Feadship starts construction on new 140m drydock in Makkum

New-Build Refit

Feadship has started construction on a new production shed at its facility in Makkum, the Netherlands where soon it will be able to facilitate even larger yachts in the new 166-metre-long building that will house a 140-metre-long drydock. In addition to the shed itself, Feadship will further expand the facility with new office spaces and workshops.New Feadship Makkum construction projectPhoto: Feadship

The current Hall A, at 182 metres with its 120-metre long drydock, will become the smaller of the two build sheds at Makkum as Hall B’s drydock is not only 20 metres longer, but also 2.5 metres deeper and a metre wider. 

“This development involves a considerable investment,” says director Henk de Vries. “While the good Feadship order book is one reason for increasing capacity, as a family business we find it crucial to secure the future for generations to come. The community of Makkum has very close ties with this yard."New Feadship Makkum construction projectPhoto: Feadship

The first phase of construction will be completed by November 2019.
