The dutch superyacht tech campus

Focused on innovation, sustainability and growth of the Dutch superyacht building industry.

The most innovative location for the construction, refits and maintenance of superyachts

With our quality, reliability, innovation and design, the Netherlands is among the world's top superyacht builders.
The demand for large superyachts with increasingly luxurious finishes is increasing. In the past five years, 67 superyachts with a length of more than 50 meters have been built in the Netherlands alone. There is also a tendency for new owners to have (second-hand) yachts fully customized to their own wishes. Every year, dozens of these so-called refits take place. This creates the necessary challenges for the facilities and waterways of the shipyards.

The Dutch Superyacht Tech Campus will be built at a location in the Amsterdam harbor where hundreds of ships were already rebuilt, refitted and built in the 19th and 20th centuries. The Campus is highly accessible and tidal and can accommodate yachts up to 200 meters long.
The site will be designed to encourage specialists to work together in one location, to innovate together, and to create concepts that are world-leading.

Another unique feature is that the Campus offers the space to design and produce the entire yacht on site, as well as space for training. This reduces the need to travel to a minimum. Fewer travel and transport movements contribute to making the sector more sustainable. In addition, the construction of the various facilities, energy neutral or even energy generating is the starting point and transport on the Campus will take place by bicycle or electric baby carriage.

The Dutch Superyacht Tech Campus offers every opportunity to further strengthen the strong position of the Netherlands in this market and to grow employment in the sector.
