“Already for seven centuries we are building ships in the Amsterdam area. The region has always been known for its craftsmanship and the highest quality standards when it comes to newbuild and refit.

A quiet transformation has been underway in the superyacht world now.

Where the Mediterranean and the Caribbean used to reign supreme in terms of both facilities and interest, a new generation of superyacht owners are increasingly looking for something more original. High latitudes are becoming ever more fashionable and northern Europe, with its superb nature, convivial culture and avant-garde art & design has been reaping the rewards. In the past decade, Amsterdam has quietly become a luxury destination that measures up to any other. Drawn to the attraction of the beautifully preserved UNESCO World Heritage Canal Ring, the world’s finest hotel have settled here. Michelin stars, the European standard of culinary excellence, have rained down on Amsterdam restaurants. And shopping definitely entered the glitzy stage, with PC Hooftstraat and Van Baerlestraat matching the likes of California’s Rodeo Drive, but with added unique offerings from the world of renowned Dutch design.
