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.
