Decades of partnerships with satisfied clients
The greatest complement to any shipyard is when clients are delighted with your work and recommend you to like-minded individuals who are also focused on achieving the right quality at the right price. While not all projects can be publicised in the luxury yacht world for owner-privacy reasons, below you can read about some of the partnerships we’ve enjoyed and the pride we take in their successful completion. Like every boat built, refitted or serviced with Amsterdam Yacht Service, they remain part of the family.
20m | S/Y “Flyer”
20m | S/Y “Kings Legend”
48m | S/Y “Wisp”
The 48m Royal Huisman sloop Wisp was lifted onto a pontoon in 2018 after which we water-pressured her handsome classic hull.
50m | M/Y “Totally Nuts”
The new 50m superyacht Totally Nuts was placing on a floating docked at AYB in 2020 as we facilitated Feadship with a range of commissioning activities, including hull adjustments, and her sea trials.
31m | S/Y “Reesle”
Another regular at AYB is the schooner Reesle. Hauled out on various occasions, our specialists have installed a controllable pitch propeller, stepped the masts, removed rigging and given this 31m boat new antifouling. Reesle also wintered with us in 2020-2021.
42m | S/Y “Ranger”
The 42m Ranger yacht was built in 2003 by Danish. She features an exterior design by Sparkman & Stephens and W Starling Burgess and an interior by Glade Johnson. She cruises at 8 knots and reaches a top speed of 11.0 kn. She can sleep up to 10 guests taken care of by a crew […]
25m | S/Y “Palmyre”
AYS removed the sails of the 25m Holland Jachtbouw yacht Palmyre and gave her a good hull cleaning before Claasen started its refit of this classic. Later we lifted her from pontoon into water and enabled commissioning and sea trials in 2020.
36m | M/Y “Kokoro”
Kokoro is Japanese for heart and we loved assisting Moonen with the commissioning and sea trials of this brand-new 36m beauty in 2020, including making adjustments to the propeller.
28m | S/Y “Mandarine”
We‘ve welcomed the 28m Hakvoort Mandarine three times to AYS (1x floating dock, 2x lift). Activities include underwater cleaning and antifouling, replacement of seacocks, installing sternthruster and variable pitch propeller, adding MOB stairway, complete wood varnishing and total refit of both masts.
39m | M/Y “Lady Charlotte”
The 39m Feadship Lady Charlotte was lifted onto a pontoon by AYS and we also pressure-washed her hull before she was transported for an extensive refit by the owners in 2019.
27m | M/Y “Griffioen”
The 27m motoryacht Griffioen, originally built by Bloemsma & van Breeman, was a welcome visitor to AYB in 2020 as we hauled her out of the water to inspect her prop shaft and make play measurements.
32m | S/Y “Foftein”
After engineering the haul-out plan and pressure-washing, AYS placed the 32m Foftein in a custom heated tent in 2020. Protected from the wintry conditions, we sandblasted the hull of this Royal Huisman ketch, touched up paint, added new antifouling and cleaned the propeller.
43m | S/Y “Canova”
As well as designing the hoist plan to haul out Canova, AYS made the cradle for this 43m Baltic sailyacht in 2019. We then carried out a variety of activities such as cleaning the hull and repairing various stainless-steel elements including the anchor.
56m | M/Y “Broadwater”
An innovative tandem lift combining the AYS crane with a tele crane was required to place the 52m Feadship Broadwater onto a pontoon. This was engineered with HEBO and we also pressure-washed the yacht’s hull in preparation for her major refit at Royal Huisman in 2019.
43m | S/Y “Asgard”
After hauling out the 43m Abeking and Rasmussen ketch Asgard based on our in-house hoist plan, various works were carried out on the propeller shaft and rudder in 2019. We then facilitated Royal Huisman with the post-refit commissioning and sea trials.
37m | M/Y “Suakin”
Two visits have been made to date by the 37m Hakvoort Suakin. AYB activities ranged from inspection work and replacing pumps and air-conditioning to overhauling her hydraulics (including the davits) and upgrading the navigation gear.
