The next stage in the history of Holland Jachtbouw started when the foundations for its new site were laid, which will comprise three halls and offices. The occasion was officially marked by the Lord Mayor of Zaandam.
The first phase, which is due for completion by the end of 2014, will see the completion of a 60 metre x 26 metre x 18 metre shed and extension of the main construction hall to 55 metres.
This first stage of the project will allow for the arrival of two upcoming projects for Holland Jachtbouw, a 46 metre sailing yacht and the 51 metre Rainbow II.
Holland Jachtbouw’s Managing Director, Roeland Franssens said about the project: “This new construction in the shipyard is in part due to our new build projects coming into the shipyard later this year. We need more space to accommodate further refits and additional new build projects in 2015 and this also provides a ‘bird’s eye view’ for the managing project teams.”
