Rebuilds, refits, refurbs, upgrades and major maintenance work, Amsterdam Yacht Builders covers the full gamut of activities to the highest specs. With a choice of transparent costing arrangements giving complete peace of mind (no surprises here!), we understand how successful refits require a different approach to new builds with meticulous planning and dedicated project management. As the interface between owners and yard, we ensure crew members staying near their yacht during the refit are supported with practical issues. Together we add value to your yacht while bringing her up to the very latest global standards and personal preferences.
Future-proofing your yacht
In the right hands
Close to the open sea with no depth or height restrictions, our yard is easily accessible by water. Schiphol airport is just 20 minutes away and all the best Dutch sub-contractors are found in the direct surroundings. We’re also a mere stone’s throw from Amsterdam city centre, with its iconic hotels for owners and excellent facilities for crew.
Our yard is privileged to have experts with enormous experience in coordinating the various key refit disciplines, from electricians to systems integrators, from welders to joiners. They oversee and understand everything and are used to working with the finest co-makers to achieve the best possible result for a fixed price.
Our low overheads, flat organisation and open lines of communication enable us to provide a clear breakdown of expenses. All hours and materials are visible so you can track progress on your refit budget. We can also provide a fixed project price – either way, our close cooperation with clients means you are in complete control.
After sales you can rely on
A major refit doesn’t end when you leave the yard. Just as with our new builds, we pride ourselves on cementing long-term relationships and offering ongoing support wherever your journey takes you. Our international network is also at your service as we do everything possible to ensure maximum satisfaction.
