Due to expanding operations, and the increased demand for larger hulls and constructions, Bloemsma Aluminiumbouw recently acquired Jachtwerf Bloemsma Makkum, a former part of the Bloemsma Van Breeman Shipyard.
The production halls of Jachtwerf Bloemsma Makkum are located just a stone’s throw away from the facilities of Bloemsma Aluminiumbouw in Makkum, and their size and location offer major prospects for growth for the business, as well as obvious logistical benefits.
Jachtwerf Bloemsma Makkum was founded over 40 years ago, and over the years, the yard built 136 steel and aluminum hulls before switching its focus to complete yachts in the 1990s. Vessels up to 48.15m have been built at the yard in recent years.
As a much more modern business, Bloemsma Aluminiumbouw started operations in 1993, focusing on the construction of high-grade aluminum hulls for sailing yachts and superstructure parts for motor yachts over 24m in length.
The business again developed into classic yacht manufacturing, building the legendary J-class. Four of the new generation J’s have a Bloemsma hull, and a total of 80 projects have been realised under the name Bloemsma Aluminiumbouw.
The new yard, simply known as Bloemsma, will focus on aluminum hulls and superstructure parts for motor yachts. The impressive facility and extensive know-how will allow for the manufacture of complex aluminum constructions, and the increased capacity of the business will allow the company to respond to growing aluminum construction requests.
