Officially opened on 23 February, the state-of-the-art Nijkerk shipyard boasts a 70m long quay and room for the construction of up to three yachts simultaneously.
Dutch superyacht builder Lynx Yachts has announced that it has acquired a shipyard in Nijkerk. Less than an hour away from Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport, the Nijkerk facility enhances its building capacity.
“Lynx has always taken pride in maintaining the tradition of high quality Dutch yacht building,” says Slim Bouricha, founder and president of Lynx Yachts.
“We are dedicated to becoming the Dutch builder of choice for not just custom yachts between 30m and 50m, but also innovative yacht support vessels with our YXT range. Moving to our new production facility in Nijkerk is just one more milestone in our journey,” he adds.
Officially opened on 23 February, the state-of-the-art Nijkerk shipyard boasts a quay length of 70m and provides Lynx with the capacity to build up to three yachts simultaneously.
“This is an exciting step for us at Lynx Yachts,” says Filippo Rossi, sales and marketing manager for the yard. “This move signals that we are really shifting up a gear, having had an overwhelmingly positive response from the market to the yard’s commercial activities. The new production facility is part of our continuous effort to deliver value to our clients.”
Founded in 2011, the yard operates two divisions: the fully custom line division that includes displacement motoryachts from 25m to 50m in steel and aluminium, and the YXT – Yacht x Tender – division that currently includes displacement aluminium shadow boats and support vessels from 20m to 36m.
