Superyacht refit, repair and renewal, re-defined by Royal Huisman.

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 through the Huisfit programme. Whether modern or classic, sail or motor, all our refits benefit from the team's passion for perfection and are backed by almost 130 years of experience.

The work can be undertaken at the Royal Huisman yard in Vollenhove or at nearby deep water locations to suit the owner's or captain's preference and the requirements of the project.

A Huisfit is no ordinary refit. It assures a high level of enhancement, taking presentation, functionality, comfort and operation to leading-edge industry standards. A true investment in the pleasure of ownership and in the long term value of the yacht, a Huisfit is underpinned by Royal Huisman's global reputation for quality and endorsed by appreciative owners and captains.

Huisfit provides a high level of reassurance as to the safety of owners, guests and crew, and the reliability of operations. As captains and owners are all too aware, "downtime" due to unexpected problems and repairs can be frustrating, disruptive and expensive. The safety and security of the yacht, its personnel and its contents, whether at Vollenhove or another refit location, is always a high priority for the Huisfit team.

Huisfit clients benefits from the exceptional infrastructure, service, and support for project managers and crew at its Vollenhove yard, which has the capacity to accommodate the great majority of superyachts. Modern buildings, spacious external areas, thorough organisation, tight financial controls and attractive working conditions all contribute to high quality outcomes. The Huisfit team also operates at strategic deep water locations nearby.

Huisfit's extensive and flexible capacity:
3 climate controlled halls:
45 to 81m, with gantry cranes
Dedicated spray booths:
up to 55m (masts up to 75m)

A refit and a change of cruising scenery?

A winter refit at Royal Huisman introduces an attractive new option to the cruising schedule. As a change from the Med and the Caribbean, the Baltic and Norwegian Seas offer a fantastic diversity of deep water ports and cruising grounds, steeped in history and tradition, cloaked in natural beauty, basking in warm temperatures, steady winds and long hours of daylight. 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. For more information, ideas and photo previews please click on the map on the right.

A slot for your project?

For further information or to schedule a refit, repair or overhaul you are most welcome to visit the yard for a look around our facilities. Alternatively, we would be delighted to visit you on board for a briefing and an inspection of the project. Either way, when our proposals are presented, you may be agreeably surprised by the competitive rates that result from the efficiency of a Royal Huisman refit.
