal Huisman Amsterdam and Vollenhove – at its disposal, Huisfit can accommodate any yacht: state-of-the-art facilities with heated halls complemented with non-tidal deep seawater quays for in-water work (berth length can be extended with floating pontoons). Each location offers high quality office facilities, personal amenities, service and support for project managers, captains and crew members. Rates are competitive, and appreciative owners, captains and project managers report that the experience is everything they would have expected from Royal Huisman.
For those looking to escape the overcrowded Med, a trip to Holland can be combined with a visit to the serene cruising grounds of Scandinavia, Scotland or the Baltic.
Many Huisfit commissions are undertaken for repeat clients and returning yachts initiated by word of mouth recommendations, always based on the team’s understanding that today’s client is tomorrow’s ambassador.

The social media news feed is the place to find the best, most interesting gallery and latest news of Huisfit. We strive to keep our customers and industry contacts informed through whatever media channels best suit their needs. In addition to major events, the shipyard’s main website and a large range of literature we also maintain an expanding digital presence through social media.
The Royal Huisman / Huisfit team believes in transparency, integrity and dependability in all its customer dealings. Honest and realistic delivery times are supported by thorough planning and proven project management. Clearly defined and agreed terms of business are underpinned by strong financial controls, open book keeping, fortnightly progress updates and financial reports to the owner’s captain or project manager.
The feedback on these standards from our customers has been very encouraging. However, the team is always open to suggestions as to how it can further enhance the services it provides. That is the very basis upon which the shipyard has sought to develop and maintain its reputation over so many years.
ROYAL HUISMAN QUALITY - ON TIME AND WITHIN BUDGET
Royal Huisman and Huisfit provide a fully manned 24/7 service department that provides parts and technical support to both new and refitted yachts, wherever they are in the world.
Because the team takes pride in standing behind its work, this is not just an advisory and parts delivery service. If a problem requires the attendance of the shipyard’s engineers – whether the yacht is lying in a Mediterranean marina or at a remote Pacific anchorage – they’ll be there, and swiftly.
A refit by Huisfit in Holland introduces an attractive new option to the cruising schedule. As a change from the overcrowded Med and the Caribbean, the Baltic and Norwegian Seas as well as Scotland offer a fantastic diversity of deep water ports and cruising grounds, steeped in history and tradition, cloaked in natural beauty, basking in long hours of daylight and steady winds.
All of this maritime magnificence is easily accessible from Holland's North Sea ports, offering the prospect of a very special integrated refit-and-cruise plan.
