Amsterdam through the eyes of a superyacht owner

13 jul 2018

Yesterday Port of Amsterdam organised a cruise for various members and partners of the HISWA Holland Yachting Group. The event was a thank you for their support in developing Amsterdam as a superyacht destination. The cruise took guests to the main berths available for superyachts in the Dutch capital before heading into the canals. All in all it was a great way to experience Amsterdam through the eyes of superyacht owners.

HISWA Holland Yachting Group and Port of Amsterdam are making real their ambition to establish Amsterdam more firmly as a major destination for superyachts. The diversity in berths located in the heart of the city centre, combined with excellent re-fit and maintenance facilities in the port area make Amsterdam a unique destination for superyachts.

A quiet transformation has been underway in the superyacht world for some years now. Where the Mediterranean and the Caribbean used to reign supreme in terms of both facilities and interest, a new generation of yacht owners are increasingly looking for something more original. High latitudes are becoming ever more fashionable and northern Europe, with its superb nature, convivial culture and avant-garde art & design has been reaping the rewards. Jeroen Sirag, Export director HISWA Holland Yachting Group “Amsterdam is an ideal destination for superyachts due to its unique DNA. We are ready to become first port of call for superyacht building, touristic purposes and refit & maintenance. We will make sure we will create an impeccable Dutch experience for all involved.”
