KM Yachtbuilders, the sister company of KM Yachtservices, is well-known for building custom-built aluminum sailing yachts. Every yacht is built to the preferences, size and taste of the owner, just like an Italian tailored suit.

These yachts sail under the following names:
– Bestevaer
– Stadtship
– Axonite

KM Yachtbuilders also builds ‘one-off’ yachts, like the German Frers 88ft ‘Tulip’ and the Satellite Yacht Design 48ft ‘Leeloo’.

The Bestewind 50, derived from the Bestevaer yachts, is a GRP yacht. The hull is built on site and finished by us here in Makkum.

Other yards, such as Royal Huisman, De Vries Feadship, Nordia van Dam, RSQ and Alufleet, have engaged our expertise by outsourcing aluminum work to us or by insourcing our people at their yards.
