n&jNorthrop & Johnson has opened a new office in Holland. At the helm of the Dutch branch is office director and yacht broker Derk Jan Rolff. His vast experience within the yachting industry and close connections to shipyards and high-end clientele will prove beneficial to his new roles.

Rolff began his career in the yachting industry as a broker with De Valk; he also successfully started the De Valk Antibes office. In a few short years, he was able to sell many yachts ranging in length between 80 and 160 feet such, as well a couple of new builds, at shipyards in the Netherlands, Italy and Turkey. He then moved back to the Netherlands to become director of De Valk International, where he developed sales teams and grew the company on a global scale. He also continued his sales practice and is equally savvy selling motor or sailing yachts.

In 2009, Rolff forged out on his own and created Holland Yacht Partners, which specialised in the sales and marketing of Dutch-built superyachts. After a number of successful years, he has decided to join the Northrop & Johnson global team thanks to a long-standing successful relationship.

The Holland office is located at Laren, Ruiterweg 15, Postal Code 1251 ZX. Derk Jan Rolff can be reached at +31 0 35 544 71 58 or Derk.Rolff@NorthropandJohnson.com
