Royal Huisman has launched ‘Huisfit’ dedicated to Superyacht refit, repair and renewal. The Dutch yard Royal Huisman who is principally known as a builder of fine custom superyachts has undertaken refit work for many years, however after an in-depth study they are broadening their business model with ‘Huisfit’ a carefully planned expansion of its superyacht refit and repair business. The important strategic move will utilize a more efficient deployment of its human and physical resources over a wider range and a greater number of projects.
Managing Director Alice Huisman notes, “It is well known that Royal Huisman houses a large concentration of expertise, infrastructure and specialist skills, and for customers seeking not just a standard refit but the optimum level of quality, enhancement and added value, the yard has a great deal to offer.
We were determined that this service would only be expanded when we were absolutely certain that Huisman quality could be assured in both custom builds and refit projects. With the full weight of our Intelligent Engineering process behind us, we are now confident that objective has been achieved.”
The work at Huisfit can be undertaken either at the Vollenhove yard or at deep water locations elsewhere in Holland to suit the requirements of the project, their owner’s or captain’s.
The comprehensive range of refit services is designed to be tailored to the exact requirements of each individual yacht project, whether modern or classic, sail or motor, from all quality superyacht yards.
Royal Huisman’s facilities for project managers and crew on-site are seen to be at the leading edge of industry practice following a major investment programme in amenities and services in recent years.
When a superyacht project or refit is finished, their owners and captains have the peace of mind of knowing that the work is fully supported by Royal Huisman’s fully manned 24/7 parts and technical advice service. Moreover, the yard will always stand fully behind the quality of its refit work – just as it does for new builds.
