Hakvoort Can Now Build Superyachts of up to 63 Metres

As part of their strategy to steadily grow in order to build larger yachts, a new slipway that allows Hakvoort to build superyachts up to 63 metres overall has been put into operation

Having raised the roof of the main construction hall by two metres in 2009 to build four-deck vessels, the yard’s new slipway was opened recently.

Offering a maximum lift of 1000 tonnes, the slipway allows the yard to build 63 metre superyachts with a beam of 11.60 metres. 

 “We are now in a position to bid for new 50-metre-plus projects, ” says Klaas Hakvoort. “Our yard is highly competitive in this size bracket due to our lean overheads and very high quality levels”.

In addition, the newly laid out facilities include flat surface concrete walkways and dock flooring. A heating system can create an even temperature throughout all sections of the hall, enhancing exterior paint and finishing.

To support the construction of larger yachts the firm is in the process of upgrading the yards main power supply and infrastructure, tripling its current capacity.
