Experienced owners and captains know that cutting service and maintenance activities is the ultimate false economy. However well-built your boat, regardless of whether the crew keep her in good nick, there are always times to call on professionals you can rely on for major works. From a complete repainting of the hull to cleaning the underwater ship, from major repairs to an upgrade of your HVAC, from engine refurbs to rigging adjustments, we have every base covered. All our department managers are yachtsmen themselves with a rich experience and commercial background. They oversee craftsman who know what’s required for a quality service visit. Repeat business is our goal so expect the best.
Our yard is superbly positioned
As well as being in the capital city of Amsterdam, a great place for crew to stay and owners to visit, our yard is superbly positioned in terms of access to open water. There are no bridges of concern and the deep waters of the North Sea are close by for sea trials and arrival/departure.
Our 480-tonne crane is the largest available anywhere in the Netherlands and a prime example of the fine facilities and premium equipment available at Amsterdam Yacht Builders. It’s all available as our people pamper your boat with the service she deserves while ensuring everything functions to perfection.
Whether your yacht is a regular for maintenance or enjoying a first-time service visit, you can rely on our staff to treat her like a lady. From paintwork to HVAC, engine overhauls to deck repairs, our specialists will work tirelessly to have your project completed on time and within budget. No if, no buts…
All our maintenance and service activities can be arranged in advance, including various financial packages to suit your situation. We have service contracts to take care of periodic maintenance and can provide regular updates to existing systems. We also remain open to any and all special or one-off requests.
