Royal Huisman: 42,000 m2 of purpose-built superyacht construction and refit facilities
The shipyards’s leading-edge capability is based on its purpose-built superyacht facilities in Vollenhove and Amsterdam. Both locations are located within easy reach of Schiphol airport, by road, or private aircraft. The true strength of the shipyard resides not so much in its comprehensive range of facilities and equipment (although these are as extensive as any in the world) as in the team that employs them. Because, unlike shipyards that recruit staff on a project by project basis, Royal Huisman has permanent and highly talented group of multi-disciplinary craftsmen and specialists who have worked together over the long term and who operate as a team . The collective knowledge, experience and expertise of this team is unrivalled, and further enhanced by well-established working relationships with the region’s marine engineering specialists and partners. All of these skills and resources are blended specifically to the requirements of each individual projects through Royal Huisman’s intelligent and renowned engineering process – focused exclusively on the goal of building the world’s finest custom yachts.
The Netherlands: 41,526,000,000 m2 of rich and diverse cultural attractions
For a small country, Holland has everything (except, perhaps, mountains!). The rich and diverse culture of the Netherlands extends from the arts, history, architecture and vibrant social life of its cities to magnificent areas of unspoiled coastline and countryside that are easily reached yet could hardly feel more distant from the energy and buzz of the modern cities. There are fascinating mediaeval towns and villages too, each with its own story to tell of centuries past in the long cultural, seafaring and trading heritage of this vibrant nation. Holland is also a country of enormous engineering achievements, with projects such as the truly breath-taking Delta Works in the Maas-Schelde delta offering stunning sight-seeing opportunities. Against this colorful background, the Netherlands offers every conceivable type of sport and leisure activity, all made highly accessible by superb transportation connections with excellent links to neighboring countries.
Taking delivery of your own custom superyacht and sailing her to the destinations of your dreams ranks as one of life’s most fulfilling experiences. And with the right choice of yard and location, the process of building her can come a close second. Building a custom yacht takes time – time that can, and should be, enjoyed to the fullest: participating in the realisation of your dream, building relationships with the people who bring that dream to life, and at the same time, discovering the cultural and environmental riches of the local region.
Beyond the ease of access from Schiphol international airport, the area around Royal Huisman’s headquarters in Vollenhove is among the most picturesque in Holland, offering a wealth of natural and cultural attractions. All this, in addition to an industry-leading superyacht shipyard, makes for a winning combination.
