The yacht industry seems to be slowly recovering from the recession. We attended several yacht shows (Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, Monaco Yacht Show, China (Shanghai) International Boat Show) and noticed that during these shows the visitors increased and that the demand for new yachts expands. This is also noticeable in our office. The first new order we won is of a 34m yacht to be build in Turkey. The second order (code name: Jericho) is a 33.5m motor yacht which we’ve designed for a private client. This yacht has a maximum speed of 13.5 knots and a range of 3800nm and shall be built, finished and painted according to the internationally accepted best yacht standards. The spacious dining area, sunbeds, salon and bar easily handles up to 10 guests (including the owners). The guests stay in comfortable cabins and will be served by 4 crew. Besides that we are working with several shipyards on new inquiries. Because of the increase in work load we’ve also adopted two new employees. They are very experienced with the work we do and we’re happy to welcome them in our team. 2D-construction, 3D-modelling and many other fields of yacht design are well known by them. Besides our new employees we also have two students that join our team during a couple of months. They’re both working on their graduation project and we are pleased that we can assist them in this. They give us new insides, we think educating is very important to keep the quality of the dutch design firms this high. It’s pleasing to see that a student learns a lot from our work in such a short period. When these students finished their internship with our company we certainly want to assist new students.
