You have decided to commission the construction of your new superyacht. Now, you need to decide who will build this ultimate dream for you. There are many factors to consider, and three that stand out are:
Quality, location, and culture
Quality, because there is no substitute for excellence, consistency and lasting value, for the possibly most substantial investment that you are ever likely to make.
Location and culture, because ease of access, and a rewarding experience that extends beyond the confines of the shipyard, are pivotal to enjoying a truly fulfilling build process.
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, so it is time that should be enjoyed to the full – 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 country of build.
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.

Vollenhove has another unique element; one that can’t be photographed and taken home…
It is the people that make both the region and the shipyard so special. “People here have a sense of pride and community,” notes a well-respected observer from abroad. “Just look at the homes, the gardens, the windows – they’re immaculate and well cared for. This same care and attention is how our team approach their work in their daily lives. We are nothing but bricks and mortar without our people,” says a Royal Huisman’s representative, “and we do our best to provide them with the best resources at our disposal. I’ll never forget when our client for Juliet came to the shipyard as he considered where to build his dream yacht. ‘This place is like Santa’s workshop. This is where I want to build.’ I would only add that Santa is nothing without his helpers.”
The Spirit of Individuality
Some names need no introduction. To anyone who ever genuinely considered acquiring a luxury super yacht, references to Royal Huisman as the builder of those finest and most distinctive yachts in the regatta or marina will be a familiar experience.
When admiring the build quality and attention to design detail on a particular yacht, the reply from its owner or crew “It’s a Huisman!” is virtually regarded as self-explanatory. Royal Huisman yachts are deemed unique in conception, quality and execution. Yachts that are rare, beyond compare.
So, what is left to add? Perhaps just this
Royal Huisman continues to strive to make what is good, even better, and constantly looks to implement innovative ways to remain at the forefront of edgy and technologically-advanced design, engineering and production.
