Claasen Shipyards


Further expansion

Thanks to the company’s burgeoning reputation, larger projects begin to arrive with increasing regularity, forcing Claasen to once again seek new premises. At the end of 1989 the company moves to an 8,500m2 business terrain in Kalverringdijk, on the Zaandam/Wormer border, which formerly housed the Wittenburg cocoa factory. The complex has direct access to the River Zaan and includes an 18 x 60-metre hall, making it the perfect accommodation for the building and refitting of larger yachts.

A second hall is soon added with a size of 23 x 35 metres. The facilities are completed in 1992 with the addition of a 40-ton boat lift, a substantial investment for those days.
