With the arrival of Royal Huisman, the port of Amsterdam has attracted yet another yacht manufacturer with a Royal Warrant.
The company will be operating from the former Holland Jachtbouw shipyard, which will be owned by Port of Amsterdam from the 14th of May.
The Netherlands is a leading global player in the manufacture of superyachts. Royal Huisman is the second superyacht manufacturer to join the port of Amsterdam community, following Feadship Royal van Lent, which opened its facilities there in 2016. The arrival of Royal Huisman will generate high-quality jobs in, as well as bring innovation and craftsmanship to, the Amsterdam region.
Jan Timmerman, CEO of Royal Huisman: ‘In extending our facilities in the Amsterdam region, we will be able to properly meet the growing demand among current and new customers. This second shipyard will, over a longer period of time, serve as an excellent addition to our existing site in Vollenhove, both for new builds and for refits.’
