Hakvoort Shipyard -

Semi-Custom Yacht Designs

A century of boat building experience, the latest technologies, finest equipment and traditional values of craftsmanship.

Hakvoort Shipyard has established itself Albert Klzn Hakvoort as a brand to be trusted. Beginning life in 1919, when Mr Albert Klzn Hakvoort purchased a small shipyard in Monnickendam, in the Netherlands, Albert set about making wooden and eventually steel fishing vessels. As the decades passed and the fishing industry waned, Hakvoort Shipyard saw a niche in the pleasure sailing market and the very first custom designed Hakvoort was built in the early 1980s.

A Family owned Company

Over the years the company has passed from father to son several times, being now in its fourth generation of ownership. Even its employees have worked with the brand generation after generation, with entire families of craftsmen working within its team. Of its over 60 staff members, 20 of them are engineers that have worked with the company for many years, initially taking some four to five years to train within the company. Dr Albert Hakvoort, the Great Grandson of its founder, said: "Finding new quality staff is one of our biggest challenges. "

And it's a challenge that the company is in the process of facing as we speak, with the recent expansion of facilities meaning that the company now has two working slipways, the newest of which is able to handle vessels and luxory yachts up to 63m in length.

Each and every one of the yachts that leaves it's slipway is one of a kind and has been designed with the attention to detail that is expected from its well established name.

Interior Design

The floating interior of its unique and custom vessels comes directly from its own brand, Unlimited Interiors; while every other aspect of the boat is built at the shipyard itself.

Unique Innovation

One particular feature that sets these large boats apart from many others on the market is the design of the internal piping throughout. Dr Hakvoort explained: "All piping is floating throughout the boat, so there are almost no vibrations in the interior. This makes the boat very quiet."

It's one of the many reasons that customers return time after time, some for a new yacht, some for a simple redesign of their existing Hakvoort yacht but either way, the company can boast customers that have been returning to them for some ten years.
