Marcel van der Spek - Commercial Director Esthec: "Basically, Esthec’s roots go back to 1964. Two people began developing composites that year because they saw a bright future in the replacement of timber, steel and tar.

15 years after the ambitious start of this Dutch company, their composite material was being applied on large and renowned cruise ships. Another 15 years later half the world’s cruise market wanted nothing but this composite material and another 15 years later more than 75% of the market is dedicated to it. Hundreds of cruise ships daily navigate the both calm and rough seas with the proven certainty of these indestructible, durable decks.

Esthec is a strong and solid material that consists of composites and fillers. Click here to read more about the core.
The success story is far from over. In 2009, Esthec was founded by that same Dutch company. Building on these tested and successful cruise decks, Esthec is a decking material that in aesthetics and material accurately ticks all the boxes for the yacht industry. Not based on traditional standards, but on a sharp focus on the future.

Renew itself
Esthec continues to renew itself and keeps looking for ways to improve our product, our production processes and our application. Our basic principle: we want to do it even better and more economically. In our drive for innovation we are naturally aware of our social responsibility. To act with respect for people and the environment is an important core value. Quality management is another focal point. Sales, application and production have been certified by companies that have been accredited by the Board of Accreditation. Esthec’s certifications include EN-ISO 9001 en EN-ISO 14001."

Choosing Esthec requires a certain amount of progressiveness.  However, our experience tells us: once crazy about Esthec, always crazy about Esthec. Who is next?

    As the HISWA Holland Yachting Group gears up to celebrate its Golden Jubilee, the association and ten of its leading members will be taking part in the METSTRADE Show from 13 to 15 November. The largest B2B event on the leisure marine calendar is held in the RAI Amsterdam convention centre and includes a dedicated SuperYacht Pavilion spanning three halls.

    Members of the HISWA Holland Yachting Group have played their part in all 30 editions to date of the METSTRADE Show, with the role of the large yacht sector at the event becoming increasingly prominent over the decades. This year’s exhibition sees the SuperYacht Pavilion expanded with an extra hall and a dedicated networking hub called the Shipyard. A record number of 313 exhibitors have booked stands, part of the overall METSTRADE Show which is expected to see some 1500 participants welcome around 25,000 visits.

    The HISWA Holland Yachting Group bar at stand number 11.509A will be another key meeting place for professionals as it forms the centre of the Holland Pavilion area. It will also provide information on how the association will be marking 50 years of Export Excellence in 2019 as well its ambitious plans to increase the profile of Amsterdam as a superyacht hub.

    Six leading companies in their field will have stands in this special HISWA Holland Yachting Group zone, showcasing the latest innovations in their respective fields: Hydromar (hydraulic equipment), Kuiper Marine Panels, Maxwell Marine (anchor winches, capstans and windlasses), Pon Power (official Caterpillar dealer), RH Marine (system integration) and Rondal (spars & rigging, doors and composite products).

    Four other specialists will be exhibiting in other locations around the METSTRADE Show, namely Cramm (gangways, cranes, passerelles, doors, hatches, platforms, balconies and boarding ladders), Esthec (decking), Huisfit (refit division of Royal Huisman) and Naiad Dynamics (stabilisers).
