ROYAL HUISMAN AND P&G YACHTING JOIN FORCES26 July 2017
Dutch superyacht builder Royal Huisman and Palma based P&G Yachting, renowned for their bespoke support services to the yachting industry, have joined forces to expand their activities and portfolio in Palma, offering expert services, maintenance, refits, spare parts and temporary importations to all superyachts.
For Royal Huisman, the joint venture brings an official presence in the region, which also encompasses its sister company Rondal.
Royal Huisman’s Managing Director Roemer Boogaard explains: “Palma has established itself as the service hub for superyachts in the Mediterranean, and based on our existing liaison with P&G Yachting as service provider, we strongly believe that we can add value with our expertise and experience as a shipyard, making our knowhow available to yachts built by us and also to any other superyacht requiring refit, maintenance, service or assistance.”
This expansion of Royal Huisman – with its headquarters in Vollenhove – into the Mediterranean follows the earlier announcement regarding the exclusive use of Emden Dockyards and the facilities of Holland Jachtbouw after its termination later this year. Or as Roemer Boogaard puts it: “It was the next logical step in our strategic plans for the future”.
Alisdair Galbraith, Managing Director of P&G Yachting adds: “After many years of working closely with Royal Huisman and Rondal we feel that this is a natural step that will add immense value to our respective clients.
P&G Yachting will continue to offer the highest standard of service now boosted by the knowledge and skill set of one of the most revered yards in the superyacht sector.
We are extremely proud to be joining with the Royal Huisman ‘family’ and look forward, very much, to welcoming our existing and new clients to Palma.”
