Staying small when you’re big
“When owners visit AMELS here in Vlissingen, they very quickly note the yard’s unique atmosphere, the sense of calm determination. Even though we are very busy, things run in a smooth and well organised way. But AMELS has always been much more than that. There is something extra which draws on the centuries of shipbuilding excellence here on the North Sea. We work on very large, very complex superyachts, but we get on with things in an uncomplicated, easy-going way. Even though we are the largest superyacht facility in the Netherlands and part of one of the world’s largest shipbuilding groups, in our mentality we still prefer to work like a small yard. says Rob Luyendijk Managing Director at AMELS.
A superyacht is only the beginning
The reason AMELS has become the largest Dutch superyacht builder is because we know it's not just about the yacht, it's about creating the opportunity for shared experiences and wonderful memories with your loved ones.
Rob Luijendijk: “As Managing Director, I am tempted to say that this cascades down from the top, but in fact it often feels like the other way around. It’s the feeling of determination I get when I’m here that keeps me going during my travels all over the world. Everyone at the yard knows that their role is important. This is why, when we deliver a yacht – whether it’s a new build or a refit project – we celebrate that achievement as a team, from the lead engineer to the superstructure cleaners. You can only promise the absolute highest quality if you know that every weld, every component, every finish has been applied with absolute pride in your craftsmanship.”
