Zeelander Yachts reports solid 2017 growth and new models for 2018


Dutch yard based in Groot-Ammers

Zeelander Yachts has reported a 40% increase in new yacht sales last year and a healthy order book for 2018.

Founded in 2002, the company specializes on production of high-end motoryachts. The current range includes two models, Z44 and flagship Z55. The Z44 is an instantly-recognizable lobster-style cruiser with a modern twist and powerful motor, capable of reaching 35 knots, panoramic views and spacious interior with one or two cabins. The Z55 is the ideal step-up from the 44-feet model, offering a roomier cockpit and three cabins.


The company has a new yard based in Groot-Ammers. “Our Groot-Ammers yard has a 2000 m2 footprint on an impressive 20000 m2 waterfront plot”, comments Leonardo van den Berg. “We can build up to three boats at a time and have a six boat per year total capacity, based on the Z55. We do our own design together with renowned Cor D. Rover, detail engineering, sales and marketing."


Overall Zeelander Yachts have built and sold over 30 yachts, most of them on the US market.


The shipyard expertise extends beyond 55-feet yachts and in 2018, Zeelander will unveil two new larger models.
