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."

The first mobility experience centre has opened in the Netherlands, offering an interactive journey through the history and future of mobility. Initiator Pon aims to challenge visitors to think about how to deal with mobility in the future as cities become increasingly crowded. VBH – a forerunner in the application of luxury technology – partnered with Pon to create experiences with interactive video walls, an event hall, virtual reality and state-of-the-art meeting rooms.
The Move Mobility Experience is the first and only experience in the Netherlands completely dedicated to the mobility of goods and people, on land, at sea and in the air. Specially developed interactive games take young and old alike on a journey into the past, present and future. Move shows mobility developments in an interactive way and offers a platform to experiment with new forms of mobility in and around the city.
“We are proud to be part of this exciting new experience,” comments Friso van de Nes, Sales Manager at VBH. “After a long and creative journey with Pon, we have realized a brilliant result which is appealing for both the B2B market and end users. The in-depth understanding at VBH of how to apply technology and ability to anticipate continuously evolving customer desires are a key force behind our success. The installations differ a little from what we normally do as VBH on superyachts, but all have the same goal of offering clients the endless possibilities of technology.”
Mobility in one place
Pon is involved in mobility products, services and solutions globally, while also offering hundreds of industry solutions. What started as a small-scale family business in 1895 has evolved into a successful trading firm and well-known automotive retailer, leading in many markets. The Move Mobility Experience is located next to the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam, one of the most intensive intersections in the Netherlands in terms of mobility. In addition to insights into the future of mobility and various related services, it also showcases the latest models of bicycles and cars such as Gazelle, Cervélo, Audi, Porsche and Bentley.
