The greatest complement to any shipyard is when clients are delighted with your work and recommend you to like-minded individuals who are also focused on achieving the right quality at the right price. While not all projects can be publicised in the luxury yacht world for owner-privacy reasons, below you can read about some of the partnerships we’ve enjoyed and the pride we take in their successful completion. Like every boat built, refitted or serviced with Amsterdam Yacht Builders, they remain part of the family.

AYB undertook a haul-out and then full checks and maintenance on all of this Hakvoort yacht’s valves ahead of her five year Lloyd’s Survey.

The 25-metre sailing yacht Ophira, originally built by Van Dam Nordia, was hauled out and given a comprehensive new anti-fouling system, including all preparation and primer coat application as well as the anti-foul itself.
SY Borkumriff II
The 31-metre superyacht Borkumriff II was hauled out in advance of being put up for sale and, after the surveyor’s inspection, we dealt with various technical issues. These included fixing a throttle cable, which sounds simple but had a significant impact on the yacht’s electrical setup. The stainless steel and wood on the bow pulpit needed repairing and the hydraulic system was upgraded to improve flow to the bowthruster.
This pedigree 29-metre motoryacht from Germany was hauled out for anti-fouling and we repaired the seating and fittings in the bowthruster tunnel. An all-new sternthruster with tunnel was also installed on Raider.
Measuring a total of 69.65 metres, the converted motor yacht Sherakhan was too large for our team to haul out, meaning that all of her works took place in the water at our AYB facility between August-September 2022.
The works began as a haul-out and a respray of the topsides on one side of the yacht, due to the damage she had sustained after undergoing a collision with another vessel. We built a specially-designed container hall covered by a tent in order to enable these works to take place at our facility. Unfortunately, due to three extreme storms which were faced by the Netherlands in February this year, the tent broke and partially fell on Nageira.
