Dutch superyacht support vessel specialist Lynx Yachts has recently announced its acquisition of a new facility based in Nijkerk. The new yard was opened in February, and is now able to facilitate three builds simultaneously.
Situated less than 50 miles from Amsterdam Schipol airport, the new facility boasts a quay length of 70m.
Founded in 2011, Lynx Yachts launched the 33m Heliad II in 2013, followed by the first hull in the YXT 20 series of aluminium shadow boats last year.
Slim Bouricha, founder of Lynx Yachts, said, “We are dedicated to becoming the Dutch builder of choice for not just custom yachts between 30 and 50 metres, but also innovative yacht support vessels with our YXT range. Moving to our new production facility in Nijkerk is just one more milestone in our journey.”
Filippo Rossi, sales and marketing manager, commented, “The new production facility is part of our continuous effort to deliver value to our clients. 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 yard’s plans for expansion include building YXT models measuring up to 36 metres, and steel and aluminium displacement yachts up to 50 metres.
Bouricha continued, “We want to create a whole new way of yachting and build yachts that will stand the test of time.
“The attention to detail that goes into every aspect of our builds is unparalleled. As a result, these are legacy projects; yachts that will truly be the custodians of the next generation.”
