Our new corporate video: A new force on the Dutch Yachting Industry

Leveraging on a century of experience and managed by people with a first-class reputation in the superyacht sector, Amsterdam Yacht Builders is based at a prime location in the Dutch capital. The new, highly experienced owners of a yard which dates back to 1921 are taking a down-to-earth approach to new builds, refits and maintenance work. They’ve also invested heavily in a facility that offers a broad range of services to sailing and motoryacht owners.


For Sailors, by Sailors

The Amsterdam Yacht Builders yard now covers 12,000 square metres of hard-standing space, three floating docks for vessels up to 70 metres, a 50 x 30-metre construction hall, a metal-working shed and several cranes. The installation of the largest boat lift in the Netherlands, suitable for vessels up to 480 tonnes, speaks volumes for the ambitious plans of the leadership team.

As the company motto ‘For sailors, by sailors’ suggests, everyone working at AYB has boating in their blood. “We know what a big decision it is to entrust your prized possession to a yard for major refit and maintenance work,” says managing director Robert Binnekade. “It’s a specialised line of work that requires a dedicated approach and the ability to return yachts to clients in the best possible condition.”
