Nico van Leeuwen - director Marketing & Sales at VBH: "We believe the ultimate luxury is custom innovation, turning your dreams into reality. By developing user-friendly innovations for all on board, we create new experiences for the yachting lifestyle."
“We not only specialise in Audio Visual and IT, but also in lighting and security and bespoke installations that merge art and technology. It’s both exciting and inspirational to see the different technical disciplines within VBH working together to realise a project. The potential of what can achieved is always growing since technology develops so fast. Anticipating the future requires us to be flexible and agile and keep thinking ahead. The process of integration is as much an art as a science, and when everyone with their different skill sets and specialisations works as a team the results can be truly exceptional. Combining the very latest in technology with the beauty and craftsmanship of the world’s finest yachts is something of which I never tire.”
Van Leeuwen: "VBH offers fantastic service throughout the yacht's lifecycle. We employ dedicated, highly specialized Field Service Engineers and Service Coordinators to ensure fast response times, no matter where the yacht is. With our 24/7 helpdesk, we are able to offer round the clock remote assistance. We have a worldwide support system, with quick response times."
