Claasen Shipyards

First class facilities

Claasen Shipyards has two facilities. The first is in an excellent location on the outskirts of Amsterdam in the town of Zaandam. Our place at the heart of the Dutch yachtbuilding industry and close to Schiphol International Airport is ideal for owners who wish to visit the yard during the build. It is also a great spot for owner’s representatives and captains, whom we offer accommodation, office space and other forms of support during the project.

As well as enjoying the first-class working facilities, those who stay with us during a build or a refit always enjoy their time at Claasen. The area called the Zaanstreek was the first industrialised region in Europe, the engine behind the success of the Dutch Golden Age and a leading innovator ever since. The region is well known for its food industry, classic Dutch landscape, green wooden houses and windmills. And the fact that Amsterdam is just a short ride away adds to the attractions.

Less than an hour north, our second facility in Makkum is specialised in the construction of aluminium hulls for luxury superyachts. Each hull is custom-built and quality is assured by meeting all the requirements of class societies such as Lloyds and ABS. The yard has a direct connection to the IJsselmeer lake and has created the modern underwater hulls for many Truly Classic yachts, playing an important part in the success of this concept.
