Live from China: Royal Huisman at the Hainan Rendez-Vous
By Merijn de Waard
The renowned Dutch superyacht builder Royal Huisman is exhibiting for the third time at the Hainan Rendez-Vous. “Now we have been here for three times in a row people start to recognise the Royal Huisman brand and we have met people who have come to our stand each year”, says Evert van Dishoeck, Commercial Manager of Royal Huisman.
With the number of sailing events increasing in China there is also a growing interest for sailing yachts, although these are mostly smaller sailing yachts of around 40 and 50 feet at the moment.
Evert continues, “We have met people on our stand who already own large yachts and are very interested to learn more. Yesterday we had even met one client who wants to come and visit us at the shipyard in Holland.”
Royal Huisman is also very pleased with the development of the Hainan Rendez-Vous. Marketing manager Jurjen van ‘t Verlaat comments, “It’s very nice to see the development of the event and it’s great to be part of it. That people return to our stand each year is a confirmation that is worth to be here for us”.
