More and more owners are choosing to keep their precious yacht while upgrading her to 21st century standards. The problem is finding a yard with the requisite skills in house.... After all, refits require a whole range of specialised skills if the integral beuty of your yacht is to be retained.

Dok en Scheepsbouw Woudsend B.V.  has the answer. Our experienced team can transform the exterior and/or the interior precisely according to your wishes and to the highest Dutch standards.

Example include:

  • Replacing rust affected parts with stainless steel - a Kuipers speciality. The high gloss finish of this metal provides an elegant and modern look.
  • Creating a new interior layout and/or style.
  • Installing a new air conditioning system.
  • Altering the layout of your engine room. Engines and equipment can be replaced or reconditioned.

Our most recent major refit was on Don Luca, a 32m classic motoryacht originally launced by the G. de Vries Lentsch yard in 1967. She arrived with her steel hull painted in grey primer, an empty engine room, a broken mast and parts of the interior missing.

Now the new interior has an owners' stateroom, ensuite accommodation for six guests, and cabins for up to eight crew. The main saloon was fitted in a classic style and considerable attention was paid to outside facilities and deck spaces, including installing a separate steering station on the boat deck.

We recognise that every yacht is unique, and every client requires personal and professional advise. Contact us today for an obligation-free discussion on how we can refit your yacht.
