The Van Dam Nordia shipyard is one of the world’s oldest yacht-builders. Since shipbuilding is a trade that often goes from one generation to the next, the Van Dam yard has also been passed on through the family ranks. Until this day the yard is owned by the Van Dam family and run by Robert van Dam’s son in law Jacco Jongkind, Managing Director of the yard. The design department is lead by Robin ten Hoope, who has been co-responsible for the latest generation of Nordia yachts for the past 10 years.
The yard currently has about 30 direct employees that closely work together with our sub-contractors to achieve our single and ultimate goal; Building yachts to the highest quality standards. Our devotion to deliver true custom yachts requires a staff that solely consists of specialists.
In addition to the design and construction of new yachts, Van Dam Nordia also carries out extensive refits to the highest Dutch standards.
This month Van Dam Nordia welcomed the Yacht Sirene to our yard, a motoryacht built by Feadship in 1962. This lovely yacht has already had many modifications over the decades, and the current owner is aiming to bring her back to original state. Yachts Sirene is due to be ready in about three months time.
Van Dam Nordia’s activities include the laying of new teak decks, new windows, a paint job and a complete overhaul of the engine room. The client chose Van Dam Nordia for this extensive refit work because of their renowned craftsmanship and professionalism, combined with some impressive cost efficiencies.
