Zeelander Yachts in the Netherlands has added nearly 5,000 square feet of space to its production facility, allowing it to build five yachts at a time.

“We are expanding in several phases, and the first one is now complete,” Sietse Koopmans, founder and chairman of Zeelander, stated in a press release. “The area for winter storage is increased, so we will be able to accommodate more yachts from clients that want us to take care of their yachts.”

The next phases of expansion are expected to include new offices as well as additional work areas within the shipyard.


“We have a healthy order book. Therefore, we decided to develop the facility step by step, without jumplike transitions,” Koopmans stated.

What models does Zeelander build? The builder has three models: the Z44, Z55 and Z72.
