Dutch design

The Dutch yacht industry is famous all around the world. Our yards are well known because of their craftsmanship, innovative power and the outstanding collaboration among all disciplines of the ship building industry. Dutch design has become a worldwide name: Holland is one of the global market leaders in the production of yachts and smaller sailing ships. That’s the reason why Focus Sails and Sailing is taking part in Orange Yachts.

This may not be surprising, regarding the history of the country. Holland has always been strongly connected with water and navigation. The ship building industry can rely on a long tradition. Yet since the 16th and 17th century the Dutch have built ships to sail the seas and oceans all over the world. Nowadays, the yachts and sailing ships serve mainly for leisure. The yards in Holland try to meet the needs of their customers as well as possible. The experience and knowledge gained in ages of ship building is combined with modern techniques and light materials, with a strong focus on saving energy and sustainability.

All this creates yachts with a classic and traditional look. These comfortable yachts are built with eye for detail still sail the world’s oceans.
