Dutch yacht builder Lynx Yachts announced today that it has officially taken over a shipyard in Nijkerk, roughly one hour outside the city of Amsterdam. The acquisition will enable Lynx Yachts to meet the growing demand for seaworthy yachts in the range between 30-50 metres.
The new facility offers space to build up to three yachts simultaneously and features a quayside of 70 metres in length.
"This is an exciting step for us at Lynx Yachts," says Filippo Rossi, sales and marketing manager for the yard. "This move signals that we are really shifting up a gear, having had an overwhelmingly positive response from the market to the yard's commercial activities. The new production facility is part of our continuous effort to deliver value to our clients."
"We are dedicated to becoming the Dutch builder of choice for not just custom yachts between 30m and 50m, but also innovative yacht support vessels with our YXT range,” adds Lynx Yachts Founder and President, Slim Bouricha. “Moving to our new production facility in Nijkerk is just one more milestone in our journey."
