Continuous, long term investment in the shipyard has provided Huisfit with a comprehensive range of infrastructure and facilities that rival any to be found within the industry.
State of the art tooling and equipment can be found in all the manufacturing and construction departments including CNC controlled machine shops that enable perfectly matched and detailed repairs or replacements to be fabricated from the widest range of marine quality materials including wood, aluminium, stainless steel, GRP and carbon composite.
In the hands of the highly skilled and experienced production team – people with an unrelenting passion for perfection – the shipyard’s facilities, equipment and expertise are focused on every project in complete, productive harmony.
Nowadays the shipyard is more flexible capacity-wise than ever before, working in close collaboration with selected and highly qualified co-makers. These partnering companies work closely together with Royal Huisman’s in-house team at the facilities located in the heart of the Dutch maritime services cluster.
What continues to set the shipyard apart from others, however is that Royal Huisman remains unique in advancing all essential superyacht skills and knowledge in-house (design, engineering and production). All projects, wherever they are undertaken, are able to benefit from Royal Huisman’s comprehensive and highly regarded in-house design engineering capability. Experience, expertise, 2D and highly sophisticated 3D modelling software enable the engineers to develop solutions that optimise functionality, efficiency, use of space and serviceability.
Typical applications include construction, interiors, systems, electrics and electronics, as well as deck equipment and rig refits. In addition, Huisman know-how ensures extremely accurate weight estimation, enabling the yard to control and correct the all-up displacement and trim of the yacht on completion of the work. Sea trials can be conducted both pre- and post-refit as a benchmark for the project and to ensure that all issues are correctly identified and (where agreed) rectified.
Huisfit can accommodate any motor or sailing yacht, 24m / 78ft or 100m+ / 330ft+. Two main locations in Amsterdam and Vollenhove with clean, modern, state-of-the-art workspaces with stores and workshops. Both also offer high quality office facilities and personal amenities.
A stunning cruise in the Northern cruising grounds? Amsterdam is very suitable for a short stopover (and combined with support by Huisfit if needed).
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 Amsterdam, offering the prospect of a very special integrated refit-and-cruise plan. For further information, examples - both impressive photos and descriptions - as well as three introductory cruising options please follow the link 'READ MORE' below.
Huisfit and Royal Huisman also rely on their Mediterranean service hub, Palma-based P&G Yachting, renowned for their bespoke support services to the yachting industry. For Royal Huisman it was an obvious choice to become a shareholder in 2017.
P&G Yachting offers expert services, maintenance, spare parts supplies and support to all superyachts, backed by the team in Vollenhove.
Recognizing the importance of looking after the team as well as the yacht during the refit process, Huisfit provides purpose-built facilities for project managers, captains and key crew members. Fully furnished offices as well as multiple houses and apartments for crew.
Crew are also provided with logistical support on a wide range of matters including car rentals, immigration and passport requirements, tax advice, accommodation, translation services, medical requirements, banking needs, technical training and registration for fire, safety and first aid courses. Visiting crews are offered a warm Dutch welcome and invited to all the shipyard’s social activities and events such as keel laying, farewells and project launching parties.
The surrounding region of both shipyard locations as well as the Dutch cities offer a great diversity of social, cultural and historical interest for visitors as well as a full menu of recreational activities.
The shipyard locations in Amsterdam and Vollenhove have fully furnished onsite accommodation for crew. Please contact the team for more information.
