Royal Huisman employs a team of over 350 highly motivated and competent people, from skilled craftsmen to expert concept designers, with extraordinarily diverse experience and capabilities, working at facilities for custom builds in Vollenhove.

For some years now, the shipyard facilities have been extended to the Amsterdam region. This second location serves as an addition to the existing shipyard, with a focus on Huisfit projects.

A stunning summer cruise in the northern cruising grounds? Amsterdam is very suitable for a short stopover (and combined with support by Huisfit, if needed).

As a change from the 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 warm temperatures, steady winds and long hours of daylight.

All of this maritime magnificence is easily accessible from the facilities in Amsterdam, offering you a very special integrated refit-and-cruise plan. More information, examples as well as three introductory cruising options can be found at [link].

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima – for many, the perfect combination of traditional royal lineage with the modern world. Their accession in 2013 followed the abdication of the much-respected Queen Beatrix who, in 1984, bestowed the “Royal” title upon the Huisman shipyard. An accolade that has to be earned rather than automatically given, the Royal title was awarded in recognition of 100 years of quality and excellence – a tradition that continues to this day.
