Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, 31 October 2018 - The Dutch boat company Waterdream, owned by Bernhard van Orange, has made a name for itself with beautiful handmade aluminium design motor boats and yachts built in the Netherlands. The boats can be completely customised to the customer’s wishes. To provide the boats with the ultimate personal touch, Waterdream works together with Esthec®: the composite decking material is available in various colours and gives each boat its own look. The innovative Fibre Optics system by Esthec® is available as an option on one of the Waterdream models. With this system, lighting in every conceivable shape can be integrated in the deck. “In terms of philosophy and innovativeness, Waterdream and Esthec® are a perfect match,” Bernhard van Oranje concludes.
Over the past six years, Waterdream has built up an excellent reputation in designing and building handmade aluminium boats that stand out for their sleek design, stability and handling in the water. Because the boats are made of aluminium, they require virtually no maintenance. The boat builder’s product range includes fast sailing seaworthy boats in four different lengths. Although the boats are based on the sloop, which is one of the oldest designs in shipping, Waterdream has taken the design to a higher level. A revolutionary hull design provides greater buoyancy and unprecedented stability.
Waterdream distinguishes itself in the market by the fact that the boats can be fully customised to size and taste. “A boat is an individual product,” says Bernhard van Oranje, founder of Waterdream. “We offer our customers numerous options, both in terms of exterior and interior, enabling them to completely personalise their boat. Think of things like special colours, a customised interior, exclusive upholstery and special underwater lighting.”
This is also why Waterdream has joined forces with Esthec®. The composite coating material is offered as an option on all models of Waterdream. According to Bernhard van Oranje, as a Dutch company, Waterdream enjoys likes to work together with the best Dutch suppliers. “Esthec® is a good match with our wish to offer options to personalise boats. The decking material and joints are available in different colours. That allows you to really give a boat its own look and fully personalise it. That applies not only to the outside deck, but also to the cabin and the wet room. The material is also easy to maintain and fits in perfectly with the low-maintenance aluminium from which our boats are built. And an Esthec® deck always stays cool, even when the boat is in the sun all day.”
Fibre Optics: a great experience
According to Bernhard van Oranje, his company is looking for partners who are just as innovative as Waterdream. His company wants to lead the way with innovations that make sailing even more enjoyable. Therefore, Waterdream offers the innovative Fibre Optics system by Esthec® as an option on one of its models, the Waterdream S-850 Speedster. The Fibre Optics system, which uses glass fibre, makes it possible to integrate lighting in the deck in every conceivable form. Bernhard: “The floor of our Waterdream S-850 Speedster is illuminated at night with beautiful lines and the Waterdream logo. A great experience. With Fibre Optics, we show that you can really personalise our boats. Buyers can also, for example, have the name of their boat depicted in the floor. The extras offered through Fibre Optics are a good match with our type of customers.”
