The history of Hakvoort goes back to 1919, when Albert Klzn Hakvoort purchased a shipyard that had launched its first vessel way back in 1780. Albert then continued laying the companies firm foundation of an excellent and thriving business and eventually put the name of Monnickendam back on the world wide map.
Initially Hakvoort Shipyard started building fishing boats, steadily moving into the yacht building, as the demand for pleasure sailing grew. The yard has remained in family hands throughout the decades, passing down from father to son several times. Moreover, entire families of craftsmen have also worked at Hakvoort for generations, helping create an atmosphere of personal involvement in the company and community alike.
Thanks to the outstanding quality and craftsmanship of their yachts, such as the 44 metre motor yacht Lady Duvera and the 50 metre superyacht Lady Marina, Hakvoort has become one of the world's leading yards. One of the most important aspects of their success is the personal approach and close collaboration with the owners.
Two enclosed and temperature controlled docking and construction halls make part of their facilities as well as a metal workshop, a dedicated office complex and a large quayside operation. Around 90 highly skilled staff work at the company, dedicated to building unique yachts from design conception to launch.
Having raised the roof of thier main construction hall by two metres in 2009 to build four-deck vessels, the yard’s new slipway opened in January 2012.
Offering a maximum lift of 1000 tonnes, the slipway allows Hakvoort to build superyachts of 63 x 11.60 metres. This is part of Hakvoort’s strategy to steadily grow in order to build larger yachts. “We are now in a position to bid for new 50-metre-plus projects,” says Klaas Hakvoort. “Our yard is highly competitive in this size bracket due to our lean overheads and very high quality levels”.
In addition, the newly laid out facilities include flat surface concrete walkways and dock flooring. The cleverly designed heat spreading system will create an even temperature in all sections of the hall, further enhancing the already very high standard of exterior paint and finishing. To support the construction of larger yachts Hakvoort are also in the process of upgrading our main power supply and infrastructure, tripling its current capacity.
Located in the town of Purmerend, Hakvoort superyacht's own joinery workshop Unlimited Interiors employs some 30 dedicated carpenters. Their unique eye for detail and style guarantee perfect megayacht interiors. The excellent skills at Unlimited Interiors are available on sub-contractual basis to other yachts as well as Hakvoort. They also provide independent services on custom-built projects.
Hakvoort also offers refitting services of all kinds of forms. Whether upgrading an old faithful or transforming a newly built vessel into the owner's personal style, the shipyard will meet all their clients' needs. One great example is the 2004 Queso III, which has been completely reborn into the stylish motor yacht Sea Eagle.
Their hard work and dedication has been recognised by the International Superyacht Society and Show Boats International. Since 1994 a number of Hakvoort yachts have been nominated for an award and at least five of them have won in their class. Some of the winning superyachts are the Lady Marina (1994), Freesia (1998), yacht Spada (1999), Saga from 2002, the luxury motor yacht Tigre D'Or (2005) and the 2007 launched superyacht Perle Bleue.
Some of the other stunning and undoubtedly luxurious Hakvoort Yachts, also available for yacht charter, are the 45 m MY My Trust, the 50 m JeMaSa yacht and the 2010 launched luxury charter yacht SnowbirD (formerly Pretty Woman).
