Dutch delights: HISWA Holland Yachting Group members unpack the premiers in Monaco

27 sep 2017

The Dutch yachting industry always plays a key role at the annual Monaco Yacht Show and this year’s event will be no exception. The 33 members of the HISWA Holland Yachting Group – an association of the leading Dutch yards and equipment suppliers with roots dating back to 1932 – will be showcasing their latest yachts, innovations and products throughout the show and in the dedicated Holland Pavilion.

The central hub of the HISWA Holland Yachting Group's activities at this year's Monaco Yacht Show will be located at Quai Antoine 1er B, stand QAB7, between Quai des Artistes and Stars 'n Bars. The Holland Pavilion is always a bustling place of business and networking, representing both member companies and the association’s ten partners. With tasty treats and traditional Dutch hospitality, this is a great place to share thoughts with specialists from every area of the superyacht world. 

The HISWA Holland Yachting Group will also be launching the latest edition of its annual Think Yachts Think Holland magazine at the Monaco Yacht Show, and visitors can pick up a copy in the Holland Pavilion. It includes a wide range of fascinating articles which encapsulate why the members of the HISWA Holland Yachting Group have consolidated their strong position in terms of market share over the past year.

The reasons behind this continuing Dutch success story will also be very much apparent on the quays in Monaco. Oceanco’s 110-metre JUBILEE – the largest yacht built to date in the Netherlands – will also be the largest superyacht at the show. Feadship will have the 92-metre Aquarius and 54-metre Hurricane Run on display, and is also offering a Carte Blanche Experience at its stand where visitors have the chance to discover their Feadship DNA.

Another superyacht making its public debut in Monaco will be the first Mulder ThirtySix, which was delivered to her owner this summer. And some of the stars of the future will also be unveiled during the show for the first time. The striking design for a new AMELS 111-metre Full Custom concept will be displayed in the form of a two-metre long scale model at the AMELS stand. Moonen Shipyards will also present its new Navarino 'go-anywhere' concept, a crossover design combining elegant lines with the bold sturdiness of a traditional expedition-type yacht.

The stunning Aston Martin powerboat from Quintessence Yachts will also be at the show and other HISWA Holland Yachting Group members will be announcing details of new orders, including a 50-metre ketch commissioned by Vitters.
