Zeelander Yacht doubles order book and expands facilities

Zeelander 5

Zeelander Yachts has expanded its shipyard in the Netherlands and doubled its order book, with the boatbuilder labelling 2021 a “a year of outstanding success”.

Due to growing demand worldwide, Zeelander says it has expanded its shipyard in The Netherlands with the new addition of a large office and workshops.

“We increased the size of the hall by 500 square metres and added a second floor of about 700 square metres in order to increase the workspace,” says Floris Koopmans, brand manager at Zeelander Yachts. “In addition, underneath this extra deck, we created workshops for carpentry, mechanical works, electrical and logistics.”

Last year, the company also appointed Grant Hooper as CEO and unveiled its new Zeelander 5 motor yacht.

The first Zeelander 5 will hit the water in mid 2022 and the yard reports that seven units have already been sold.

Claimed to be the quietest vessel in its class, the Zeelander 5 should top 45 knots. At anchor, the generator and air-con produce sound levels of 46dB.

Zeelander prides itself by going “beyond the ordinary to facilitate the wishes of its patrons”. An owner’s request last year was to create an interior that matched that of his private jet including meticulously crafted exotic wood details, custom leatherwork, and even a floor that took over 27 coats of lacquer to perfect.
