You choose the size: 6, 7 or 8 meters in length.
You choose the propulsion: outboard, inboard, diesel, sterndrive or waterjet, single or twin.
And you choose the options you need, like fenders, console, T-top.

That’s how we work.

In quality we trust

If you ask us how to define QUALITY, we would use a combination of words. SAFETY first, period. And smart DESIGN. And CLEVERNESS. And the BEST materials. Quality for us is in the DETAILS. And quality is in ATTENTION. For the boats, for our team, for you.

On request we can build the boats to class X Hull only, light ship / fast crew boat by Bureau Veritas.

Bring down your carbon footprint

The carbon footprint of HDPE is 5 times lower then traditional boat building materials like aluminium and GRP.

Sustainability to the max

HDPE is an indestructible material. That means the product life cycle is much longer than any other material, like aluminium and GRP. Plus: the HDPE hull is completely recyclable. We call that sustainability to the max.
