At DutchCraft, we are fanatical about building yachts that offer an exciting and modern take on how you experience life on the water. Our robust and spacious yachts deliver total freedom and versatility. Whether your passion is sport fishing in the Bahamas or partying in the Balearics, a DutchCraft yacht can take you anywhere.
The vision for DutchCraft was born from the experiences of our owner and founder, Sietse Koopmans, while he cruised the world on his explorer superyacht, covering over 100,000 nautical miles and 46 countries.
As a long-time yachtsman, Sietse understands the needs of owners – and that these might change from time to time, depending on where you are and what you are doing. So versatility of use and safe, worry-free boating are our top priorities, alongside outstanding levels of comfort.
A family-run business, DutchCraft is the sister company to Zeelander Yachts, renowned builder of luxury sports cruisers. The shipyards for both companies are located in Groot-Ammers, Holland.
The expertise, craftsmanship and investment from Zeelander’s building history naturally feeds into the design and construction of our yachts, while giving us the freedom to define DutchCraft in exciting new ways.
born from passion, evolved beyond expectations.
Our hometown of Groot-Ammers has been a historical location for the construction of ships and yachts since 1957, so the local community of builders and craftspeople goes back several generations. Although the site of construction has had a number of titles, the Scheepwerf Groot-Ammers name that we proudly carry today was founded in 1977.
Here you will find our engineering and production facilities, just a short distance from Rotterdam and the historic windmills that are symbolic of Holland’s engineering spirit. Our position offers direct access to the River Lek, an extension of the Rhine, with deep water and no height restrictions between Groot-Ammers and the sea.
Scheepswerf Groot-Ammers has always been a standard-bearer for Dutch craftsmanship and quality, and we are honoured to maintain this reputation through the experiences you will have with our products.
