Port of Amsterdam
“The greatest port you never thought of”
The Port of Amsterdam develops, exploits and manages the Amsterdam port area. The total port area is responsible for € 6,7 billion added value per year and is constantly adapting to attract new types of business. One of the strategic goals of Port of Amsterdam is to build a cluster of companies in the super yachting industry (yacht builders or firms operating in the refit and supplying of super yachts). In addition, for two years in a row we have been chosen as the number 1 cruise destination of Western Europe, attracting around 800.000 river- and seacruise passengers annually.
Why Port of Amsterdam
Alma Prins-Droog, commercial manager Cruise & Superyachts, explains why Port of Amsterdam and superyachts create a perfect match: “Ever since the 1300’s ships were built in the Amsterdam area. Since then the region has always been known for its craftsmanship and the highest quality standards. The Port of Amsterdam is a great location for the yacht building and refitting industry because we provide excellent infrastructure and accessibility, have a close vicinity to Schiphol International Airport and the city of Amsterdam, and there are no tidal changes. In addition we are situated on a central location in the Netherlands in a true industrial area.”
Amsterdam as Port of Call
Next to accommodating the super yacht builders and refitting industry, Port of Amsterdam also has an ambition to position itself as a new Port of Call for super yachts. At this moment we are looking into the possibilities to create an exclusive docking area for super yachts on a unique location, in the heart of the city centre.
